S Club 3 to Play Festival Too 2009

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by RyanLansley, Apr 10, 2009.

  1. Festival Too is the largest free music festival in the whole of Europe and takes place every year in King's Lynn, my home town. An article today in our local newspaper announcing that S Club 3 will be performing. Not sure when but Beverly Knight is headlining so they will most likely play the weekend before the headliner (like Toyah Wilcocks did last year when Atomic Kitten headlined).

    I for one am excited. I laugh out loud at this because it is so hilarious. Here is the article:

    FESTIVAL Too has lined up another star-studded array of international and local acts to celebrate Lynn's free summer music extravaganza's 24th year.
    Headlining this year’s festival on the Tuesday Market Place on Saturday, July 11, will be English soul and R&B singer Beverley Knight.

    The exciting bill also includes Eric Faulkner’s Bay City Rollers, resurrecting the tartan-clad Rollermania days ADVERTISEMENTof the ’70s, and pop band S Club 3, featuring Jo O’Meara, Bradley McIntosh and Paul Cattermole from the original S Club 7.

    Tribute act Blondied, with lead singer Michelle Hendriks, returns to Festival Too by popular demand on Friday, July 3, faithfully recreating the sounds of Debbie Harry and Blondie.

    And another tribute band, Bon Giovi, appears the same night with its renditions of Bon Jovi chartbusters.

    U2UK, appearing on Friday, July 10, completes this year’s tribute acts, bringing the evocative songs of Irish supergroup U2 to the Tuesday Market Place.

    The Red Hot Soul Band open this year’s bonanza, with a performance in King’s Staithe Square on Saturday, June 28, to be followed by, weather permitting, the traditional fireworks display.

    This year’s line-up also features The Brink, winner of last year’s KL.FM Battle of the Bands, on Saturday, July 4, the runner-up and the winner of this year’s competition, on the second and third Saturday nights, respectively, and East Anglian rock group Boned on Friday, July 10.

    Beverley Knight (36), awarded an MBE in 2007 for services to British music and charity, started singing in clubs in her late teens and made her debut single, Flavour of the Old School, in 1995.

    Influenced by soul greats such as Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin, she is best known for her hit singles Greatest Day, Get Up!, Shoulda Woulda Coulda and Come As You Are. The most recent of her five studio albums to date was Music City Soul in 2007 and she has a sixth due out this summer.

    Beverley has performed with music legends like Stevie Wonder, Prince, George Benson, Chaka Khan, Bryan Adams and boyband Take That.

    Eric Faulkner’s Bay City Rollers will be entertaining the audience on July 4 with some of the 12 hits from their heyday, such as Shang A Lang, Bye Bye Baby, Give A Little Love, Keep On Dancing and Remember.

    Eric will be telling how it was at the height of Rollermania in the ’70s when fans turned out in tartan clothes and platform shoes to see their pop idols.

    S Club 3 got together again last year and on July 11 will be performing some of the best hits of the original seven-strong band that was founded by pop mogul Simon Fuller and split up in 2003. Their hits include Reach and Don’t Stop Movin’.

    Apart from the first Saturday night, all the music acts will appear in the Tuesday Market Place where many thousands of people have flocked to watch the free performances over the years.

    Festival Too has also lined up street entertainment, including clowns, magicians, puppets, jugglers, Punch and Judy and other musical attractions to entertain children (and adults!) throughout Lynn town centre during the day on Saturdays June 27, July 4 and July 11.

    That was a great night!
     
  4. Haha they're ACTUALLY called S Club 3? It really is tragic. It's somehow worse than Jo just singing the hits of S Club 7 by herself. It would somehow be more dignified.
     
  5. The press just called them S Club 3 and it stuck...It was S Club Party.
    There may be a bigger reunion on the cards but not for a while yet.
     
  6. Why is Paul back with the 'S Club' when he left in the first place?! Why did Paul become fat and leave S Club 7 - he was hot.
