Following the success of The Big Reunion on ITV2, ITV and partners Live Nation have announced the launch of The Big Reunion Boy Band Tour. The acts will be heading to UK arenas again this October for a 13 date tour including a return to the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Thursday 30th October 2014, this time bringing along the seven boy bands from both series – Five, Blue, 911, (from 2013 series) plus A1, Damage, 3T and the recently formed 5th Story featuring Gareth Gates, Dane Bowers, Adam Rickitt, Kavana, Kenzie (from 2014 series).
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 & 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.
