The craze these days seems to be that a pop band should split up, and then a few years down the line come back. Take That did it, the Spice Girls did it, and it seems like S Club 7 are looking set to follow in their footsteps.
The 7 early 30 stars are planning on returning next spring for a 10th year anniversary. The band, which is currently touring with only 3 members, is set to perform across the UK as part of a comeback tour.
However, even though the band is called S Club 7, it'll only be 5 of the members performing on the tour, unless members Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens change their mind, and decide to join them on the tour.
A source to the band said, "Rachel and Hannah have refused to join the band on their comeback tour as they believe S Club has now ended, and with them enjoying success on television, they feel it isn’t the right time to tour.
The others (Jo, Tina, Paul, Jon, and Bradley) have all signed a contract which will see them tour across the UK next May-June time on a comeback tour, which will see them headline in London, Manchester, etc.
The only date confirmed at the moment is at London's Hammersmith Apollo on the 12th June 2009. Even though they aren’t performing in arenas like in the past, the band can't wait to see all their old fans."
S Club 7, or should that be S Club 5, are also set to release, Ain't No Party: The Ultimate Collection of S Club 7, on the 25th May 2009.
