The Big Reunion is back on ITV2 - acts that dominated the UK pop agenda from the mid nineties, selling millions of singles and albums, collectively achieving 57 top ten hits and nine number 1's - are making their return to pop life.
Eternal, A1, Damage, 3T, Girl Thing and newly formed pop "super-group" 5th Story (compromising solo artists Gareth Gates, Adam Rickitt and Kavana, along with Another Level's Dane Bowers and Blazin Squad's Kenzie) will relive the memories and return to the stage once more at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith on February 21st.
Coinciding with the hit ITV2 series will be the companion album, The Big Reunion 2014 released March 3rd. With all the hits including from Eternal (Stay, Power Of A Woman), A1 (Take On Me, Same Old Brand New You), Damage (Wonderful Tonight, Forever), 3T (I Need You, Anything), Girl Thing (Last One Standing, Girls On Top), and 5th Story (new recordings of their collective songs including Flip Reverse/ Crossroads, I Breathe Again), this is THE crucial collection to relive those hedonistic days of pure unadulterated pop.
The album also comes with a bonus disc of hits from The Big Reunion 2013 - From Five's 'Everybody Get Up' to Liberty X 'Got To Have Your Love', to Atomic Kitten's 'Whole Again', it's another chance to relive the epic first series. A standard edition of The Big Reunion 2014 album is available digitally only.
From BRITS to brawls, awards to arrests, platinum discs to debts, for some it's another chance for success, for others it will open old wounds as they prepare to face demons they thought they had buried forever. Whatever the story, the hits remain the same.
