Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) are pleased to announce that The Big Reunion is set to return to the GE Oil & Gas Arena this year, bringing the Boy Band Tour to Aberdeen on Wednesday 29th October 2014.
Following on from 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, 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, including a sold-out date at the GE Oil & Gas Arena.
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.
The latest series has documented exclusive and explosive accounts from former pop heroes, with revelations about drugs, fisticuffs, rows, bulimia, shattered dreams and how the music industry can leave even apparently successful stars penniless. The final episode, filmed live to a sold out crowd at London’s Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, will be aired on ITV2 next Thursday 27th March.
Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director says, “After a sell-out show in 2013, we are sure many fans will be delighted to hear that The Big Reunion is returning to the GE Oil & Gas Arena as part of our Autumn/Winter line-up. This concert follows hot-on-the-heels of two nights of the fantastically funny Lee Evans!”
