JC Chasez Opening For Britney In U.K., Lines Up Solo Dates

'NSYNC popster, former co-star sets eight dates with Spears in the U.K.

Britney Spears has at least one friend left from her "Mickey

Mouse Club" days.

JC Chasez, who starred on the revamped TV series along with Spears,

Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera, will open for Britney when

the pop princess performs eight shows in the U.K. beginning April 26 at

Wembley Arena in London. The stint, which includes three other Wembley

shows, wraps up May 5 in Birmingham.

The 'NSYNC singer, who is promoting his solo debut,

Schizophrenic, will bookmark the British trip with four West

Coast dates before and a handful of Midwest and East Coast dates

afterward.

"Right now my whole world is this record," Chasez said recently. "I'm

proud of this record. I want everybody to hear this record. And I want

to sing it for everybody."

Before launching his U.S. tour April 19 in Anaheim, California, JC will

shoot a video for the album's second single, "All Day Long I Dream

About Sex." The director and concept have not yet been decided.

"All Day Long I Dream About Sex" was produced by Riprock 'n' Alex G,

the duo behind the equally steamy "Some Girls (Dance With Women). The

tune is a more electronic and club-friendly, however, with its

oft-repeated chorus.

Chasez said he titled the album Schizophrenic after its wide

array of styles, or personalities.

"I didn't think in terms of any barriers, I was just wide open with

it," he said. "I didn't go for any certain sound. I just went for great

tunes ... and it didn't matter what kind of music it was. If it was

electronica, if it was rock, if it was ballads, whatever, I made

something that felt really good."
