‘We remembered what we hate about each other’: ‘N Sync’s Chris Kirkpatrick rules out a tour as he reveals their reunion was a one time thing to honour Justin Timberlake
‘N Sync fans prepare to be disappointed – there will be no repeat of Sunday’s performance.
While their brief reunion was enough to send Twitter into meltdown and leave their now Twenty-somethings fans hyperventilating, the boy band have no plans to get back together, member Chris Kirkpatrick says.
The singer told Miami, Florida, radio show Johnny’s House that while fun, the band, including members Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass, broke up after years of touring together, so do not plan to repeat it.

One night only: It’s been seven years since the hugely popular band ‘N Sync called it a day and they have no plans to start touring again
When asked by the host if a tour will be happening, the 41-year-old was emphatic about it.
‘No this was for Justin to get the Video Vanguard Award,’ Chris said.
‘It was funny because all of us getting back together we remembered what we love about each other and what we hate about each other.
‘It was just a bit of fun.’

While fans were blown away by the band’s VMA medley of hits Girlfriend, Gone, and Bye Bye Bye, Chris revealed it was pretty tough on the guys who have not stayed on top of their dancing skills like Justin.
‘Honestly when he talked to us I thought we were just coming out with mic stands and singing, and when I came home from rehearsals my girl’s like ‘Why are you drenched?’.
‘I’m like I’m too old for this.’

Keeping the performance a secret was also hard Chris said, but his biggest concern was always Justin.
‘When we were doing rehearsals in Miami I was scared to death.
‘I was so worried about not messing up for him.’
Band mate J.C. Chasez also ruled out a tour while talking to Ryan Seacrest.
Good to be back: The boys felt like they had never split as soon as they started rehearsing
The 37-year-old said on Monday: ‘No … it was just about five guys who were great friends who spent 10 or 15 years together touring and we wanted to give that back to our fans, but we were there mainly to support Justin.’
The singer said it was great to be back with the band as it felt like old times.
‘Literally, two minutes after seeing everybody you feel like no time has passed.’

However, somethings have changed, or slowed down rather.
‘This was the first time we had a rehearsal together in 10 years, so everyone was going, ”Can we go through this one more time slowly?” so that part was pretty funny.’
The five piece had a hugely successful career spanning almost a decade from the mid 1990s, but even with last night’s success the group reportedly are far from unified – perhaps leading to the reluctance to do a reunion tour.
His show: Justin Timberlake loved having the band back together but reportedly limited their stage time
According to Us Weekly the band was disappointed that Justin limited their set.
A source told Us: ‘They were pushing for more.
‘While he was thrilled they could come for him, he didn’t want the reunion to be the whole thing. They originally were told that it was going to be more of their old hits, not just Bye Bye Bye – but then Justin reworked it.’
