After Olympic shows and a US tour, the girl band with the most chart entries in history celebrate their 30th anniversary. Their hits include Robert De Niro’s Waiting, Love In The First Degree and Venus.


The most consistently successful British female group in pop history, Bananarama formed after providing backing vocals for It Ain't What You Do, It's The Way That You Do It. By 1988 the girls had broken the record for all-female groups with the most chart entries in history - a record they still hold.

Early top 10 hits included Shy Boy, Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye, Cruel Summer and Robert De Niro's Waiting. The girls then teamed up with Stock, Aitken & Waterman to cover Venus, which reached No.1 in the US charts. Their biggest UK hit followed, with Love In The First Degree.

After a brief reunion in 1998 to record a cover version of ABBA’s Waterloo, two of the original members have gone on to record further albums. Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward joined the Here & Now Tour in 2007 and continue to play their greatest hits around the UK. They perform to playback with five dancers.
