Things will be heating up at Hard Rock Casino this December when favorite hometown boy band 98 Degrees takes the stage.

The group — brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons — will play the casino on Dec. 17. 

Tickets (starting at $24) are on sale now at

According to a release from Game Day PR, the Queen City's tank-top-wearing heartthrobs sold 10 million records between 1997 and 2002 due to top 40 singles like "Because of You," "Give Me Just One Night" and "The Hardest Thing."

They then went on hiatus, releasing album 2.0 in 2013 and the holiday record Let It Snow in 2017.

Their trademark R&B four-part harmony returned in 2021, with the release of their single "Where Do You Wanna Go" in July.

What did they do in between?

Game Day PR says, "Over the last 15 years, members of the group have enjoyed careers outside of music with brothers Nick and Drew Lachey both featured on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. Jeff Timmons joined members of Backstreet Boys and ‘NSYNC for VH-1’s Mission Man Band and Nick Carter’s feature, Dead Seven, while Justin Jeffre is involved in a number of community causes around Cincinnati." 

(One of Jeffre's causes is PHLUSH, which advocates for equitable access to public restrooms.)

In a tweet, the group said, "We’re excited to be heading back to Cincinnati to play at the Hard Rock Casino."

Hard Rock Casino is located at 1000 Broadway, Pendleton. It opened its doors in July.
