POP lovers have been pouncing on the chance to see their favourite band perform live in Ipswich and next year's Atomic Kitten concert is already nearly sold out.

POP lovers have been pouncing on the chance to see their favourite band perform live in Ipswich and next year's Atomic Kitten concert is already nearly sold out.

The majority of tickets for the trio's March 11 appearance at the Regent were sold within the first 24 hours of them going on sale at the box office and now only a few seats remain.

Anyone wanting the opportunity to see the purr-fect Liverpudlian threesome should do so quickly before the "sold out" sign goes up.

The past 12 months have been exciting for Atomic Kitten.

When Kerry Katona fell pregnant and left the band, former Precious member Jenny Frost stepped in to join Liz McLarnon and Natasha Hamilton in completing the line up.

At the same time the band's smash hit Whole Again hit the top spot in the singles chart and stayed there for a few weeks.

The follow-up single, a cover of The Bangles track Eternal Flame, repeated the success while their debut album, which was re-released when Jenny joined the band, also enjoyed huge sales.

To date it has sold 300,000 copies and also achieved the number one position in the charts.

And the Atomic Kitten run of success shows no sign of slowing down.

Their first video, The Story So Far, was released on Monday and a new single, You Are, is not far away.

More importantly, their ability to come close to selling out their concert at Ipswich Regent in so little time is a clear sign that Atomic Kitten are one of today's hottest pop properties.

N In some editions of the Evening Star on Tuesday we said tickets for the Atomic Kitten concert did not go on sale until Thursday when in fact they were on sale on Wednesday. This was as a result of information received from the concert's promoters who said that no tickets could be bought until yesterday morning. We apologise for this incorrect information and any problems it may have caused.
