Former Atomic Kitten star Natasha Hamilton posted an update for fans on her blog at MySpace on Friday (October 20).
“Hi all, I’ve just come back from Ireland where I did 2 shows for the West Coast Cooler fashion show at the Radisson Hotels, saw some great talent there and got myself a couple of bits and pieces,” she writes. “Straight from there I went to London to do a show for my old mate Steve at the launch of a new marketing company called SLAM, I did the gig with my band ‘the Jonses’ was great to be in front of a live band again, it’s such a buzz, can’t wait for the next time, and the guys in the band are great too. Keep an eye out for dates, there should be a few more coming up soon! Love n hugs. Tash xx”
Former Atomic Kitten star Natasha Hamilton spoke with The Sun at her music showcase at Too 2 Much in London, where she previewed her new solo sound. “My music now is more vocally based than it was in Atomic Kitten,” she said. “I really love performing live and to see everyone’s reaction tonight gave me such a buzz. The whole experience of playing with a live band is great. When we got together in rehearsals we just gelled and when I get up there I wanna just give 100 percent, so I’ll definitely be singing live whenever I can. When I get up on stage now people are shocked. They don’t expect it because all they remember me doing is being in Atomic Kitten and singing pop songs.”

Former Atomic Kitten Natasha Hamilton spoke with The Sun after she appeared to be photographed poking her tongue towards Prince Williams’ mouth during Saturday’s Prince’s Trust 30th anniversary concert at the Tower Of London. “I was doing the Royal line-up,” the 23-year-old said. “He said hello and kissed me on the cheek. The camera has picked up the moment he leant in and we moved towards each other. The angle it’s taken from makes it look like I’m trying to snog his face off. But I don’t understand how my tongue came to be in the shot. It is so embarrassing. It’s blown my chance of a Damehood I suppose!”
Natasha Hamilton tells Neil Sean of Sky News she hopes that appearing in reality TV singing show ‘Just The Two Of Us’ as a singing coach will help her land a solo deal. “I have recorded over 30 tracks, some of which are reflective of my life, and I hope my fans will enjoy them,” the former Atomic Kitten said. “I plan to showcase the album, and now my profile has been raised on the show I’m hopeful I’ll get a release in 2006.”
