A 15-date UK tour is reuniting Bananarama for the first time since 1988

Bananarama is reuniting for a 15-date UK tour
Bananarama started in London, in 1979. In 2017 the original members are heading out on tour!
Bananarama last performed together at the Brit Awards in 1988, before petty squabbles caused Siobhan Fahey to quit, but Venus, and other hits, were not forgotten. Rumors say the eighties trio have put their differences aside and Siobhan will be joined Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin on this brief UK tour.

Their 15-date UK tour kicks off in Glasgow on November 12, and will end in Southend on December 2. While many bands I grew up with have forged onward all these years, It's interesting that Bananarama have been apart so long, yet are venturing onto a tour bringing them back to their roots in the 80's. I hope if goes well, stokes all involved and leads to an new album!

Bananarama sold more than 40 million songs worldwide and made it into the Guinness Book Of Records as the most successful female group of all time on account of the fact they'd had more hit singles than any other girl band.

I hope if goes well, stokes all involved, and leads to an new album!
