O-Town announce their first comeback date in London

We know you're excited for this one... the reformed boyband are hitting the capital...

Just last week, hit 00s boy band O-Town announced they were reforming and working on new material as a group, and now they've announced their first UK show date in more than ten years, on 13 June.

O-Town, who found fame on reality TV show Making The Band became a global sensation, spurning pop hits such as Liquid Dream and All or Nothing.

The boys have today announced that they will be playing an intimate gig at Under The Bridge in London this summer. “Timing is everything,” they said, “and after ten years, I feel this is the right time”. The group admitted that life after the spotlight was hard and that the thought of returning to music is daunting.

“The industry has changed so much, the world has changed so much”, they admited.

The group, consisting of members Erik-Michael, Jacob, Trevor and Dan will be reforming without original member Ashley Parker Angel, but have revealed they feel like a new band, not a returning one. “We were started on a television show, and that obviously sets up a weird catapult platform”, they admitted, but followed this by saying that it’s now just them with no big managers watching over or controlling them.

Following the success of boy band reformations such as New Kids on The Block, Backstreet Boys and Take That, O-Town should follow suit in causing quite a stir. They've already said that they ultimately just want to “make people smile, make people feel good with our music”, and are particularly excited to do so in London, a place they feel “really embraced” O-Town.

Tickets for their London date at Under The Bridge are priced £20. Click here for more.
