Top 5 boy bands on tour in 2015
24 Dec 2014
It’s the year of the boy bands with the world’s greatest going on tour around the UK and Ireland. Read on to see who you shouldn’t be missing in 2015.
1) One Direction
Boy bands can’t be discussed unless we mention this one. One Direction rose to fame on The X Factor after auditioning as solo artists and finding they were better as a group. In just four years the band have released four albums (three UK No.1s, four US No.1s) and have embarked on a stadium world tour. Not many bands can say that. The group are back in the UK and Ireland during June, September and October.
2) Take That
They were the ones who started the craze in the first place. Now, maybe not a boy band per se, but still one of the biggest groups around the world. The now trio – Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald – will take their first album as a three-piece, III, on the road from April to June stopping in the likes of London, Sheffield and Newcastle.
A supergroup boy band. The biggest groups of the noughties, McFly and Busted, first joined forces in 2013. Following a mammoth 35-date tour, they’re back with their first album together and will head out on their second tour of the UK and Ireland during spring 2015. Expect out-of-this world stage productions, McFly and Busted hits, and tracks from their brand new self-titled album.
4) 5 Seconds of Summer
After keeping stadiums entertained when they supported One Direction on their Where We Are tour, the Aussie boys will embark on their first headline tour of the UK and Ireland during summer 2015. They’ll be playing their biggest hits – from Good Girls to She Looks So Perfect – in arenas around the country.
5) The Vamps
Despite only forming in 2012, The Vamps already have a string of catchy hits to their name from Can We Dance to Wild Heart and Last Night. The group will be taking over arenas for the first time from April to May 2015. And if that isn’t enough, The Vamps will be supported by another of Britain’s most loved boy bands, Union J.
