Blue have announced The Greatest Hits tour for April & May 2024!

In 1999, Lee Ryan and Antony Costa met as teenagers when auditioning for a segment on ITV’s This Morning which saw Simon Cowell looking to form the next big British boy band. Ryan was selected for the group but Costa was not, but after the group failed to take off, Ryan and Costa remained friends. Costa later formed his own group with friend Duncan James and invited Ryan to join them. Working alongside manager Daniel Glatman, the trio held auditions for a fourth member which eventually went to Ryan’s then-flatmate Simon Webbe. 

The group landed a recording contract with Innocent Records and began working with songwriting teams before the release of their debut single, ‘All Rise’. The song made its way into the Top 10 in the UK charts in 2001. The group’s debut album included more Top 10 singles like ‘Fly By’ and a mix of pop ballads and up-tempo numbers.
