Ipswich: Nolans bring farewell tour to Regent

The Nolans are in the mood for dancing again; but next year’s Ipswich gig is going to be their last reveals Coleen, Bernie, Linda and Maureen.

“To say I’m excited would be a massive understatement. We are bowing out after 50 years in showbiz - and they said it wouldn’t last,” said Linda.

“We had such an amazing, fun time on the last tour and I have a feeling this one is going to be even better. Tinged with a little sadness that this is our farewell tour but happy in the knowledge we’re going out with a bang.”

Originally from Dublin, the sisters grew up in Blackpool. The originators of girl power, they sold more than 25 million records worldwide.

“What an amazing ride it’s been. We’ve got so many surprises in store; a fabulous live band, some great film footage and all those big diva anthems that’ll get you cutting loose on the dance floor,” added Bernie.

“I can barely put into words how I feel about the fact this is going to be the very last time we’ll ever perform together again. The Nolans has been such a huge part of our lives. We’ve loved every minute together and can’t thank the public enough for still caring about us after all these years,” said Coleen.
