Pop group Steps are back and heading for Peterborough!
The group behind hits like Tragedy, Stomp and Better Best Forgotten have staged a huge comeback and as part of their 20th Anniversary celebrations, they’ve announced a Peterborough gig at the ABAX as part of a huge summer outdoor tour; GRANDSLAM 2018: SUMMER OF STEPS.
It follows the hugely successful performance at the stadium by super star Elton John this year and will see the pop heroes perform live in the city on Saturday June 2 next year. Steps will be supported by boyband Blue and Aqua.
Steps said – “We can’t wait to play outdoors across the UK next summer following on from our sold-out Party on the Dancefloor arena tour this winter. The appetite for Steps has never been stronger, and we are thrilled to continue performing throughout next year. We promise to deliver a massive party at our summer gigs. Bring your family and bring your friends – we cannot wait to see you there!”
Steps first broke on to the pop scene in 1997 and their debut single 5,6,7,8 achieved record-breaking success; a clear indication of what was to follow! The band – who became synonymous with lively dance performances, colourful costumes, and a refreshing take on pop tunes each bursting with personality and stellar lyrics – went on to achieve an unbroken run of fourteen Top 5 singles (including three Number 1’s), two four-times Platinum albums and one five-times Platinum album.
During their career, until their break in 2001, they notched up an impressive 20 million in record sales and seven sold-out arena tours. A decade later, the band decided to reunite, shooting to Number 1 with their 2011 hits compilation ‘The Ultimate Collection’, and selling out their 20-date Ultimate Tour.
In 2017, to mark their 20th Anniversary, Steps brought out their highly anticipated album ‘Tears on the Dancefloor’, which achieved Silver status in just three weeks, and announced their indoor winter 2017 Party on the Dancefloor Tour.
The huge success of the album, which features a host of new material, including the smash single Scared of the Dark, has recently led to the album being re-released as a deluxe edition (led by the new single Dancing with a Broken Heart), and to the announcement of their massive GRANDSLAM 2018: SUMMER OF STEPS Tour.
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live, Promoter said, “Steps are amazing performers and put on a terrific show. We are thrilled to be working with them on their 2018 summer outdoor tour. They are better than they have ever been! We welcome their strong legion of fans who have followed them throughout their career, and new fans too. We’re looking forward to a brilliant summer; you won’t be disappointed!”
