BLUE EXTEND OCTOBER UK TOUR DUE TO DEMAND
Tuesday 30th April - Following their appearance on ‘The Big Reunion’ earlier this year, and a forthcoming sold out show at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 3rd May, Blue are back on the road for a full UK tour, visiting Norwich, Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and London in October. The band have today announced that due to fan demand and some shows selling out on the first day of sale that they will extend this tour to Nottingham, Bristol, Oxford, Sheffield, Liverpool, Bournemouth and Cardiff. Additional Blue tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 3rd May and are available from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
With over 15 million album sales under their belt, over ten top-ten singles and a brand new single “Hurt Lovers b” and album “Roulette” released this month the band is showing that thirteen years on they are still on top form, possibly at their best.
Their new album retains their trademark style, of emotive ballads alongside energetic tracks for the dance floor, whilst also showing a new-found maturity in their smooth performance style and seemingly effortless writing ability to pen hit song after hit song.
Lee Ryan, Antony Costa, Duncan James and Simon Webbe are no doubt one of the most successful British acts of the last decade, touring virtually every country in the world, performing and recording with the likes of Sir Elton John and Stevie Wonder. Now fans (both old and newly found) of the band will be able to see them perform in venues around England.
