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 credits.

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.
