Snap Scene: Bananarama – The Forum, 22nd Feb 2019

With a slew of hits to their name, including ‘Shy Boy’, ‘Cruel Summer’, ‘Robert De Niro’s Waiting’ and the eternally iconic ‘Venus’, it’s no wonder they’re the most successful female band ever, with the most charting singles in the world.

Childhood friends Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward came up through the London punk scene, starting out as backing vocalists before joining forces with Siobhan Fahey and starting to write songs and perform with their friends’ bands.

Now, nearly 10 years after the release of their last album Viva and three years since their last performance on our shores, the iconic duo will be coming back to Australian shores. Currently working on their 11th studio album, they’ve also been busy performing in sold-out venues across the UK and Europe, including a one-off run of UK reunion shows with former bandmate Siobhan Fahey.
