In an emotional video uploaded to Instagram on 14th May the group, consisting of Jon Lee, Jo O’Meara, Bradley McIntosh, Tina Barrett and Rachel Stevens, paid tribute to Paul as they confirmed their plans to continue their reunion tour, which they announced back in February.
“It’s going to be our tribute to Paul,” Jon said. “We’re actually renaming the tour the Good Times tour which is the song Paul was going to sing.”
Tina added: “That was his song and the fans know that was his song and that just feel right.”
Rachel assured fans Paul will be at the centre of everything they plan for their concerts, explaining: “He’s always going to be with us, in everything that we’re planning. We’re going to keep his memory alive and share it with all of you.
They rounded off their video update by thanking fans for all the love and supportive messages they’ve received in the past few weeks.
S Club 7 were one of the biggest pop groups in the late 90s and into the early 2000s, with hits including ‘Reach’, ‘Don’t Stop Movin’’, and ’S Club Party’.
Their tour takes place in October this year in arenas across the UK.
