MTV’s fake boy band 2gether is one step closer to reuniting!
Alex Solowitz, Kevin Farley and Noah Bastian — a.k.a. three of the four surviving members of the group — will appear (minus their frontman Evan Farmer) at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club in Los Angeles on May 4 to discuss their return and what they have planned for their full-scale reunion later this year.
Solowitz informed fans on his Twitter that the threesome will appear at 8 p.m. on May 4 as a warm-up for the full reunion.
“ATTENTION 2GETHER FANS, the John lovits theater pod cast is not our 2gether reunion show. It’s a teaser, we’ll be doing a Q &A,” he writes. “We will also be doing 2 or 3 songs. Also @EvanFarmer will not be at this one.no heart throb = teaser:)lol.”
Farmer is on board for the real thing, but explains on his Twitter that “you’ll know it when it happens, trust me! At very least I’ll let you know;) a full-production reunion is still a bit away…”
The fifth original member, Michael Cuccione, died in 2001 at age 16 after suffering from leukemia.
The reunion began when Solowitz posted on his Facebook page back in November that he was interested in getting the band back together. MTV has gotten on board, giving the group permission to film a new movie that the network will have the option to buy. So it might not make its way to TV, but either way it’s happening.
