Bananarama announces first U.S. tour

Exactly thirty years in the making, British pop powerhouse Bananarama touch down in 2018 for their first four dates in North America, as the original lineup – Sara Dallin, Keren Woodward, and Siobhan Fahey.

Cited in the Guinness Book of Records as “the most successful girl group of all-time” – for achieving more hit singles than any female band in historyBananarama forever changed the face of pop music worldwide. To date, combined sales exceed 40 million and counting.

Bananarama’s tour marks an important first for the trio. Fahey amicably split from the group back in 1988 – 30 years to the date of the coming tour. Even though Dallin and Woodward carried on as Bananarama, performed around the globe, and released six albums, they never properly toured in their initial incarnation with Fahey. That changes in 2018.

This reunion celebrates their enduring legacy as a three-piece and the seminal albums they recorded together such as Bananarama [1984], True Confessions [1986], and Wow! [1987]. Expect to hear renditions of era-defining singles, including “Venus”, “I Heard A Rumour”, “Cruel Summer”, and more.

Tickets for Bananarama’s original line-up U.S. tour go on-sale Friday, October 13. Additional tour dates may be added.

Feb. 20 – Los Angeles, CA – The Novo
Feb. 21 – San Francisco, CA – Warfield Theater
