‘Nsync announced the Pop Odyssey tour in February 2001, which was to coincide with the release of the Celebrity album, scheduled to release in May but pushed back to July, 2001. Despite the push back of the album, ‘Nsync hit the road in May of 2001 with 88 trucks going to 38 cities over 45 days at sold out stadiums across the country. Early on, Pop Odyssey was already being called the biggest Pop Tour ever.
