The boy band, who made their name in the 1990s and relit their fire when they reformed a decade later, performed their first ever Norwich gig at Carrow Road on Thursday, June 15.

They followed it up with a second performance at the Norwich City football ground on Friday, June 16, with fans queuing for hours before the performance and spending time in the city's bars and restaurants.
