Girl power hits Auckland with B*witched and Atomic Kitten reunion

The 90s reunion was a special moment for fans.

By Sebastian van der Zwan

Beloved ‘90s girl bands B*witched and Atomic Kitten reformed for a special gig in Auckland last night – and Woman’s Day went backstage to get the goss on their reunions.

Irish babes Lindsay Armaou, Sinead O’Carroll, and sisters Edele and Keavy Lynch are best known as B*witched, who had number-one hits in New Zealand with their debut single “C’est la Vie” and its follow-up “Rollercoaster” in 1998.

The group visited Aotearoa back in 1999 and this time around, it was the trio of Sinead, Edele and Keavy who made the return trip back to New Zealand to wow their fans with all of their classic hits.

Watch the girls performing below. Story continues after the video.

Meanwhile, Atomic Kitten – consisting of English lasses Natasha Hamilton, Kerry Katona and Michelle Heaton – topped our charts with their tune “Whole Again” as well as covers “Eternal Flame” and “The Tide is High”.

Speaking of what’s changed since their pop heyday, Natasha tells us, “We have freedom now and I’ve grown up a lot. I’m not gonna take on an unreasonable schedule. When we were kids, the boss man said, ‘Jump!’ and we all said, ‘How high?’ Now we all need the right balance between being on tour and being a parent.” Read the full interview in our latest issue.

B*witched and Atomic Kitten perform again at Auckland’s ASB Theatre tomorrow night, supported by Michelle’s other band, Liberty X, who had a hit in NZ with their song “Just a Little”. S Club 3, the remaining members of S Club 7, had been scheduled to perform as well, but lead singer Jo O’Meara has been struck down with food poisoning.
