ICONIC boyband Let Loose reunited for the first time in 26 years on stage tonight ahead of their Netflix documentary and new single and album.
Band members Rob Jeffrey and Lee Murray joined former Bad Boys Inc singer Matthew James Pateman in Hereford to switch the Christmas lights on.
The band performed their first two classic singles Crazy For You and The Way I Wanna Be to a crowd of several thousand people in High Town.
They also gave an exclusive first performance of their new single.
A production crew from Netflix were spotted filming ahead of a new documentary which is due to air next year on the streaming platform.
It comes 29 years after their huge number one hit Crazy for You and achieving a total of seven UK top 40 songs.
Lee, Richie Wermerling and Rob formed the group in 1993.
They went on to release two albums, Let Loose and Rollercoaster, before splitting in 1996.
They reunited in 2008 to write another track and then also took part in the Another Time, Another Place arena tour that included popular 1990s and 2000s acts.
Richie was lead vocals, Rob was the band’s guitarist and backing singer, while Lee was on drums.
Now fellow nineties singer Matthew from Bad Boys Inc has replaced Richie as lead vocalist.
Lee told Metro earlier this year: “We’re so excited to be coming back with Let Loose.
“It’s something our fans have been asking us to do for years, and we’re so happy that everything’s fallen into place with Matthew now as our lead singer, as he’s so brilliant.”
Matthew added: “I’ve always had a respect for Let Loose and their music. In the industry, they were always ‘dumped’ into the ‘boy band’ category – but they’re more than that.
“They’re great musicians and the craftsmanship of the Let Loose songs have truly stood the test of time.”
Pop band Bad Boys Inc notched up six Top 40 hits and a best-selling album.
Let Loose’s first two singles Crazy For You and The Way I Wanna Be were released in 1993, placing at number 44 and 82.
It was when they re-released Crazy For You in 1994, it smashed the UK charts, hitting the number two spot.
