Teletubbies confirm a reunion dance tour

MUMBAI: UK pubcaster BBC has announced that The Teletubbies are to reunite for a comeback dance tour after a break of almost a decade, joining the growing number of groups to reform.

The fun-loving fab four, Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po, will embark on an 11-day tour of the UK in September, kicking off in London on 10 September, 2009.

Interest in the Teletubbies, with sales of over 33 million videos and DVDs, has never disappeared.

Since their formation in 1997, the charismatic four have appeared in over 365 television episodes, and have been seen in over 120 countries and won numerous international awards including two Baftas.

The Teletubbies have still to decide exactly which dances to perform, but the BBC says that they promise plenty of interaction, laughter and entertainment. Although they have enjoyed a more relaxed schedule over the last few years, they are reportedly very happy to leave Teletubbyland for a short time to go on the road - albeit that they will be travelling with plenty of Tubby Custard and Tubby toast.

Their new material has been made available to download from iTunes and other digital stores from 24 August. It will be followed by the re-release of their album on 7 September which will feature bonus remixes.

BBC Children‘s DVD Ready Steady Dance is also released on 7 September, and will feature children‘s favourite dances and exercises, as well as a music video

to ‘Follow My Leader‘ which sees the Teletubbies brought to life in animation for the very first time.
