BACK TOGETHER: The So Solid crew
THE SO Solid Crew have announced that they will return to the stage, in their entirety, after nearly a decade out of the limelight.
The south London garage collective, who rose to fame in the late 90s and following the release of number one hit 21 Seconds will kick of their reunion tour at east London’s IndigO2 on March 21.
Founding member, Megaman, confirmed the news via his Twitter page earlier today, writing:
“21.3.13 #WeBeginThings Tickets Go On Sale Friday 9am #SolidLove #StarsUp”
He also confirmed that the group’s winning original line-up would be part of the long-awaited reunion.
“So Solid Crew are back! @LisamaffiaUK, Romeo @Harveyofficial, Asher D, Megaman & Oxide & Neutrino,” he added.
News of the UK group’s reunion follows similar announcements made by US singer Justin Timberlake and R&B trio, Destiny’s Child in the last week.
“So Solid, Destiny's Child & JT back doing their thing?! Break out the Babycham and Canei folks.. We're going back, back into time. Yay!!” ITN news reporter Charlene White wrote on Twitter.
Our entertainment columnist, Jasmine Dotiwala added: “Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child & new So Solid are back! See their return March 21st IndigO2! Welcome back @Lisamaffiauk @OFFICIALSOSOLID”
It is believed that the group will announce more dates in other cities in due course.
