POPULAR boy band Blue will close out their 20th anniversary UK tour next year with a performance in Bournemouth.

Blue will perform at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) on Sunday October 2, 2022 as part of their Heart & Soul Tour – joined by fellow noughties band Atomic Kitten who are billed as “special guests”.

The announcement comes 20 years to the week that Blue released their number one debut album, All Rise.

All four original members – Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe – will reunite for the tour. The concerts will feature all the band’s hits from their five albums.

Blue said: “We can’t believe it’s been 20 years since All Rise was released. We have been planning this tour for a while and we promise you, we’ll be putting on the best show and making it a celebratory night you won’t forget.

“We have some surprises up our sleeve so stay tuned, 2022 is going to be a big one.”

Tickets, which go on sale Friday, are priced at £43 and £38 with a limited number of premium front tickets at £50.
