The East 17 reunion has failed miserably with just 30 fans turning up for a show that would hold 833 in Dublin.
According to Metro, East 17 delayed the start of the show in case more fans would come through the door but it would seem that the crowd was nowhere to be seen, just like the main members of the band.

East 17 had a number of hits in the early 90s in ‘House of Love’ (no 10 UK, no 5 Au), ‘Deep’ (no 5 UK, no 7 Au), ‘West End Girls’ (no 11 UK, no 4 Au), Its Alright (No 3 UK, no 1 Au), ‘Around The World’ (no 3 UK, no 4 Au) and ‘Stay Another Day’ (no 1 UK, no 3 Au). The original group had 12 Top 10 hits in the UK and 6 in Australia.
