Boy bands Five, Blue, 911, A1, Damage and 3T are all joining forces for a special 13 date tour.
The move follows the success of The Big Reunion on ITV2.
The Big Reunion Boy Band Tour will open at the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield on Friday October 17 and is hot off the heels of last year’s two sell out shows in Sheffield, playing to over 20,000 people!
Series one of The Big Reunion which aired last year starred some of the biggest pop groups of the nineties coming together for the ultimate reunion. Acts featured included Five and 911 who were joined by surprise addition Blue mid-way through the series.
The groups were thrust back into the spotlight, reliving their dreams and revealing the highs and lows of life in a pop group. The groups followed the success of the programme by embarking on two UK and Irish tours in May and December, performing in arenas to almost 200,000 fans.
The show returned to TV screens this February with a brand new line-up of popstars – including Boy Band Tour members A1, Damage, 3T and the newly formed 5th Story. The new supergroup is comprised of solo artists Gareth Gates, Adam Rickitt and Kavana, along with Another Level’s Dane Bowers and Blazin’ Squad’s Kenzie. Combined they have had 27 top ten hits including five number ones, won MOBO, Smash Hits, and MTV awards and played to sold out crowds around the world.
The latest series has documented exclusive and explosive accounts from former pop heroes, with revelations about drugs, fisticuffs, rows, bulimia, shattered dreams and how the music industry can leave even apparently successful stars penniless. The final episode, filmed live to a sold out crowd at London’s Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, will be aired on ITV2 next Thursday 27th March.
