Wet Wet Wet tour chart hits and new songs to Buxton
Love really will be all around when chart-toppers Wet Wet Wet visit Derbyshire as part of a tour of 20 towns and cities across the UK.
The group will be performing classic hits and new material at Buxton Opera House on November 3, 2021.
This tour will be their second full run with singer Kevin Simm who was welcomed into the fold two years ago. Previously a member of BRIT Award winning band LibertyX, Kevin won the 2016 series of The Voice UK.Next year will also see the band release their first album with Kevin at the helm, entitled The Journey. Neil Mitchell said: “Releasing a new Wets studio album in 2021 is all the more unusual because of these weird times that we're living in. Having Kevin as our singer now gives the band and the new album a different dynamic and reinvigorated Wet Wet Wet for an exciting journey ahead.”Kevin said: “I have loved being part of the band, performing with the lads and singing an incredible catalogue of songs. We have really gelled as a band on stage and as friends off it, so it was the next natural step to write and release new music.”Wet Wet Wet have made a huge impact with their music over the last four decades, becoming one of the most successful bands in British pop history. Selling in excess of 15million singles and albums to date, Wet Wet Wet have featured in the UK official singles and album charts for more than 500 weeks. Their number one hits include With A Little Help From My Friends and Goodnight Girl, while Love Is All Around was the biggest selling single of 1994, spending 15 weeks at the top of the charts and setting an as yet unbroken record for the longest spell at the top for any UK artist.Tommy Cunningham said: “2021 is going to be one of the most challenging but most successful years in our 30-year plus career.”
