Frontier Touring and Arena Touring are ecstatic to announce that wildly popular British pop duo Bananarama will touch down in Australia in February 2019 for a series of shows. Fresh from this year’s Reunion Tour, they will perform sets for fans in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and the Gold Coast. Also appearing at all shows will be Tiffany and Amber.
Childhood friends Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward came up through the London punk scene, starting out as backing vocalists before joining forces with Siobhan Fahey and starting to write songs and perform with their friends’ bands.
“Growing up, Sara and I sang in school musicals together. And when we formed Bananarama I never thought we’d make a career out of it” – Keren Woodward
“‘Venus’ was such a massive hit for us. Everyone we talk to has a fond memory of those times. We had no idea we were creating this strong foundation in America.” – Sara Dallin
Now, nearly 10 years after the release of their last album Viva and three years since their last performance on our shores, the iconic duo will be coming back to Australia. Currently working on their 11th studio album, they’ve also been busy performing in sold-out venues across the UK and Europe, including a one-off run of UK reunion shows with former bandmate Siobhan Fahey.
‘[An] all-killer-no-filler pop carnival, a masterclass in how to effectively present a heritage act.’ – The Guardian
‘[Bananarama] lit up the Warfield. They were choreographed, in sync, beaming, and wearing just the right amount of sparkle. Their hallmark vocals were flawless, as though no time had passed.’ – The Bay Bridged
Sweetening the deal is special guest Tiffany, whose tracks ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ and‘Could’ve Been’ catapulted her to pop stardom. Now based in Nashville, she continues to write and release music, including her most recent album A Million Miles. With her debut album, she became the youngest female artist to top the Billboard charts, and her legacy continues on this historic Bananarama tour.
Bananarama are absolute ‘80s royalty. These shows are unmissable, so grab tickets before they disappear!
