Fans of S Club 7 were infuriated when only one member of the band showed up to perform at a sold-out concert. They expected to see the promised two out of seven, if not all of the members, given they’re a group and big money was shelled out to enjoy their “pre-reunion” gig… so this is quite an injustice.
Tina Barratt and Bradley McIntosh were scheduled to perform at a bar with a capacity of 150, and £23 tickets sold out in 90 seconds.
Nevertheless, Tina was absent that night, leaving Bradley to perform alone and angering supporters. Several complained on the venue’s Facebook page, with one commenting, ‘What a letdown. Due to a signed contract, they cannot perform as S Club, and Tina is not present.
What infuriated fans was that given the circumstances, they still accepted people’s money. According to The Mirror, supporters also utilized Twitter, with one stating, “Such a dismal evening.” I felt so horrible for Bradley’. A third individual echoed: “Very furious!” Spent a lot of money to see two S Club 7 members, but only one showed up. We were also not informed about this.
The bar, Wyld, replied to the uproar by citing contractual responsibilities following the band’s reunion announcement. Owner Josh Peverley stated to the Isle of Wight County Press, ‘Unfortunately, this situation was out of our control. When we booked the show earlier this year, there was no speculation or confirmation of a S Club 7 reunion, and contractual obligations prevented them from performing at the show we had booked and sold tickets for.”
