Tell us about the difference between your old touring days and touring now (as parents, husbands, etc.)
I think we know what to expect now. It'll be great to share such a wonderful ride with loved ones other than just the four guys.
What are you guys most excited about for the summer tour with NKOTB and Boyz II Men?
Getting back in front of all of our loyal fans, and touring with two legendary bands.
What do you think of the new crop of boy bands, like One Direction and The Wanted?
Young, talented guys that have great formulaic pop tunes.
Do you still get 98 Degrees' fan mail?
Yes, only now it comes electronically instead of on paper in envelopes. Technology!
Make sure to tune into an interview with the whole band in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" on April 2nd at 5 pm EST. Fans can go here to join in no the fun:
