Girls Aloud Tribute Bands Are Back In The Limelight!

They are the most successful UK girl band ever, and now Girls Aloud have not only reformed but are thought to be due to release a brand new single!

Girls Aloud Tribute Band - Girls Alouder

Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts are now household names, but it was on 30th November back in 2002 that ITV1 talent show Popstars The Rivals formed the group and catapulted them to twenty consecutive top ten UK hits, 4 platinum albums, concert tours and numerous awards!  Now they're back with a teaser video of what is thought to be a new single and news of a special announcement on Friday 19th October 2012 on the official Girls Aloud website!

Already the enquiries have resurged for the Girls Aloud Tribute Bands, Girls Alouder, Girls B Loud, Girls R Aloud and Girls Out Loud, who will be all too keen to add any new single to their repertoire.  The question though is how will this affect the enquiries and subsequent bookings for these Girls Aloud tributes?  Well it really does depend on a few factors:  how popular will a new single be; will there be an album;  will there be a tour; and subsequently how popular will a possible album and tour be with not only the public, but also the general press and industry critics as a whole?  I suppose we'll all just have to wait until this Friday to begin to find out, but if Cheryl Cole's new autobiography is anything to go by then we may be hearing of a greatest hits collection and a final headline tour!!

The Greatest Take That Tribute Band perform in Bahrain!

A sensational night was had by all in the searing heat in Bahrain as The Greatest Take That Tribute Band flew 4000 miles, courtesy of sponsors British Airways to perform at The British Club in Manama!
The show, which took place at the beginning of May 2012 was a special outdoor 'Take That' tribute night concert for members and guests held in the venues grounds.  The Greatest were chosen above all other Take That tribute acts to perform due to their uncanny & unrivalled soundalike ability and because of the inclusion of Matthew Holbrook (aka Millennium) the No.1 Robbie Williams tribute act within The Greatest's 2 hour Take That tribute show.  Matthew had previously performed in Bahrain in November 2009, which culminated in him jumping from the stage into the pool at the end of his show!  Funnily enough everyone remembered him!
"What a trip!  What a night!  What a show!"  Were the comments from The Greatest boys, but what they forgot to mention was the 'No need to Relight Your Fire' heat at 44°C heat (108F), which made for a very interesting sound check during the afternoon and a sweltering show at night!
Things are also hotting up for The Greatest Take That Tribute Band internationally as corporate demand for the show is growing worldwide.  With Germany, Scotland, Wales and now Bahrain, plus with Italy, Spain, and Malta to come in August this year, The Greatest have confirmed themselves as the first truly 'International' corporate Take That Tribute Band!
The Greatest even caught the attention of the Bahrain press with an article in the Gulf Daily News newspaper and due to the success of the show a rebooking is already in the pipeline!
The Greatest wish to thank once again the official sponsors British Airways, and especially The British Club for everything, they hope to see you all again very soon!
To see pictures of the whole trip in Bahrain see The Greatest Take That Tribute Bands Photo Gallery page

It's double vision for The Wanted Tribute Bands!

The Wanted Tribute Band - Most Wanted
Normally it takes a while before a new band such as The Wanted has it's first tribute band to them, but in The Wanted's case they seem to be breaking the mold for just about everything!
As The Wanted tour sell out arena's in the UK and appear on US TV shows such as 'Ellen', it would appear their appeal is twice that of any other boy band!  So much so, they now have not one, but two tribute bands to them!
The two 'The Wanted Tribute Bands' follow in the tradition of naming tribute bands to mirror their idols, in this case NOT WANTED and MOST WANTED!  As exptected these Wanted tribute shows cover all of the hits of Max, Tom, Siva, Jay, & Nathan, and you can check out all of their details on their StarBookers website page.
The Wanted Tribute Band - Not Wanted
At the time of posting this blog The Wanted had reached a staggering No.2 in the US itunes chart with their hit 'Glad You Came', and described their US success as 'surreal'!  Unprecedented for a British Boy Band and making history! 
Could this be the beginning of one of the biggest bands ever, and with it a cavalcade of tribute acts to follow in their wake?  
Only time will tell - so watch this 'StarBookers' space!

To book one of our Wanted tribute bands call StarBookers today on 0845 680 5056
Tip:  If you like tribute bands to The Wanted then you may also be interested in other similar boy band tribute acts, such as:  JLS tribute bands, One Direction tribute bands, Take That Tribute Bands, Westlife tribute bands, Boy Band tribute bands

Michael Jackson Tribute jailed for fraud!

The Mail Online headline of 'Not Such A Smooth Criminal' was not only hilarious but quite apt for a very serious offence that took place by Emerson a Michael Jackson Tribute Act who had been working throughout the UK and abroad over the past few years. 

Smooth Criminal receives jail sentence!

Emerson (real name Amar Clement) was convicted of fraud at Oxford Crown Court after stealing £75,000 from Natwest bank customers in 101 fraudulent transactions. 
When not working as a Michael Jackson tribute Emerson aka Amar Clement worked as a customer services officer at a branch of Natwest, where he used the bank's computer system to access account holders details.
Judge Patrick Eccles jailed Emerson for 18 months describing the crime as a 'carefully organised and sophisticated fraud'.
