*NSYNC Taking A Break To Get Creative
June 21, 2002 – *NSYNC star JC Chasez took time to chat with David John Farinella of Launch.com. JC addressed the group members taking some time to themselves to work on individual projects before teaming back together. “We kind of always reinvent ourselves, but now I think we’re in a position where–after cranking out five albums in the last four years, one being a European album–we’re going to push ourselves a little bit more,” he says. “We’re giving our ears a break from ourselves, so we can step out and be creative. The whole idea behind it is that we’re each going to go out and listen to different things and write with different people, so that when we come back we have this melting pot and it becomes this whole new thing.”

Britney Spears & *NSYNC Shows Are Like Broadway
June 10, 2002 – Chris Macias of the Sacremento Bee spoke with set designer/art director Jim Day ahead of Monday’s Britney Spears concert at the Arco Arena. Day and Steven Cohen help design the stage used by Spears on this tour and has masterminded several other tours including *NSYNC’s. “Every time you’re talking about an *NSYNC or Britney Spears tour, it’s like taking a Broadway show out on the road,” Day says. “It might take up to 20 trucks to haul the sets around. *NSYNC and Britney — their training was with Disney, so they’re performers and can sing and dance at the same time. I’m an older rock ‘n’ roll kind of guy, but the kids seem to love it.”
