Comprising of London-based lads Antony Costa, Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan and Duncan James, Blue released their first single in May 2001, the anthemic ‘All Rise’, and were immediately on their way to pop stardom.
Hit singles from their three #1 albums included ‘All Rise’, ‘If You Come Back’, ‘Fly By’, ‘One Love’, ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’ (with Sir Elton John), ‘Bubblin’ and ‘Signed Sealed Delivered’ (with Stevie Wonder & Angie Stone).
The boys decided to take a break from their hectic schedules in 2005 and pursue solo projects, which included solo albums, stage performances, stints on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here and Dancing On Ice and much, much more…
On 7th June 2009, Blue reunited to headline at Capital FM’s charity event, Summertime Ball, at the Emirates stadium, ‘duetting’ with Lionel Richie on his classic ballad ‘Easy’ and performing their greatest hits before a sell-out crowd of 55,000. That was the first steps towards the long road to “Roulette”, Blue’s first new studio album in ten years.
In 2013 Blue followed up Roulette by performing 173 shows and events in 21 countries world wide including five incredible sold out tours, playing to over 600,000 people.
In June 2014, Blue started work on their fifth studio album and are also starring in The Big Reunion.
