The Whitehall Theatre in Dundee is getting ready to welcome 911 - plus special guests - on their ‘Illuminate - Hits and More’ tour.

They will be live on stage on Wednesday, March 12.

It’s 1995 - Britpop and club music collided across the UK when Jimmy Constable met Spike Dawbarn whilst working as a dancer on the cult late-night TV show ‘The Hit Man and Her’. Jimmy and Spike started to receive more recognition than the acts they were dancing for and decided to start a pop group of their own.

911 was born. Lee Brennan soon joined and after achieving two consecutive top 40 singles independently the fledgling ‘boy band’ were soon snapped up by Virgin Records after a major label bidding war.

The band crossed over as the boys scored their first top 10 hit in May 1996 in the UK with the single ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’. 911 had arrived.

In late 2012, it was announced 911 would be reuniting for the ITV2 documentary TV series ‘The Big Reunion’, along with Five; Atomic Kitten, Liberty X; Honeyz and B*Witched. The series started on January 31, 2013 and instantly became the biggest show the station had had for more than five years with 911 one of the highlights as their honesty and storytelling quickly entranced their audience.

The renaissance of 911 continued with the release of a brand spanking new version of ‘Bodyshaking’ in the summer of 2013.

Also coming up at the Whitehall Theatre is Dance Zone’s ‘There’s No Place Like Zone’ on Friday, February 28 and Saturday, March 1. This features fantastic performances of street, modern and tap dance, dazzling costumes and excellent vocalists.
