“Last summer we got to experience a glimpse of our previous lives and we loved it! 15 years later with no rehearsals and nervous as ever we took to the stage in the middle of Trafalgar Square where the atmosphere in London was alive, as England came together to support the final of Euro2020. It was enough to light the fire between us and we can’t wait to see what new memories we can make 2022.” Tash, Liz and Jen x
“Last summer was such a beautiful, nostalgic experience being back with the girls, I truly loved every minute & I’m super excited to be doing it all over again but this time on a tour!!! I must admit when the offer of the tour first came in I was super nervous but I’m a great believer in signs, so when I noticed that the Liverpool show was on my Mums birthday – I knew my Ángels above were showing me the way (subtle as ever Mum). I can’t wait to perform for you, it’s going to spark some amazing memories for us all & hopefully make some fabulous new ones, that will last a lifetime.” Jen x
With a legacy behind them Atomic Kitten have become synonymous with fun, glamour, beauty and most importantly some of the best pop tunes of multiple generations!

“The love we received in the summer from reforming for just one week was so overwhelming and I had such a good time performing with Jen & Tash that touring again felt like a brilliant idea. I just hope my knees can take it!” Liz McClarnon
“Wow, what can I say?! I am so excited to be back touring with Liz & Jenny again. Summer 2021 was a complete whirlwind after reforming briefly for the euros. But one thing has always stood the test of time, our friendship and love for each other.
The girls are the big sisters that I never had. So after all this time, deciding to reunite and go back on tour as a 3 piece is giving me all the feels! We are going to have so much fun and bring back all the nostalgia to the fans who have supported us throughout the years. 2022 is set to be an incredible year.” Natasha Hamilton
