We wanted more, more, more so original 1980s legends Bananarama have reformed and are heading to the Ipswich Regent.

Sara Dallin, Siobhan Fahey and Keren Woodward shot to fame in 1982 with It Ain’t What You Do, followed by hits like Really Saying Something, Cruel Summer and Robert de Niro’s Waiting.

They had 28 singles in the top 50 from 1982-2009, selling 40million records by 2002.

Fahey left the group in 1988 to form Shakespears Sister. She was replaced by Jacquie O’Sullivan, with Dallin and Woodward later carrying on as a duo so it’ll be the first time the original trio has ever toured.

“We’ll be performing all the hits and some surprises too, I really can’t wait it’s gonna be an amazing party every night,” said Woodward.

The Regent’s Mark Whiting added: “This is going to be a brilliant concert. Bananarama had hit after hit in the 1980s. I think tickets are going to fly for this one so my advice is don’t miss out and get yours early.”

Tickets for the Friday, December 1, concert go on pre-sale to Regent subscribers from 10am tomorrow and then on general sale Wednesday from 10am.
