Wet Wet Wet Set To Return
‘Love Is All Around’ singers Wet Wet Wet have announced details of their forthcoming ‘Greatest Hits’ tour.
The shows will commence this December at Dublin’s O2 Arena followed by another 11 performances. Scottish lead singer Marti Pellow enthused about the reunion, “Touring with Wet Wet Wet is always special and we're delighted to have the opportunity to be returning to these towns. Wet's get ready to party everyone!" Drummer Tommy Cunningham added: "We've not toured the country since 2007, so we'll be playing a greatest hits-based set meaning everybody should get to hear their favourites."
The group is famous for hits such as ‘Sweet Surrender’, ‘If I Never See You Again’ and ‘Julia Says’. They also bagged three number one singles, 'With A Little Help From My Friends' in 1988, ‘Goodnight Girl’ in 1991 and 1994's 'Love Is All Around', which spent a whopping 15 weeks at the top of the UK chart - coming close to beating the record for the longest run at number 1.
The group did however break a record by playing 10 sold-out shows at Glasgow’s SECC in 1995, outselling the Rolling Stones who were also on tour that year.
