Huge 90s band look very different as they reunite for UK tour 29 years after they first split | The Sun

DEACON Blue may be reuniting for a UK tour, but they've certainly changed since the first time around.

Known for their string of 90s hits, the six-piece look uncrecognisable these days – especially since they've lost and gained a few members.

As part of their world tour, the Scottish band are playing in Bournemouth tonight and have Brighton dates scheduled for the weekend.

They'll move on to Australia, New Zealand and South Africa later in the year.

Ricky Ross, James Prime, Lorraine McIntosh, Dougie Vipond, Gregor Philp and Lewis Gordon currently make up the roster.

Past members include Graeme Kelling, Ewen Vernal, Mick Slaven, Scott Fraser, Taj Wyzgowski, Ged Grimes and Chris Henderson.
