Hey peoples... What up??? HAPPY 4th of July!!! It has been a CRAZY week... I had the opportunity to go to 3 O-Town  shows this week :o) I was at the Meadowlands, Westbury and Delaware shows-- WOOOO HOOOO!!! (lol) I must say,  besides the (almost) heat stroke at the Meadowlands show, I had a really great time :o) My friends and I got meet & greets for Westbury and Delaware which made everything even better! I am in the process of tagging and uploading my pics onto picture trail... and if anyone knows how I do at concerts... THERE ARE TONS OF PICS to go through (lol). I am also hoping to change the layout a little so, it may take me a bit longer. I promise when it is all done, it will be well worth the wait :o) Stay tuned for NEW FAN ENCOUNTERS,  JUICY RUMORS and of course... NEW PICS!!! Until then, everyone please have a SAFE and Happy 4th of July...  ~D~
 
Want some NEW CONCERT PICS from the DELAWARE show on 6/29/03 to tide you over until I'm finished scanning...???  (lol)  Check out the The Pics section now!!!

Hello my faithful O-Town's Finest: O2 visitors... It has been WAY too long since the last update, I know :o( Unfortunately when you're all grown up, you sometimes have to do a lot of things you may not want to, but just have to. Needless to say, I have not forgotten about you guys or O-Town... but we should really be honest with ourselves and admit that there really hasn't  been that much going on in the O-Town world :o( So sad, but true. I am hoping that this summer tour will bring back everyone's enthusiasm and perhaps remind old fans that they're still able to kick some butt live and maybe even create some new fans!!! I just wanted to post to let you guys know that I will be updating for the next week or so to try to get the site back up to speed... If there is anything you guys have that you would like for me to add as far as: NEWS,  (NEW) PICS, GOSSIP, etc... PLEASE feel free to E-MAIL ME at otownsfinest_02@yahoo.com !!! I would REALLY appreciate anything you would like to share ( and you WILL get credit for your help :o)  Until next time... Peace     ~D~ 
 
P.S. -  Check out the latest tour dates in The Music section :o)

Holla!!! What's up peoples??? Long time no speak (lol). I've been getting quite a few e-mails asking when I was gonna update... I realize that it has been awhile, but until my neck and back are feeling better from the car accident-- I was advised by my doctor to stay off the computer as much as possible. Unfortunately, that leaves me in sticky situation because I am torn between feeling better and updating the site (lol). Nah,  for real...

O-Town will be featured in the first segment of the show, so don't miss it!

Please check your local listings for time & channel in  your area. 
Maury airs at different times, on different channels, in different
cities, and I just can't keep track!

Wow... It has been quite some time since the last update hasn't it? :o( I did all this updating on 9/15 and when I went to publish the page it didn't work.  It was as if I hadn't done anything at all and all the information I had typed was gone :o( So... I must say,  I have been a bit frustrated with this whole process and I needed to regain my composure before I attempted to update again. Please forgive me. There is a whole bunch of updates and I'm not exactly sure where to begin. So if I don't get to everything this time, I will gradually catch everything up this week little by little. Sound fair??? Cool :o) Okey dokey... On with the updates....
 
** THESE ARE THE DAYS @ RADIO **
"These Are the Days" is doing very well at radio.  As of 10/1, 64 key Top 40 stations added the song to their play lists.  It's O-Town's biggest add week ever, and the 4th most added song in radio history (behind the likes of Madonna, Matchbox Twenty, and J-Lo)! CONGRATULATIONS  GUYS!!!

Hey!!! What up, my peoples? I know, I know... It's been a minute since the last update :o( I'm so sorry! I've been doin' a lot of traveling, but I'm back now :o) Actually, there really haven't been too many updates lately anyway... But, here's what I've got for ya:
 
UH OH... BAD NEWS EVERYONE :o( ... News From DOT:

I have been given permission to post this announcement from J Records:

As most of you know, we were close to picking a first O-Town single this week. However, the songs coming in are all sounding so incredible, we have decided to take advantage of the upcoming recording sessions planned for the end of this month and early July which give ourselves and O-Town the time and process needed to record this material.

In doing this, we have also decided to shift back their Top 40 impact date to August 12th and the album release date to October 1st. With amazing producers on board and so many songs unrecorded, this seemed to the best solution in order to set up the superstar release we expect to have from O-Town.

Doesn't that suck!?! I guess we shoulda known, huh???  Oh well... I guess I'll keep you posted if there are anymore changes :o)

If you haven't read O-TOWN'S NEW MESSAGE to the Official Street Team, you can read it in the 
O-Town Messages section!!! (They are so adorable:oP )  
 
Also, O-TOWN will be featured in their own SPECIAL on NICKELODEON on AUGUST 11th at 8:30 pm EST!!! Be sure to mark your calendars for that one!
 
Wanna know about other O-TOWN APPEARANCES in the future??? Go to The Music section to find out where the guys will be next!

Thursday, 6/6/02:
 
Wasssup, peoples??? This just in from the O-Town Street Team:
 
Hey, everyone! The guys are still busy recording the CD and the release dates have been changed again. The CD will hit stores on August 27th. The single will hit radio on July 1st. Pass the word along to all of your O-Town friends.
 
Boooooo!!! I hope that's the LAST time they're gonna push it back :o( We can't wait much longer, can we??? :oP

Wednesday, 6/5/02:
 
Hey everyone! Thank you SO much for the feedback! I'm so happy that you're glad I'm back :o) That means a lot to me! So, on to the LATEST NEWS...
