Shed Seven Announce UK Tour

SHED Seven will embark on their Maximum Hits and Maximum Highs tour later this year and to coincide with the dates the band are releasing a new version of Chasing Rainbows which they recorded as part of a recent anniversary acoustic session. 

The track is available here for free and marks 15 years since the single’s release. 

Also to celebrate the release and due to popular demand, a second hometown show at York Barbican has been added for Wednesday 21st December.  This will be the last date added to the tour.

Horns featured heavily on the platinum-selling “A Maximum High” and for the first time ever on a  live tour live the band will be reproducing that sound using a three-piece brass section.

Following the huge success of their last two sell-out tours, Shed Seven are returning to the road to play a selection of their hit singles whilst also celebrating the 15th anniversary of their platinum selling album “A Maximum High” by revisiting several of the tracks from that album. A Maximum High spawned four of the record 5 top 40 singles the band notched up in 1996, which included Going for Gold and Getting Better, and saw them break into the Britpop big league. The album went top 10 in the UK and the band toured it around the world.

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 Shed gig without Chasing Rainbows would it?”
