Just days after reuniting onstage at Coachella with Ariana Grande, the guys of *NSYNC are apparently mulling over the thought of reuniting. But like their performance last week, it would be without Justin Timberlake.
According to Billboard, the group’s return as a quartet could be on the horizon after the amazing fan response to their Coachella reunion.
“There’s such a hunger now for great pop, for nostalgia,” an industry source told Billboard. “It’s almost like a warm, comfortable blanket, especially for the generation that grew up with them, who are now moms and dads. The timing is right.”
Brad Wavra, who was the group’s tour manager in their heyday in the early 2000s, seemed to echo the sentiment, saying: “There’s no denying the talent that Justin has, but the four of them together proved it [at Coachella]: the music sounded great, they looked great, the fan response was awesome and I think that that would be the same all across America.”
Wavra hinted that a Las Vegas residency, much like the Backstreet Boys’ and Britney Spears’ mega-successful runs, could be a great start. According to the report, minus Justin, the guys have kept in close contact over the years.
One fan who is excited at the possibility is BSB member, Nick Carter, who Tweeted his excitement at the prospect, saying he would go and watch them and proposing a group tour:
Reps for the group have not responded to the claims. So it looks like we will just have to wait and see.
