Wildly popular British pop duo Bananarama will touch down in Australia in February 2019 for a series of shows. With a slew of hits to their name, including Shy Boy, Cruel Summer, Robert De Niro’s Waiting and the eternally iconic Venus, it’s no wonder they’re the most successful female band ever, with the most charting singles in the world. The band’s 1987 album WOW debuted at number one on the ARIA Album Chart, and featured the smash hits I Heard A Rumor, Love In The First Degree, I Can’t Help It and Venus, cementing them as instant legends. 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. Sweetening the deal is special guest Tiffany, whose tracks I Think We’re Alone Now and Could’ve Been catapulted her to pop stardom. Also on the bill will be German diva Amber, whose solo hits include This Is Your Night, and Sexual (Li Da Di). Bananarama are absolute ‘80s royalty. These shows are unmissable, so grab tickets before they disappear!

“[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
