Back in the day, we’re talking 1999 here, B96 threw a big Halloween Bash.
The bash took place on October 27th and 98*, LFO, Lou Bega and Christina Aguilera all performed.
Now you won’t see any of those names on this year’s Jingle Bash lineup except for 99’s headliner…. Britney Spears.
Yes, back in 1999, Britney was just starting her career and now she’s headlining our Jingle Bash as the princess of pop!
We dug up some pics/videos and other goodies from then but keep in mind, smartphones weren’t a thing back then and very few people used a camera to capture “everything.”
Therefore, this is technically INTERNET GOLD!
Check out all the photos HERE!
At one point, Britney sang “Born To Make You Happy” to our music director Erik Bradley.
The picture still hangs on our wall despite Erik saying that it “was a little embarrassing.” We’re not jealous at all.
We also found this gem – a video of Britney’s Halloween Bash rehearsal at the Allstate Arena, where she’ll be gracing the stage again 17 years later!
Yes, Hit Me Baby One More Time really is timeless.
We also found this ancient B96 bash t-shirt. That’s some incredible graphic design and detail. IT could be yours for 30 bucks!
Check out the shirt HERE!
That was a fun blast from the past. Don’t miss seeing Britney at our B96 Pepsi Jingle Bash on Dec 10th. Get tix HERE!
