The Nolans to reunite for UK tour


The Nolans perform I'm In The Mood For Dancing in 1979

1970s girl band the Nolans are reforming for a 15-date tour of the UK, they have revealed.

Four of the six singing sisters, best known for I'm In The Mood For Dancing - a number three hit in December 1979 - will perform in the concerts.

Coleen, 44, who appears on ITV1's Loose Women, told GMTV: "We want to say you are never too old to do this - it's a real girls' night."

She will be joined on tour by Bernie, 48, Linda, 50, and Maureen, 55.

'Right time'

The group, who performed with a number of different line-ups, will start their tour at the Nottingham Royal Concert Hall on 11 October, ending on 10 November at Belfast's Odyssey arena.

Coleen Nolan said: "We've been approached before over the last four or five years but it has never felt like the right time and the right people being involved.

"This time it was like, 'let's just do it once more'," she added.

The group, who first shot to fame with their 1978 covers album 20 Giant Hits, were originally called The Nolan Sisters before changing their name in 1980.

The sisters also enjoyed success in Japan where I'm In The Mood For Dancing was a number one hit.

Their 1980 album Making Waves, a number 11 hit in the UK, hit the top spot in Japan.
