TV show The Big Reunion and its ilk has a lot to answer for - namely, for resurrecting the careers of pop bands from the past who arguably should have stayed buried.
The most recent tour has seen Liberty X, Atomic Kitten, S Club 7, East 17 and B*Witched travelling to Australia and New Zealand to play several gigs under a '90s/noughties reunion banner.
By all accounts the start of the tour has been a bit of a disaster; the three original members of S Club 7 were reduced to two due to illness which saw them singing along to a backing track, Atomic Kitten were down a member because one of them is afraid of flying, and Liberty X (or at least, the three girls) came under fire for only performing two songs - 'Just a Little' and 'Being Nobody'.
True - the pop group, who formed on Popstars in 2001, were only contracted for two songs - but the audience were left disgruntled, nonetheless.
Fans gutted after Liberty X only play two songs at gig , Are they really surprised they are rubbish anyway, especially heaton

However, according to band member Michelle Heaton, the pop trio have been granted extra time on the Australian leg of the tour - so everyone can calm down.
