It took a kitchen sing-song to get '80s British pop group Bananarama back together and out on the road after 30 years.

The girl group's original members — Sarah Dallin, Keren Woodward and Siobhan Fahey — say they are touring the U.S. for the first time in February.

Fahey left the band in 1988 to form Shakespears Sister, and Dallin and Woodward have been performing as a duo in recent years. They were joined briefly by Jacquie O'Sullivan, who took part in a 1989 world tour but left in 1991.

"We were having a dance around Siobhan's kitchen a few years ago," Woodward told The Associated Press in an interview. "And I said to her, 'you just don't understand the love and how it feels when you are getting your songs sung' and I just thought it was such a shame she had never experienced it with us and it just seemed like such a crying shame really."

Fahey, who now lives in Los Angeles, said she was excited to perform the band's songs live.

"I am re-familiarizing myself with our body of work over the summer," she said. "I was so proud, it is really something to celebrate."

Rehearsals began this week and tickets go on sale Friday.
