Gareth Gates: 3T in for shock on Big Reunion tour
Gareth Gates says well-spoken American band 3T are in for a shock when they join rowdy British groups Blue and 5ive on The Big Reunion - The Boy Band Tour later this year
Gareth Gates worries 'The Big Reunion' boy bands may corrupt 3T.
The American group - which consists of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson's nephews Taj, Taryll and TJ - will tour the UK later this year with British bands such as Blue, 5ive, Damage and more, and 5th Story star Gareth admits it will be a culture shock for the well-spoken Americans to share a tour bus with the rowdy Brit bands.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'm a little bit worried about them being on this tour. They're very ... no drinking, no swearing, no anything. They're going to get a real shocker!"
5ive's Sean Conlon added: "It might be a culture clash."
Quizzed if the British bands may "corrupt" their American counterparts, Blue's Antony Costa quipped: "I hope not, you can't corrupt a Jackson!"
Meanwhile, Antony admits he can't wait to meet 3T so he can pick their brains for stories about their legendary uncle.
He said: "I just want to sit there and listen to stories. I know it's really sad, but you've got to ask ... it'll be really hard not to, especially two weeks on the road."
With numerous boy bands sharing a tour bus, Sean is eager to avoid ego clashes and admits he is often surprised by how humble other stars can be.
He explained: "One thing I've learned from the last 'Big Reunion' tour, you can't judge a book by its cover. Duncan from Blue, I didn't think I'd get on with him. He was looking at me like I'm an alien, I thought he was an alien, but two or three days in, we really clicked."
The Big Reunion - The Boy Band Tour will travel across Britain in October and November. Tickets are on sale now.
