*From Kristin:
"The person who introduced O-Town at the show in Washington, DC on 9/10 told us that they were recording the concert for O-Town's live CD that is coming out. I'm not sure when, but they jazzed up the show and it was really cool. And they also had somebody taping it. So, we'll see what happens."

*From Britt:
"I was at Toys R Us today, and as we were leaving, I noticed a box of posters on the one cash register. So I walked over to it, and there were really nice laminated O-Town posters in there along with laminated 2 Pac and Aaron Carter posters as well. They run at $6.00 a piece and were really nice if you're a big O-Town fan. So you should go to Toys R Us and check it out!!"

"Yesterday, was O-Town grazed up with presence at Silvermountain in Kellogg, Idaho! It just so happened that they were staying in the same hotel as my family and I. While my sister's and I were up on the mountain waiting in line for the concert, my Mother stayed back at the hotel where she met Ashley, Trevor, Dan, Mike, and there keyboard player. The keyboard player was up at the front desk asking if housekeeping could do a load of laundry for the boys, but they said that they could not do that. My Mom then took it upon herself to ask the keyboard player if he would like her to do it for them. He then replied "Oh, it is only underwear.....the boys don't have any clean ones. My Mom said come to my room and I will gladly do there laundry. Unfortunately, he did not take her up on her offer. O-Town if you read this I just want you to know that my Mom is willing to do your laundry any time you may need it done. Keep her in mind next time you are looking for a laundry attendant in Idaho."

Thanks to Tanya for this bit of news!
"I went to the show in Salem, Oregon last night. I met Mike Cronin and he said that the deal went through Aug. 30th for the third season of MTB. He said that the way they're going to do it is that they're going to tape a show and then air it. Then they will tape another one and air it, so that if they cancel it again, they wouldn't have wasted a bunch of money on a whole season."

Mike Cronin posted on The Mike Cronin Club site. Here's what he wrote:
"What's up everyone, we just got back from Germany and are now back on our US tour. After that be sure to check us out on the Britney Tour starting 10/25. Thank you again to everyone for the support, and look for Making the Band season III filming starting in a couple weeks."

"I was lucky enough to talk to Ashley on the phone a couple of weeks ago when he was on the Steve and DC morning radio show (out of St. Louis). I could only ask him one question so I asked if he thought "Love Should Be a Crime" would ever be released. He said that he hoped so, it was one that he was really pushing for, but he really wasn't sure. He didn't sound to confident about it's release, but they probably don't get to make that decision all by themselves anyway."
Thank you Nancy

UPDATED AUGUST 16, 2001

THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE
Here are some exerpts from an email sent to me by a friend of the site, GODROCS (Sarah), regarding the incident in Midland, Michigan on August 14. She just wanted to express some of her views and explain a little of what happened that night in a fans eyes...not a reporter.

"I've read all the reports on it but one thing always seems to be left out. The guys gave the Midland County Fair Board a week and a half to change the time. 102.5 FM, WIOG, a radio station around here was one of the sponsors of the show. It would have been extremely easy for them to get on the radio and tell people that the show was going to be moved an hour ahead. If the radio station would have done this, there never would have been a problem. As it was, Midland County are the ones that made the mistake."

"The Fair Board told O-Town that they either preformed at 8pm, or they cancelled the show. Not wanting to cancel on all of their fans, the guys showed up anyway. They performed their hearts out acapella style and it was amazing. By the time the sponsors turned the sound on, they were almost through with the concert anyway. When the guys finished singing (and this is the part that ALWAYS gets left out) Dan came BACK on stage to apologize to all the fans. He said how sorry he was that the fans had gotten involved in this mess. He said that he hated getting fans involved in legal matters that they really had no part in. He said again and again how sorry he was. And you can ask anyone that was there...Dan was CRYING. Yes, that's right, CRYING. He was clearly upset about the whole mess."

"To make matters worse, after the guys left, one of the DJ's from WIOG came out with an "official" statement from the Midland County Fair Board saying that O-Town did not care about their Michigan Fans and that, basically, they thought they were too good to perform for us. Erika, O-Town has come to Michigan EIGHT times since December. I have been to six of those eight concerts. The guys LOVE Michigan fans as much as they love all their other fans. And the sad thing is, people who don't know the FULL story, are going to believe the worst of O-Town. I'm doing my best on different websites from MI as well as on my own site to keep the word out that O-Town DID NOT purposely leave the fans hanging."

And here is an email she received from the sponsoring radio station:
"O-Town, didn't perfrom at their scheduled time. They went on stage an hour and a half early, because they wanted to leave for Germany that evening."

"Despite efforts from the Midland County Fair Board, the promotors, and our radio station, O-Town insisted that they go onstage. The power was shut off, yet O-Town and their management decided to sneak on stage. They performed for 45 minutes without power. The crowd was disappointed, to say the least. A full refund will be made for anyone who purchased tix to the show."

"As for our radio station, we will not be playing O-Town's music anymore. Our listeners voted "All Or Nothing" off our playlist."

-Now that is so sad. Taking them off the playlist? Fans, please know that this is not the fault of the group. They do not get involved in planning or promoting. They do their music thing and other people handle their business. So don't take it out on them. I would have been disappointed too but there are two sides to every story. I am not taking their side just because I am a fan. You only know what the media wants you to know. And they are making the guys look bad. But they can't control how their schedule is made. And their management even requested a time change from the fair promoters in enough time.

And did any Chicago fans see them on WGN news this morning? They spoke about the incident and showed them perform despite the power not being on at the beginning.

Thanks to Richelle who sent us this info from
www.seventeen.com:

ALL OR NOTHING: The guys of O-Town want to set the record straight -- they aren't feuding with other boy bands. "The rivalry isn't between us and 'N Sync, the rivalry is between the press and the press," Jacob Underwood tells worldpop. "They cause this stuff because maybe they get a more interesting story than they had last week. We have no fight with 'N Sync." But, Jacob was quick to add, "The secret is that they went through the same process that we went through when we formed." 'N Sync maintains they aren't manufactured, like O-Town. "They know that they're lying," Jacob continues. "That's something they can deal with on their own."

As I write this I am flying over the southwest dessert on our way to LA for tour rehearsals. We will be rehearsing at the Greek Theatre in LA for a week staring on Monday so we should be ready for the first show there. We plan to take the 4th of July off so we can all go out and party. Everybody is in great spirits and we can't wait to get started. We have been rehearsing all week in Orlando putting some different touches to the new show. Shy Girl and Sensitive will now be in the show, as well as a NEW song from the boys that is featured in the new movie Dr. Doolittle 2... great song. Might be their next single. It's called "We Fit Together".

There will also be some surprises... you might hear Dan sing some Stevie Wonder, Eric swoon you with some Prince or even Trevor twangin' with some Garth Brooks!. Yes I said Garth Brooks. Jacob's back is still bothering him a little so he'll be hangin' back with the band on a few songs. But he's getting better every day and should be fully healed soon.

Now that we're starting the tour look for a lot more activity on this website. We will be updating more often with more exclusive pictures every week and we'll be in the chat room more often too. The future is looking bright. There is talk of an upcoming European tour and after that, an Arena tour in the US and Canada.......so If we're not coming to your town on this tour don't fret.....you will get a chance to see the boys soon.

With that said... the stage is up, the lights are on, let's hit the road and see what happens!!

I, Erika, have some info regarding O-Town's schedule for June 30. They were originally supposed to play two shows that day...one in Chicago and one in Kentucky. It seems their KENTUCKY appearance has supposedly been CANCELLED. (The show is still on but O-Town will not be there in KY. If you know otherwise, please let us know.) They were supposed to play in Chicago at noon then fly out to Kentucky later that evening. B96, the radio station hosting the Chicago show, has confirmed on air that O-Town will be playing the Chicago show on their MAIN stage sometime after 4:00pm. This was in response to an email I sent to them regarding the schedule change I heard about. They have changed this because if O-Town played at noon in Chicago, there would only be around a few thousand people there that early. Since their song AON is in the top 10 requested in Chicago, they want to thank all the fans and be able to perform in front of the almost sold out crowd of 60,000 people. If you have further questions, please email me at erika@o-townfanpage.com. They may go to Kentucky much later that evening. I don't know. But on the radio station in Chicago, they said they will not make it to KY. Let me know if you hear anything different.

Then after the MTB saeson returned to TV in April, they made an amazing jump gaining 55 spots from #94. Most recently, they gained 10 spots and are #30 this week on Billboards top 100. Way to go! Also, "All or Nothing" has spent 2 weeks on the chart. Last week, they were #60 and this week, they have moved to #49. When the single goes on sale on June 26 (US only- July 23 in the UK) you can make it number ONE in sales. And if you buy it, you can win a great prize from the O-Town Fan Page! More details next week!
