Record-breaking trio have never before toured in their original form
They were one of the defining acts of the 1980s, and now Bananarama are back in their original form for a one-off tour of the UK this November and December, with tickets going sale on Wed 26 Apr at 9am.
The group comprised of Sara Dallin, Keren Woodward and Siobhan Fahey - recorded some of the most memorable singles of the decade, with tracks like 'It Ain't What You Do', 'Really Saying Something' and 'Shy Boy' proving that a catchy pop song will always have real staying power.
Amazingly, the group have never before toured together as a trio, but have decided to right that wrong, and relive the magic of their glory years, much to the delight of fans up and down the country.
'We'll be performing all the hits and some surprises too, I really can't wait it's gonna be an amazing party every night!' said Keren.
'These were my formative years,' added Siobhan, who also had chart success as part of Shakespeare's Sister. 'I never thought it would happen again. It's like going back down the road to find a piece of myself that I left back then. The older I get, the more I realise it was pretty magical.'
