Pop's Magnificent Seven: S Club 7: Arena, Sheffield ****

Dave Simpson, The Guardian, 21 May 2001

FOR THEIR FIRST TOUR, S Club 7 are taking risks. Dark-haired Hannah is lowered in on a parachute, while clean-cut Jon clambers out of the audience to persuade a "bouncer" to let him onstage. Most unfeasibly of all, wildboy Paul roars on in a go-kart. It's only a matter of time before the parachute fails, the bouncer becomes temperamental or the go-kart hurtles into the orchestra pit.

Total word count of piece: 359
