’90s R&B-pop sensation brings concert to The Event Center in July

PHILADELPHIA — May 6, 2019 — The male R&B vocal group 98 Degrees brings its smooth harmonies, found in hits — such as “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)” and “The Way You Want Me,” — to The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino on Saturday, July 27, at 8 p.m. Tickets for “An Evening with 98 Degrees” go on sale Friday, May 10, and cost from $69 to $89.

With over a decade of experience in the music industry, 98 Degrees delivers catchy melodies featuring silky four-part harmonies. The band consists of Ohio-natives Jeff Timmons, Justin Jeffre, and brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, and has sold 10 million records. Their chart-topping hits include “Thank God I Found You” with Mariah Carey and “True to Your Heart” featuring Stevie Wonder.

Since the talented quartet emerged in 1997, the group’s debut album “98 Degrees and Rising” has sold four million copies launching them to international stardom with a string of hits like “Because of You,” “I Do” and “The Hardest Thing.” The band released its second successful album “Revelation,” which sold two million copies and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

After years of pursuing separate solo careers, the group reunited in 2013 and released the album “2.0.” The vocalists then joined New Kids On The Block and Boyz II Men on the road before embarking on a sold-out tour of their own. The group went on to create a full-length Christmas album, “Let It Snow” in 2017. With eight Top 40 singles, 98 Degrees has performed its soulful pop classics all over the world.

In addition to live performances and concerts, The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino can be reserved for a variety of occasions, including weddings, corporate receptions, seminars, trade shows and more. The space features floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of the Delaware River waterfront and the Ben Franklin Bridge. Parking is always free.
