Wet Wet Wet: 2007 Tour
Wet Wet Wet one of the UK’s biggest bands will mark their twentieth year in the music business with the release of a brand new album containing all new material and an extensive tour of the UK including the Metro Radio Arena on Tuesday 11th December 2007.
Wet Wet Wet have a reputation as one of the best live acts in pop. Since their first major tour in 1987, they have played to more than four million people in over twenty five different countries. On their last UK tour alone (December 2004) they performed to over 100,000 people. In 2005 they played a prominent part at the Live8 Long Walk to Justice show in Edinburgh. More recently they performed a to a 30,000 capacity sell out crowd to see in the New Year in Aberdeen. The only New Years Eve gig to go ahead in Scotland due to the terrible weather the guys performed an amazing set that let everybody know they have lost none of their energy.
Famously revered for their 15 weeks at No 1 in 1994 with Love is All Around (a record that is yet to be broken by a British act) during their years together they have notched up a number of hits and accolades. After landing a record deal with Phonogram in 1985, they released their debut single, Wishing I Was Lucky in 1987 and it was the start of a phenomenal run of 26 Top 40 hits including Temptation (1988), Sweet Surrender (1989), Goodnight Girl (1991), Julia Says (1995), and If I Never See You Again (1997) with the band selling in excess of fifteen million records.
They have been working on new material for the past few months once they got back into the studio together it was like they had never been apart. There is a lot of excitement around the new album, as the Wet Wet Wet sound has understandably grown with the band members.
Wet Wet Wet were always renowned for their live performances and these dates are set to be their biggest and best yet.
Tickets costing £40 & £32.50 go on sale 9am Friday 19th January.
