East 17 to stay another night

The boy band revival is set to continue as East 17 and 911 join forces for a UK tour - which includes a Belfast date.

After ITV documentary The Truth About Boybands and the acclaimed return of Take That, the bad boys of pop, East 17 are back on the road.

The band, big in the 1990s, will team up with 911 and will be coming to the Waterfront Hall in Belfast on October 23.

At the peak of their success, East 17 - Brian Harvey, Terry Coldwell and John Hendy along with former member Tony Mortimer - sold more than 14 million records and had 20 top 20 singles.

The lads, from Walthamstow, east London, fused edgy pop with R&B and rap.

Along the way, East 17 enjoyed hits including Christmas number one Stay Another Day, high energy tracks Let it Rain and House of Love, and chilled-out track Been Around The World.

The group split in 1999, but got back together in 2006.
