One of the UK’s most exciting and successful boy bands are back! To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Blue have announced today their Heart & Soul Tour with a date at Aberdeen’s P&J Live on Wednesday 21st September 2022.
Blue will play 14 arena shows around the UK and tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am. Blue will be joined on tour by Atomic Kitten, who will be very special guests at every date.
The announcement for the Heart & Soul Tour comes 20 years to the week that Blue released their smash hit #1 debut album, All Rise. The album which was released 20 years ago this week, went on to sell over 1.4 million copies in the UK alone and was certified 4x Platinum. The tour sees all four original members – Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe – reunite for a fun-filled epic show. The concert will feature all the band’s hits from their 5 albums as well as some incredible surprises. The tour also marks the first time that the Atomic Kitten line up of Jenny Frost, Liz McClarnon and Natasha Hamilton will perform together in over a decade.
Speaking of the tour, Blue added: “We can’t believe it’s been 20 years since All Rise, our debut album, was released. It’s been quite the ride since then and now we have so much to look forward to as we go into our third decade! We had a lot of time in lock down to reconnect as friends and we started thinking how we could celebrate the anniversary. The four of us started working on new music and it felt so good to be back doing what we love again. This time off during the pandemic also made us realise how much we missed performing live. We can’t wait to get back on the road and see all of you at our Heart & Soul Tour. We have been planning this tour for a while and we promise you, we’ll be putting on the best show and making it a celebratory night you won’t forget! We have some surprises up our sleeve for the 20th anniversary so stay tuned, 2022 is going to be a big one!”
Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions & Marketing at P&J Live said: “Loved as one of the UK’s biggest boy bands, we know that Blue will be welcomed to the stage in Aberdeen with rapturous applause. From all-time favourites like ‘one love’ and the epic collaboration with Sir Elton John, ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’, we know they will put on a fantastic show and a fitting tribute to their 20 years in the business.”
Blue are one of the most successful British bands and have sold over 16 million albums worldwide including 3.6 million albums and 1.4 million singles in the UK. Their first 3 albums all topped the Official Album Chart and the group have worked with a variety of legends including Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Lil’ Kim.
