Japan Dates Precede 98 Degrees' U.S. Tour

Boy band to play five shows in Far East before returning in August for 22 shows mainly in Northeast, Midwest.

98° is heading to Japan for a handful of dates and will return in August for 22 shows in the United States.

After performing Tuesday (June 5) in New York at the "Roseland Will Rock" benefit for breast cancer research (with 'NSync, Destiny's Child, Eve and Macy Gray), the group will play the KJYO Radio Show in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Then it's off to Japan for five shows, including three at U.S. military bases, according to a spokesperson for the band's label.

The group will return to the States for an August 3 show at the Clare County Fair in Harrison, Michigan. They'll remain on the road, mostly in the Northeast and Midwest, until September 7. Opening acts for the tour have not been announced.

"My Everything," an album track from their 2000 release Revelation, is #22 on the Billboard adult-contemporary chart, and the group shot the video for its next single, "The Way You Want Me To," at the end of May.
