Love Is All Around As Wet Wet Wet Announce 2021 Tour

With 2021 looking brighter for all, love really will be all around as Wet Wet Wet are heading back out on the road for a full theatre tour in autumn. Kicking off ‘The Journey’ tour in their beloved homeland of Scotland, the band will visit 20 cities across the UK in what will be their largest tour since 2019’s sold-out run.

Having spent a fair amount of time in their homes this year, the band turned their creative juices on to entertain fans via their ‘Wet Wet Wet from Home’ sessions, rearranging original classics in videos viewed by tens of thousands. Now itching to see their fans in person, the tour will be their second full run with singer Kevin Simm, who was seamlessly welcomed into the fold in 2018. Previously a member of BRIT Award winning band Liberty X, Kevin won the 2016 series of The Voice UK.

When asked about the excitement of a new tour, Graeme Clark said:
"Nothing comes near to playing a live gig, from travelling to the venue for the soundcheck, to getting psyched before you go on, the roar when the lights go down, doing your gig with your musical brothers, to the bow at the end of the show. When you get it right it completely re-energises you. Going out on a tour is one of the most exhilarating things you can do in life."
