BOYBAND Blue will celebrate their 20th anniversary in Glasgow next year with a show at the Hydro.

The four-piece - including Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe - first shot the fame in 2001 with their debut single All Rise.

Now the band will perform a show as part of the Heart & Soul Tour at the Finnieston venue on September 19 with girl group Atomic Kitten supporting.

The tour marks the first time that the Atomic Kitten line up of Jenny Frost, Liz McClarnon and Natasha Hamilton will perform together in over a decade.

In a statement, Blue said: "We can’t believe it’s been 20 years since All Rise, our debut album, was released.

"It’s been quite the ride since then and now we have so much to look forward to as we go into our third decade!

"We had a lot of time in lock down to reconnect as friends and we started thinking how we could celebrate the anniversary.

"The four of us started working on new music and it felt so good to be back doing what we love again.

"This time off during the pandemic also made us realise how much we missed performing live.

"We can’t wait to get back on the road and see all of you at our Heart & Soul Tour.

"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 for the 20th anniversary so stay tuned, 2022 is going to be a big one!”
