Back in April we reported that legendary band, The Corrs, were planning a comeback. Well, today is that day!
The Dundalk family band have confirmed that they have reformed and will play their first live show in 10 years in London later this year.
They will play BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park on September 13.
Speaking on Chris Evans’ show on BBC Radio 2, lead singer Andrea Corr said: “We’re in the process of making a new record, so it feels just right to do this. It’s exciting.
“We emerged after our lives going in different directions – babies and all stuff.”
The group, who is made up of siblings Andrea, Sharon, Caroline and Jim, broke up in 2006 after fifteen years of national and worldwide success. Andrea was reported to have written a new song this year with the intention of giving it away to another musician.
“When she played it to friends, they told her she would be crazy to give it away to another artist,” a source said.
Now that that the trad/pop band, who are considered to be the greatest Irish musical act after U2, have hit the studio once more, fans are guaranteed a new wave of hits to join the likes of ‘Breathless’, ‘So Young’ and ‘Runaway’ upping the sales of 45 million record sales already under their belt.
In 2009, we got a hint that a reunion was on the cards when Jim commented that more music was definitely in the future;
“I’m sure that some time in the future, when the time is right, The Corrs will get back together.”
