80s girl group Bananarama have announced they will play in Nottingham as part of their first ever tour with all three original members.

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).

Speaking to The Sun, Dallin explained: "We first had a chat about it over Christmas and before we knew it the whole thing snowballed".

"I gave Siobhan a call, put the idea in her head and thought it was never going to happen, but what do you know, it did".

"It's pretty nerve wracking for me, it was 29 years ago that I left so I'm rusty to say the least".


Fahey commented: "These were my formative years".

She went on to form rival act Shakespeare's Sister, becoming embroiled in a bitter feud with her former bandmates.

Jacquie O'Sullivan stepped in as her replacement and re-recorded Fahey's vocals on a number of the band's hit tracks.

Fahey added: "I didn't say "yes" immediately".

"Emotionally it felt like something I needed to revisit, to go back to my roots and that time with my best friends".


At the height of their popularity, the group had 10 singles that made it into the top 10, including Love in the First Degree, Cruel Summer, Venus and Robert De Niro's Waiting.

The 15-date tour kicks off in Glasgow on November 12 and will travel the United Kingdom to finish in Southend on December 2.

However, they later scrapped the majority of the dates, blaming "unforeseen logistical circumstances".

'We're going to go back and celebrate that extraordinary life we led together in our twenties'.
