It took 30 years, but Bananarama fans can rejoice–the British pop trio is hitting America for the first time, featuring the original lineup. 

Following their first U.K. tour together, Sara Dallin, Keren Woodward and Siobhan Fahey have announced they’ll play select North American dates in February. The pop stars, who the Guinness Book of Records named "the most successful girl group of all-time" for achieving more hit singles than any female band in history, have already sold out a number of U.K. dates

Bananarama’s North American run kicks off in L.A. and wraps in New York City (see full schedule below). Fans can expect to hear enduring '80s hits including “Venus,” “Cruel Summer,” “I Heard a Rumour” and many others.

Before the three ever had a chance to tour together, Fahey left the group in 1988. Dallin and Woodward continued the band, touring worldwide and releasing more records while Fahey formed pop-rock duo Shakespears Sister.

In a statement, Fahey explained that the idea to reunite and tour for the first time together came about two years ago when the three friends had dinner. An impromptu kitchen dance party ensued, and the rest is history.
