Bananarama Return to Tour for First Ever Time

The 80s pop trio may have scored 10 Top 10 hits during their heyday, but they never actually went out on a live tour…until now…

Is this the moment that Robert De Niro’s been waiting for? After their career was abruptly ended by an acrimonious split in 1988, the original line-up of 80’s girl band Bananarama are reuniting to go on their first ever live tour – a 15-date journey around the UK.

Sara Dallin, Siobhan Fahey and Keren Woodward were the biggest girl band of the 80s, scoring hits including Venus, Shy Boy and Love In The First Degree, before Fahey quit to form Shakespears Sister in 1988.

The three original members took to the waves on Chris Evans’ Radio 2 Breakfast Show to chat about the upcoming tour, which kicks off at Glasgow’s SEC on 12 November (tickets are on sale today for fan club members, and Wednesday for the general public).

"I was really touched because it wasn't for any other reason than we love each other and really loved what we did,” Fahey told Evans. "These were my formative years. I never thought it would happen again."

And Woodward even hinted that there might be a new piece of music coming for the band: "The tour is the main thing," she said. "But we have talked about doing a single together, which would be good."
