CHRISTMAS WITH STEPS
AN INTIMATE EVENING OF CHRISTMAS SONGS AND CLASSIC HITS
Monday 24th September 2012 - STEPS, who sung their way to success in the 90s along with their dance routines and catchy lyrics, are reuniting for a 6 date mini UK city-centre tour in December 2012. Steps tickets go on-sale 9am on Friday 28th September and are available from www.livenation.co.uk, www.ticketmaster.co.uk or www.gigsandtours.com.
Steps will begin this festive jaunt at the Plymouth Pavilion on Friday 30th November and play in the prestigious London Palladium on Sunday 2nd December finishing up on Wednesday 5th December at Wolverhampton Civic Hall. The tour will give fans a great opportunity to see their favourite pop group in such intimate theatres. Steps will be performing some new festive flavoured songs, some hits that they didn’t perform on their sold out UK Arena tour earlier in the year, as well as some of their most popular crowd pleasers.
Steps are also pleased to announce the release of ‘LIGHT UP THE WORLD’, a fantastic collection of winter themed tracks perfect for Christmas – their first release on their own Steps Recordings/Warner Music Artist & Label Services, and their first collection of new recordings for over 10 years. The album is available to pre-order alongside tickets for the tour (visit www.facebook.com/stepsofficial for more information and links) and will appear on the usual online outlets for pre-order shortly.
The album will be released on Monday 12th November 2012. Their first album, STEP ONE was certified five times platinum, cementing their position as the UK’s biggest pop sensations. Their next album, STEPTACULAR, featuring smash hits ‘Love’s Got A Hold Of My Heart’ and ‘After The Love Has Gone,’ helped the album go four times platinum. In total, across 4 albums, STEPS sold an astonishing 15 million records.
STEPS: The Ultimate Tour Live DVD, will be available from Monday 29th October on Blu-Ray, and DVD. Following the huge success of their TV Series, Steps Reunion, which averaged 1.3million viewers per episode, the DVD follows their spectacular 20-date 2012 arena tour around the UK. Packed with the very best on stage and behind-the-scenes content, this is a must for Steps fans and first timers alike.
