Original Sugababes line-up return to the stage for gig at London's Scala
The original Sugababes – now known as Mutya Keisha Siobhan – made their live return in London last night, performing new songs as well as a host of fan favourites.
Performing together for the first time in over 12 years, Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena and Siobhan Donaghy took to the stage at The Scala, performing songs from throughout their career as well as a host of new songs. Among the new tracks were ‘I’m Alright’, ‘Love Me Hard’ and ‘No Regrets’. The trio ended their performance with new single ‘Flatline’, inserting part of ‘Push The Button’ into the song’s middle eight. Scroll above to watch fan footage of the performance.
Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, who produced ‘Flatline’, was in attendance at the gig and tweeted: “Getting emotional watching @MKSOfficial play their first show together in 13 years. I’m 14 again!!”.
Some of the older songs from Sugababes’ back catalogue that Mutya Keisha Siobhan chose to perform included ‘Overload’ and ‘Freak Like Me’. Fans drowned out Donaghy’s vocals as she performed a solo originally recorded by her replacement Heidi Range on ‘Stronger’.
The founding members of Sugababes reunited last year (2012) to record a new album as Mutya Keisha Siobhan. The trio release ‘Flatline’, which also features backing vocals from Fred Macpherson of Spector, on September 1. A Klaxons remix of the track was unveiled last week (July 25).

‘Run For Cover’
‘Love Me Hard’
