5 Exciting reunion tours to book in 2024
From hard rock to alternative rock to electropop, here are five exciting reunion tours to book in 2024 that offer something for everyone’s tastes
Everybody loves a reunion, especially when it comes to music—nothing beats the excitement of hearing that your favourite group are getting the band back together. The chance to hear your favourite songs live again—or perhaps for the first time—is an opportunity every music fan should grasp. And trust us: it will be worth the wait.
We’ve trawled through the ticket websites to bring you five of the most exciting reunion tours to book in 2024. From Nineties hard rock to Noughties electropop, these tours promise an excellent night of great tunes for any music lover.

The Blackout: February 19–24

The Welsh rock band The Blackout originally split in March 2015 following their tour “This Is It Is It: The Final Farewell Tour”. However, the band announced their first tour in nearly nine years on July 12, 2023, after successful summer festival gigs at Redhouse Cymru (which they sold out) and Download Festival.
"The Blackout have announced their first tour in almost a decade"
Fans can expect earlier songs like “Children of the Night” and “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”  as well as more recent tracks from their 2014 EP Wolves. The Blackout start at the Bread Shed in Manchester on Monday February 19, performing in Glasgow, Cardiff and Birmingham before wrapping the tour up at the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London on Saturday 24 February. Book your tickets here.

Blue: April 16–May 11 

Blue have reunited for their “Greatest Hits Tour”, with the boys travelling up and down the country to celebrate their decades-long careers. Fans can expect to hear some newer tracks on the “Greatest Hits Tour”, such as “Dance with Me” and “Heart and Soul” from their 2022 album Heart & Soul, as well as familiar favourites like “All Rise” and “One Love”.
The “Greatest Hits Tour” kicks off at the Liverpool Philharmonic on Tuesday April 16, before travelling to London, Sheffield, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Gateshead, Nottingham, Ipswich, Wolverhampton, Portsmouth, Truro, and Plymouth, ending in the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on Saturday May 11. Some tickets are still available here.

Creed: April 17–September 28

If you’re a hard rock fan and find yourself across the pond this summer, we have the tour for you. The band Creed is reuniting for the first time in 12 years for the “Summer of ’99” cruise and tour, playing all over North America in 2024. Creed rose to fame in the late Nineties and have sold more than 53 million albums worldwide—popular songs such as "Higher" and "My Sacrifice" are highly likely to feature in tour setlists.
"Creed are reuniting for the first time in 12 years for a cruise and tour"
The “Summer of ’99” cruise, which features Creed alongside other prominent acts from the late Nineties like Daughtry and Fuel, will set sail from Miami towards Nassau, Bahamas, from Thursday 18 April to Monday 22 April, and again from Saturday 27 April to Wednesday 1 May. The “Summer of ’99” tour then begins on Wednesday 17 July in Green Bay, Wisconsin, travelling through North America across 40 dates until its conclusion in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Saturday 28 September. Information is available here.

Girls Aloud: May 17–June 30

This is a reunion tour that many fans did not see coming. Girls Aloud announced their plans to reunite in November for “The Girls Aloud Show”, their first tour since “Ten: The Hits Tour” in 2013. The tour is a celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band and of bandmate Sarah Harding, who passed away in 2021.
While the setlist is still being decided (and there will be no new music), the girls are keen to incorporate their big hits, like “The Promise”, “Love Machine” and their first number one “Sound of the Underground”. There will also be some deeper cuts for the hardcore fans, and the group’s own favourite tracks. One thing is certain: if their past tours are anything to go by, “The Girls Aloud Show” will be a spectacle that is not to be missed.
"Girls Aloud's tour is a celebration of their 20th anniversary and of bandmate Sarah Harding"
“The Girls Aloud Show” kicks off on Friday 17 May at the 3 Arena in Dublin, then travels all over the UK (Belfast, Manchester, Cardiff, Sheffield, Newcastle, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham, London) and ends at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on Sunday 30 June. You can find tickets here.

New Kids on the Block: June 14–August 25

Another exciting prospect for those spending summer in the US: New Kids on the Block are headlining their own tour for the first time in ten years with “The Magic Summer 2024 Tour”, named after their worldwide 1990–1992 tour. With special guests Paula Abdul and DJ Jazzy Jeff, the tour promises to provide some serious late Eighties/early Nineties nostalgia.
Their most recent performances have included newer songs like “Block Party” and “Crash” alongside classic fan favourites such as “Step by Step”, “Hangin’ Tough”, and “You Got It (The Right Stuff)”. “The Magic Summer 2024 Tour” starts on Friday June 14 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and travels across the US over 40 dates until it concludes in Noblesville, Indiana, on Sunday August 25. You can look for tickets here.
