Esk St shoppers were hit by a wave of high-pitched screaming when New Zealand's newest boy band arrived in Invercargill yesterday afternoon.

Titanium, a pop group formed through a radio station competition, was in the central city signing autographs and greeting fans before their concert at the velodrome last night.

Southland fans sang, danced and screamed as they queued for a chance to meet the band, but some were more excited than others.

Fourteen-year-old Georgina Chapman, who had her t-shirt signed by the six band members, said she had to sit down after meeting the group.

"It was incredible. I'm shaking so much. This t-shirt is never going to get washed.

"I gave them my number. I told them I love them."

Most of the waiting crowd were teenage girls, but a few males could be spotted in the throng.

Wilson Harris, 11, said he felt a bit overwhelmed by all the frenzied girls at the signing.

Although he liked Titanium's music, his sister had taken him along with her.

The band are performing in Dunedin tonight.
