Danity Kane has announced a reunion tour. Three of the five original members will participate. Dawn Richard, Aubrey O’Day, and Shannon Bex will kick off The Universe Is Undefeated Tour in September.
“We have been through a journey of a lot of ups and downs, but on any journey it requires the people involved to not be willing to let go of each other and that’s what we’re on so, we’re super grateful to be back in each other’s lives,” Aubrey O’day tells E! News. “To have survived the last round and truly come together as sisters and do it for ourselves and also for the fans.”
Dawn chimed in as well, detailing how the reunion was prompted.
“The conversations started because I think Aubrey and I wanted to touch base cause we hadn’t in a long time and I think we both had feelings of feeling like we needed to have that conversation. We’re sisters at the end of the day and I think if you go through life you still remember like I really want a relationship with these girls even though you go through things, you really want that comradery and so Aubrey and I had a great conversation.”
Aubrey also explained the setup, considering their solo projects.
“Dawn is going to be doing her solo performances from her solo album and then together we’re going to come back together, DK3, and also be performing Danity Kane songs that all the fans love. So you’re getting the best of all of our worlds, solo worlds and group worlds.”
The group had split up in 2014 after a physical altercation. Dawn pursued a solo career while Aubrey and Shannon Bex formed Dumblonde
