With 2021 looking brighter for all, love really will be all around as Wet Wet Wet are heading back out on the road for a full theatre tour in autumn, including a stop in Eastbourne on Nov. 6, 2021.
Kicking off ‘The Journey’ tour in their beloved homeland of Scotland, the band will visit 20 cities across the UK in what will be their largest tour since 2019’s sold-out run.
Having spent a fair amount of time in their homes this year, the band turned their creative juices on to entertain fans via their ‘Wet Wet Wet from Home’ sessions, rearranging original classics in videos viewed by tens of thousands. Now itching to see their fans in person, the tour will be their second full run with singer Kevin Simm who was seamlessly welcomed into the fold in 2018.
Previously a member of BRIT Award winning band Liberty X, Kevin won the 2016 series of The Voice UK. When asked about the excitement of a new tour, Graeme Clark said,
‘Nothing comes near to playing a live gig, from travelling to the venue for the soundcheck, to getting psyched before you go on, the roar when the lights go down, doing your gig with your musical brothers, to the bow at the end of the show. When you get it right it completely re-energises you. Going out on a tour is one of the most exhilarating things you can do in life.’
Next year will also see the band release their first album with Kevin at the helm, entitled ‘The Journey’, available to pre-order now.
Wet Wet Wet are a musical phenomenon, having made an impact with their music over the last four decades, becoming one of the most successful bands in British pop history. Selling in excess of 15 million singles and albums to date, Wet Wet Wet have featured in the UK official singles and album charts for over 500 weeks. With number 1 hits including ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ and ‘Goodnight Girl’, 1994’s ‘Love Is All Around’ was the biggest selling single of the year, when it spent 15 weeks at No 1, making it the longest spell at the top for any UK artist – a record that still stands.
Tommy Cunningham concluded ‘2021 is going to be one of the most challenging but most successful years in our entire 30-year plus career. We will not go down. We will fight on and the journey continues. Wet Wet Wet have a very bright future and we all can’t wait.’
