5ive are an English boy band consisting of members Sean Conlon, Abz Love, Ritchie Neville, and Scott Robinson. They were formed in 1997 and were mostly known as a 5ive-piece, consisting of Robinson, Neville, Love, Conlon and Jason “J” Brown. 5ive enjoyed remarkable success worldwide, particularly in the UK, most of Europe, and Asia. They split up on 27 September 2001 after selling 20 million records worldwide.
In 2012, the 5ive announced that they were planning a reunion. The group have continued with only four members, but decided to keep the name, 5ive. Alongside Blue, 911, Atomic Kitten, B*witched, Honeyz and Liberty X, 5ive were featured in the ITV2 documentary series The Big Reunion, which began airing on 31 January 2013.
This was followed by a comeback performance at the Hammersmith Apollo on 26 February 2013 and an arena tour around the UK and Ireland in May. In November and December 2013, 5ive headlined their own tour, the 5ive Greatest Hits Tour, their first solo tour as a four-piece.
