'NSYNC Push Back Tour, Album Release

Celebrity due July 24; PopOdyssey road trip kicks off May 23.

'NSYNC hit their legion of fans with a double whammy Wednesday morning. Their record company, Jive, announced that not only has the group delayed the release of its new album, Celebrity, from June 26 to July 24, but the start of the boys' PopOdyssey tour has been pushed back again as well.

The band isn't quite done recording the album, a Jive spokesperson said. The album will display the group's writing and production skill on some of the tracks, and it'll also feature contributions from Rodney Jerkins, Brian McKnight, the Neptunes and Wade Robson.

This is the second time 'NSYNC have had to postpone tour dates. Last month the quintet cited added production preparations as the reason why they changed PopOdyssey's opening night from May 12 at Miami's Pro Player Stadium to May 18 at Jacksonville's Alltel Stadium. The tour is still slated to kick off in the Jacksonville venue, this time on May 23.

'NSYNC plan to make the wait for their outings worth it, promising to give audiences a preview of some of Celebrity's songs (see "'NSYNC Tour Will Give Fans A Taste Of Celebrity"). The album's first single, "Pop," will hit the airwaves soon, with a video to air on May 28.
