Artist: S Club 7
Venue: BIC Bournemouth
On Monday night at the BIC Arena in Bournemouth 90s kids dreams were made when S Club 7 took to the stage to perform some of their best known tracks.
A night of nostalgia began as soon as the band stepped onto the stage to tremendous cheers from the audience.
Looking no different,aside from a being grown up,the band sang with as much ease as they did before they split 15 years ago.
Opening their set with Bring the House Down the crowd sang back every word like they did when they used to dance around their rooms when they were growing up. (You all did it so don’t admit you didn’t). What a great time growing up in the 90s was.
As the show went on and each of their classics were played out-S Club Party,You’re My Number 1 and Two in a Million,it was clear the audience and indeed the band were in as good a shape as they used to be. The energy in the arena was contagious.
Each band member treated the audience to solo performances half way through the show. Tina with Stronger and Jon and Jo with Hello Friend. It was Paul that received the most applause however with his acoustic version of Reach,which the crowd sang back with such certainty.
Rachel then took the stage to sing a mix of her solo songs Some Girls and Sweet Dreams my La Ex before they jumped straight into the hits Bring it All Back and Viva La Fiesta.
The most applause and singing came near the end of the set when they surprised the audience with a cover of Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk. This got the audience dancing and exceptionally excited before the banded ended their set with much loved songs Reach and Don’t Stop Movin’.
Overall this concert was an absolute delight to witness. Seeing a band like S Club 7 live brought back all the 90s nostalgia,proving that even after 15 years away they can still sell out arenas and put on one big S Club Party .
