98° Announce 2018 Christmas Tour
Follow up to last year’s sold out tour

“…the silky R&B harmonies on “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” —
land like sprinkling snow.” – The New York Times, 2017

98° will embark on a 36-date tour this Christmas. Fans responded with overwhelming positive messages to the last year’s hit-filled, high-energy and fun-filled holiday show, so this year, more dates and new cities have been added. 98° last Christmas tour played to packed houses across the country. This year’s 98° at Christmas 2018 kicks off on Thursday, November 1 in Winnipeg, MB and ends Friday, December 21 in Appleton, WI.

The group will stop at Omaha’s Orpheum Theater Thursday, November 29, 2018 at 7:30 PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 25 at 10 AM. Tickets start at $32. Tickets will be available at TicketOmaha.com, at the Ticket Omaha* Box Office located inside the Holland Performing Arts Center, 1200 Douglas Street in downtown Omaha or by phone at (402) 345-0606.

98° has not slowed down since Christmas. In between the band’s busy individual schedules, they’ve headed back into the studio with new music coming later this year. The band will appear on the 67th Miss USA Pageant on FOX on Monday, May 21. But performing to their fans is what 98° loves most, so they’ve added a few pre-Christmas dates including August 18th in Thackerville, OK at the WinStar World Casino and Resort (sold out) with their friends, The Backstreet Boys, and will be part of Disney World’s International Food and Wine Festival/ Eat to the Beat concert series.

Last year’s Christmas tour was in support of their first full length Christmas album in 18 years, Let It Snow. The album received glowing reviews from both fans and critics alike. The album featured the group’s signature R&B-tinged, four-part harmonies and was a natural follow up to their 1999 multi-platinum selling This Christmas. In addition to their tour, they also performed on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Disney’s Magic Holiday Celebration, Good Morning America, Today Show, Kelly & Ryan and more.

In five short years — from 1997 to 2002 — 98° sold a staggering 10 million records, scored a chart-topping single, “Thank God I Found You,” with Mariah Carey and Joe, and collaborated with their collective idol, Stevie Wonder, on “True to Your Heart,” for the 1998 animated Disney film, Mulan. Their four-million-selling album, 98° and Rising (1998, Motown), spawned the top 5 favorites “Because of You,” “I Do,” and “The Hardest Thing,” while 2000’s Revelation (Universal Records), which sold two million copies, peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200 and yielded a trio of hits, “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche),” “My Everything” and “The Way You Want Me To.”
