Bananarama Will Be Touring the U.S. for the First Time

People who remember Bananarama might be interested to learn that the British pop band is planning a world tour with Sara Dallin, Siobhan Fahey, and Keren Woodward. Since Fahey missed out on the previous world tour, this means that this will be the first time that the full membership of Bananarama will be touring the United States. Something that should come as welcome news to those who remember the 80s with fondness.

Who Are Bananarama?

For those who are unfamiliar with Bananarama, it was a British pop band that found a fair measure of success in not just the United Kingdom but also in other countries situated all around the world. For proof, look no further than the fact that they are included in The Guinness Book of Records for being the all-female music group with the most chart entries to their credit, which is a remarkable achievement by any measurement of accomplishment.

Regardless, it is interesting to note that the trio started up Bananarama as an extension of their friendship. First, Dallin and Woodward had been best friends since childhood and have managed to remain best friends since that time. Second, Dallin befriended Fahey at the London College of Fashion, where their radical choice of clothing caused them to stand out compared to their peers. As a result, the trio ended up living together in the space above a rehearsal room, where they went on to record their demo. Said demo proved to be a hit with certain crowds, thus paving the way for the rest of Bananarama’s music as well as the rest of Bananarama’s successes.

Unfortunately, there came a time when Fahey felt that she was being left out by the other two members of Bananarama because they had been friends with one another long before they had become friends with her. This was not helped by the fact that Fahey was not feeling great about the musical direction that the pop band had been going, with the result that she left in order to form Shakespears Sister in 1988. For a time, she was replaced by Jacquie O’Sullivan when Bananarama went on their world tour in 1991, but there can be no doubt about the fact that the resulting trio was not quite the same as what had preceded it.

Why Now?

With that said, it is interesting to note that the relationship between the initial trio who made up Bananarama does not seem to have been strained too much by what had happened with Fahey. After all, it turned out that the trio still spent time with one another, as shown by the fact that they were in Fahey’s kitchen when Woodward thought that it would be nice to have another world tour. This was because she thought it was a real shame that Fahey had missed out on the experience of seeing their fans express their fondness of Bananarama.

As a result, the idea for the new world tour was hatched, with the result that the members of the pop band are now rehearsing in preparation for the start of their tour in November and December. Simply put, this is a chance for interested individuals in the United States to see what Bananarama is like with the initial trio, meaning that they might want to hurry, particularly since the pop band has plenty of other fans who are interested in the same opportunities.
