In the history of girl bands, one
stands out to prove that classic tracks and a feel good time
will never tire. The Nolans, the ultimate girl group, known
for their breathtaking harmonies and extraordinary combination
of warmth and anthemic party hits. One of our best loved
families in showbiz, the chart topping Nolans sold over 25
million records worldwide and became a global phenomenon with
their hugely successful single “I’m In The Mood For
Dancing” which topped charts around the world.
They also sold over 9 million records
in Japan alone – which was even more than the Beatles! Other
chartbusters included “Attention to Me”, “Who’s Gonna
Rock You”, “Don’t Make Waves’ and “Gotta Pull Myself
Together” proving girl power really started with The Nolans.
Linda was the first member of the hit making global phenomena
to leave in late 1983.
After reuniting for their sold out
30th anniversary tour in 2009 (which spawned best-selling
album, DVD and autobiography), Coleen, Linda and Maureen then
tragically lost their best friend, sister and band mate Bernie
to cancer in 2013. Since then the girls have been on hiatus
until the time feels right to perform together once more.
Individually the girls are all constantly in demand, Maureen
and Linda became leading ladies of the West End and continue
to tour the country in hit musicals and plays and Coleen
became one of Britain’s favourite TV presenters, having
hosted Loose Women for over 13 years and also enjoyed stints
on This Morning as well as hosting the primetime spin off show
Dancing On Ice Friday, The Truth About Eternal Youth, The
Secret Guide to Women’s Health to name just a few of her
When the time is the right The Nolans
will sing together once more and share the stunning harmonies
they are known worldwide for. Bernie will be missed forever.
