Shed Seven plans UK tour

SHED SEVEN are going back on tour this December to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their platinum-selling album, A Maximum High.

Following the success of their last two sell-out tours, the band will return to the road to play a selection of their hits, including a date at the Leeds O2 on December 20.

Lead singer Rick Witter said “It’s fantastic to be getting back on the road again. I can’t believe 15 years have passed since A Maximum High and it will be good to revisit one or two songs that have been untouched for many years.

“We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve for this tour, we want to be doing something a bit different each time we go out. We’ll also be playing the hits you’d expect to hear, it wouldn’t be a Sheds gig without Chasing Rainbows would it?”

A Maximum High spawned four of the five top 40 singles the band notched up in 1996, which included Going for Gold and Getting Better, and saw the band break into the Britpop big league. The album went top 10 in the UK and the band toured it around the world.

“In those days it was all Top of the Pops, Chris Evans, Richard and Judy and flying around the world. Obviously a lot’s changed in 15 years - you’re as likely to find me on the school run as swinging my mic lead on stage these days. But hopefully we’ve proved that good songs played by a good band, stand the test of time and I still feel the stage is where I’m meant to be.

“Sheds gigs are somewhere people can lose themselves and sing their hearts out for two hours. See you at the front.”
