THE girl group who defined the 80s are bringing their original, record-breaking line up to the Midlands.

This will be the first time Sara Dallin, Keren Woodward and Siobhan Fahey have ever toured together as Bananrama with the 15-date UK tour arriving into the Birmingham Arena on Thursday, November 23.

Since their last performance as a trio on The Brits in 1988, Keren and Sara continued as Bananarama, releasing records and touring to global audiences. Siobhan went on to have hit singles and albums around the world as part of Shakespears Sister, before becoming a solo artist.

“Keren and I have toured as a duo for years, but we never toured or played live with Siobhan,” Sara said. “We’ve been talking about this idea for a while and now the moment has finally arrived it’s incredibly exciting.

“Lots of fans have often asked ‘please just do one tour with Siobhan,' so now their wishes have come true.”

Keren said: “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.”

“These were my formative years,” adds Siobhan. “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.”

Bananarama made it into the ‘Guinness Book of Records’ as the most successful female group of all time and to date have had 30 chart hits and combined record sales of more than 40 million.
