Sugababes tickets go on sale as original three address Heidi Range’s absence: ‘There’s No Bad Blood’
Origibabes are back
Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy – the three original Sugababes – have been dancing with the notion of a full-blown comeback for a few years now, originally dipping their toes under the name ‘MKS’, before being given the rights to their original name.
The trio slayed a performance at Mighty Hoopla festival in London over the summer, then going on to play Glastonbury Festival – a performance organisers presumably underestimated the demand for, as gates had to be closed off due to so many people trying to get in.

No because Sugababes just shut down Glasto. Rita Ora pushed me in a bush to get through and we broke through a security gate. Unreal.

For those not in the know, as one of the most successful UK girl groups of all time, Sugababes endured numerous line-up changes throughout their career, but many fans still regard the original trio of Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan as the group’s most iconic combination.
On the other hand, many long-time fans have been calling for #JusticeforHeidi, referring to one ex-babe, Heidi Range.
Heidi spent nearly a decade as part of the Sugababes after replacing Siobhan in 2001, following the release of their debut album, and featured on many of the groups most successful songs.
While Heidi has not been part of their recent comeback, they have spoken on the matter, saying she’s “a massive part” of their history.
Addressing Heidi’s absence while speaking to The Sun, Keisha said: “I think collectively we would all agree that Heidi had her part of it and is a massive part of Sugababes. For her to have done that journey with us, she is just as important to the journey of Sugababes.”
“We’ve seen Heidi and there’s no bad blood or anything like that.”
Mutya added: “There’s no time to have bad blood with people. You’ve always got to give people their flowers.”
In a statement announcing the new tour, Sugababes said: “We’re so excited to come full circle and announce our own headline UK tour. We’ll be hitting the road in October and November – can’t wait to see you all there.”
As tickets went on sale,
the gays Sugababes fans shared their delight at getting tickets across social media, with pretty much everyone nostalgically buzzed about the reunion (except maybe Heidi).
Fingers crossed for new music from the trio!

Sugababes is the resurgence I aspire to. Glastonbury tent well over capacity & I overheard a girl in the airport in the online queue for tickets for their U.K. tour. They’ve sure picked the right time to push the button @sugababes
