R 'n' B princesses Sugababes are coming to Ipswich in what promises to be a sell-out performance.
Tickets are on sale now to see the chart-topping sensations performing at the Ipswich Regent on March 24.
Sugababes Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena and, since 2001, Heidi Range have seen their sassy mix of pop, R 'n' B and garage vocals take them straight to the top.
Their recent Glastonbury performance and successful second album, Angels with Dirty Faces, has secured them a place in the league of high-profile pop acts.
The Ipswich Regent is over the moon that such a successful act is coming to Ipswich.
A spokeswoman said: "Sugababes are one of the bands of the moment so we are very excited that they are coming to Ipswich.

Sugababes' original band members Keisha, Mutya and Siobhan Donaghy first hit the charts aged just 16 with top ten single Overload.
But after their first debut, the teen pop princesses hit a low in 2001. The first album flopped, their record label dropped them and the band split as Siobhan edged towards Indie rock.
But the band has since found their feet, signing with Universal and taking on new band member Heidi, whose voice bowled over the others in a gruelling audition.
Since then the Sugababes have soared to the top with singles such as Round Round, Stronger and Freak Like Me.
They took to the Glastonbury for the first time ever in June, performing some of their hit singles on the Pyramid Stage.
Backstage, Keisha and Mutya also took pains to dismiss rumours of a rift between themselves and Heidi.
Their second album, first released last year, features more R'n' B and Hip Hop influences – and has flown off the shelves.
Fans were disappointed when the Sugababes announced that they would be postponing their November/December tour until March next year.
But the postponement means that an extra date has been added – at the Ipswich Regent in St Helen's Street.
The Ipswich venue has previously featured a line-up of top acts such as Blazin' Squad, Melanie C and Atomic Kitten.
The Sugababes performance will take place at the Ipswich Regent on Wednesday March 24. Tickets, priced £17.50, are on sale now from the Central Box Office, Princes Street on 01473 433100
