Fans who paid to see some members of S Club 7 play a concert were left bitterly disappointed after only one of them turned up to sing. Here's the band's recent reunion tour announcement, where all seven members will presumably turn up to perform.
The concert was set to take place at Wyld in Newport on the Isle of Wight, featuring two of the British pop band, Tina Barrett and Bradley McIntosh.
Tickets were priced at £23 each, with the 150 capacity venue selling out in an hour-and-a-half after going on sale.
Then, when the night finally rolled around, Tina didn’t turn up, leaving Bradley to get through the performance on his lonesome.
Apparently, the whole thing was just an unfortunate set of circumstances arising from contract obligations after the band – all seven of them, that is – recently announced that they’re going on a big 25th anniversary tour.
Anyway, the fans who did turn up weren’t too impressed, with some even saying that they feel for Bradley after he was left to steer the S Club Party all on his own.
"What a let down,” one said.
“Turned up to find out they can't perform as S Club as they've signed a contract and no Tina. “Happy to take everyone's money though."
Another said: “"What a disappointing night. I felt so bad for Bradley.”
A third wrote: “Absolutely raging!!
“Paid good money to see two members of S Club 7 and only one showed up.
“We weren't notified about this either.”
A spokesperson for the venue later confirmed that the whole thing was beyond their control, stating: “Sadly, this situation was out of our hands.”
The whole gang are set to perform 11 dates up and down the UK and Ireland for crowds of up to 20,000, celebrating their 25th anniversary.
The group – which consists of members Bradley, Tina, Hannah Spearritt, Jo O'Meara, Jon Lee, Paul Cattermole, and Rachel Stevens, released a statement that said: “After eight years it feels amazing to announce that we're reuniting and performing together again."
"We're so excited to bring the S Club Party back to our fans across the country to celebrate 25 years of S Club 7.
"We can't even believe it's been so long! Music and friendship have always been at the core of everything that we've ever done.
“We hope everyone can join us for one big party."
The tour was the idea of their manager Simon Fuller, who decided that the time was right and reached out to the band members, who admitted that they are all in the same WhatsApp group, to get them on board.
The S Club 7 Reunited Tour will start in October this year, taking in 11 arenas around the UK and Ireland, concluding at the O2 in London on October 28.
