All my childhood dreams came true last night when S Club reunited to perform at Halo, a nightclub near my uni. I’ll admit, there was only three of them (Jo O’Meara, Bradley McIntosh and Paul Cattermole) but that was enough for me. I could barely contain my excitement as I danced around to the likes of ‘Don’t Stop Moving’ and ‘Bring It All Back‘.
S Club 3 so the former pop stars call themselves now, reformed when they realised their classic songs are still stuck in everyones head and sure enough, they are right! They embarked on a tour around universities and nightclubs to bring students back to their childhood for a night and I’m bloody glad they did.
The trio opened with their classic hit ‘Reach’ and were thankfully still pretty good at singing. Unsurprisingly they have aged and their appearance has changed, with Jo opting for bright red hair and both Bradley and Paul have gained weight so they didn’t look like the fresh, young stars that we remember. I’ll hand it to them though, they danced around the stage with as much enthusiasm as they used to and I honestly had one of the best nights I’ve had so far at uni. I sang (or was shrieking if you will) along to every song like a 10 year old girl at a Bieber concert.
Their set list included:
- Bring It All Back
- Never Had a Dream Come True
- Don’t Stop Movin’
- S Club Party
My friends and I even managed to blag our way up to VIP to meet them – the best part being that I got a selfie with Bradley and he even asked for my friends number but she politely declined – mainly because he is 32 now *gasps*. The young me would have been so proud.
So all in all, the night was as good (if not better) as I expected it to be and brought me right back to my 7 year old self.
Can S Club still throw an S Club party? They certainly can.
