Following on from their hugely successful UK Spring Tour, Wet Wet Wet have today announced a six-date Scottish tour that kicks off in Aberdeen before taking in Hamilton, Kilmarnock, Dundee, Edinburgh, and Inverness.
Graeme Clark said, “We can’t wait to get back out on the road. For us, there’s nothing like coming back to Scotland and playing to the best fans in the world.”
Kevin Simm commented “Playing in Scotland means so much to the guys, and to me now that I’m an honorary Scot! The Scottish fans in particular have really welcomed me into the band and their enthusiasm and excitement at the shows has been amazing. I can’t wait to get out and play for them again.”
Bursting onto the scene out of Glasgow in 1987, Wet Wet Wet has undeniably been a musical phenomenon. The band have gone on to sell over 15 million albums and singles, spent over 500 weeks on the UK charts and sold hundreds of thousands of gig tickets.
Love Is All Around, was the biggest selling single of 1994, when it spent 15 weeks at No1, making it the longest spell at the top for any UK artist.
The band performed on the renowned BBC TV programme Top Of The Pops 56 times, a record for a Scottish artist.
