We love the sentiment behind the new tour name.
S Club band member, Jo O’Meara, has explained the reason for the name change of the anticipated tour which kicks off this October in the UK and Ireland.
The new title, the ‘Good Times’ tour, is a nod to the band’s late friend and fellow bandmate, Paul Cattermole.
Paul sadly passed away at age 46 in April of this year from natural causes, specifically heart failure.
Speaking on BBC The One Show today, Jo explained that the tour was renamed in tribute to a song Paul was intended to sing on stage on the 25th anniversary tour, “It just seemed like the absolute perfect name to rename the whole show.”
“We want this show to be so uplifting, we want people to, sort of, like, go away and have a fantastic night. It’s an S Club Party. Apparently they’re ain’t one like it,” she continued.
The Good Times tour will see Jo, Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, Bradley MacIntosh, and Rachel Stevens reunite to bring back the musical nostalgia of the early 200s when the band, formerly known as S Club 7, were at their peak.
Hannah Spearitt will not rejoin with her colleagues for the reunion tour, bringing the original members down to five.
Confirming the news in May on Instagram, in a group video message, Jon explained, “Although Hannah will always be a part of S Club 7, she won’t be joining us on this tour. We wish her all the best for the future.”
This year, the group released their first song in 20 years called ‘These Are The Days,” which they dedicated to Paul.
This October 16th, there will be an S Club Party where the group will Bring It All Back for long-time and new fans at the 3 Arena.
