S CLUB 7 fans were left furious after only one member of the group turned up to perform at an intimate sold-out show.
Tina Barrett, 46, and Bradley McIntosh, 41, had been scheduled to play at the 150-capacity Wyld venue in Newport, Isle of Wight, after eager fans snapped up the £23 tickets in under 90 seconds.
But on the night of the gig, only Bradley turned up after Tina had a scheduling clash.
One fan raged: "Absolutely raging!! Paid good money to see two members of S Club 7 and only one showed up. We weren't notified about this either."
Another fumed: "What a disappointing night. I felt so bad for Bradley."
A third branded it a "let down".

A spokesman for the venue told the Star: "Sadly, this situation was out of our hands."
Nineties pop icons S Club – Hannah Spearritt, 41, Jon Lee, 40, Jo O’Meara, 43, Paul Cattermole, 45, Rachel Stevens, 44, Bradley and Tina – recently reformed for a huge UK arena tour for their 25th anniversary.
In their first print interview in eight years, the group said they wanted to bring some joy to the nation.
Tina said: “Everything, every day. It’s like, what’s next? A zombie invasion? So we thought, let’s get S Club back together and bring some positivity back.”

Jo continued: “I think because it’s been 25 years, we all kind of knew. It was always going to happen again and it was just a matter of when.”
Rachel added: “People want nostalgia. They want to be taken back to those good times.
“It’s amazing to celebrate these things. It’s 25 years so I think the world needs a bit of joy.”
The group previously reunited for a tour in 2015 and now admit they could have regrouped sooner, except they couldn’t find Jon.
He said: “That’s why it’s taken so long to do this, they couldn’t find me.
“I was in India for three and a half years. I went travelling and then I found some dogs over there which I adopted and brought home.
“But I stayed there for a while.
“It’s such an incredible opportunity and when life throws something like that in front of you, you’d be mental not to take it.
“To do an arena tour is incredible anyway and this will be our fifth.”
In five years, from 1998 to 2003, they released four albums, performed three arena tours, won two Brit Awards, had a TV series and even made a feature-length film, Seeing Double.
But they believe they are now ready for their biggest challenge yet — Glastonbury Festival.
Recalling some of their own most memorable moments, Rachel said: “We got to be on stage with some amazing people. We performed with people like Paul McCartney, Brian May, Cliff Richard and Phil Collins.”
Jo continued: “We’ve been very lucky. But we need Glastonbury next. I’m going to manifest it. We need to do it.
