The bands taking part in the Big Reunion on ITV2 have announced that they will be hitting the road and touring the UK later this year.
90’s boy and girlbands 5ive, Atomic Kitten, B*witched, Liberty X, 911 and Honeyz have been starring in a new show for ITV2, which sees them taking a look back at their glory days, chronicling what was great about that period of their lives and subsequently, where it all went wrong.
The new series has enjoyed great ratings and after tickets for the hotly anticipated Hammersmith Apollo show sold out almost immediately, it was announced that the groups would be taking part in an arena tour which will kick off in May 2013.
The concerts will begin in Sheffield on 3rd May and visit 12 cities in total, ending at London’s O2 Arena on 14th May.

On other related news, ITV are reportedly planning to recommission the show for a second series and next year it will be a new bunch of stars regrouping for the show.
A source told The Daily Star:
“The Big Reunion has been a huge hit for ITV2.”
“It’s consistently pulling in over 1.3 million viewers each week so they would be mad not to recommission it.
“Nothing has been confirmed yet but options are certainly being discussed.”
