Fun Girl Three: Bananarama to Reunite

Fans of eighties pop, rejoice! 29 years after they split up, Bananarama is set to reunite. The original line-up of Keren Woodward, Sara Dallin and Siobhan Fahey, (who left to form Shakespears Sister) will be giving their fans exactly what they want with Venus, Robert De Niro’s Waiting and Cruel Summer doubtless on the playlist. It promises to be huge fun.

The great thing about Bananarama was their girl-next-door appeal. Part of the Band Aid single ‘Do they Know It’s Christmas?’ they arrived to record their vocals by taxi while other stars came by limo. They wore what young women wore on the streets, resisting the more polished look sported by other female stars; no mean feat in an image-dominated industry like pop. Witty lyrics, catchy tunes and their DIY attitude made them the queens of pop for a while, selling 40 million records at the height of their fame. They’ll be touring the UK in November and December. Time to get your ra-ra skirts out.

Tickets for Bananarama’s tour go on sale on Wednesday 26 April at 9am from
