From a press release:

Throwbacks aren’t just reserved for Thursdays – they’re happening all summer long.

The national Pop 2000 Tour will deliver the “TRL” moments that brings pop fans right back to the early 2000s when boy bands ruled the airwaves and MTV. Hosted by Lance Bass of NSYNC, these shows feature live performances by platinum-selling 2000s artists O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and LFO singing some of the decade’s biggest songs like “Bye Bye Bye,” “All or Nothing,” “On the Way Down,” “Summer Girls,” and more. This who’s who of chart-topping hit-makers will provide the soundtrack for a Napster-fueled trip down memory lane for audiences that came of age in the early aughts.

Last night, it was announced that the Pop 2000 Tour will stop at the Circle Drive-In Theatre in Dickson City on Saturday, Aug. 21, presented by Stage West in Scranton and DamnMillennial Promotions.

Most COVID-19 restrictions are lifting statewide next week, so unlike previous outdoor shows at the drive-in, this is a general admission concert. Fans can get much closer to the stage and do not have to watch the performances from their vehicles or the adjacent parking spaces.

Gates at the Circle (1911 Scranton/Carbondale Hwy., Dickson City) open at 5 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets, which are $35 for general admission or $59 for platinum passes (includes dedicated VIP viewing at the stage and VIP tent access with a bar and restrooms), go on sale this Friday, May 28 at 10 a.m. via Prekindle.

Lance Bass is the quintessential illustration of a highly successful and driven jack-of-all- trades: singer, host, actor, producer, writer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and cosmonaut. Beyond his fame as a member of the phenomenally successful group NSYNC, who sold an impressive 60 million records worldwide, Bass has made himself a household name throughout the globe.

O-Town’s story began in 1999 when “Making the Band” chronicled their rise to success throughout three seasons of the series on both ABC and MTV. The group’s first two full-length albums included No. 1 singles “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing” and the Top 40 hit “We Fit Together.” “All or Nothing” was also nominated for Song of the Year at the Radio Music Awards in 2001.

Ryan Cabrera is the singer and songwriter behind ubiquitous smashes such as “On the Way Down,” “True,” and “Shine On,” as well as albums that include 2004’s “Take It All Away,” which hit No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200. He was also featured heavily on MTV’s “Ashlee Simpson Show” and “The Hills.”

LFO burst onto the scene in 1999 with the No. 1 smash hit “Summer Girls” and followed with another Top 5 hit in “Girl on TV” and the Top 10 hit “Every Other Time.” Today, lone surviving member Brad Fischetti keeps the LFO name alive, performing the songs to fans old and new.
