WET WET WET & HEATHER SMALL TO PERFORM AT HULL’S CONNEXIN LIVE IN FEBRUARY 2025

Following on from a sold-out tour earlier this year which saw them perform to tens of thousands across the country, Wet Wet Wet have announced a huge tour of the UK for 2025, which includes a show at Connexin Live in Hull on Saturday 1st February 2025.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday 22nd March at 10am.

Featuring founding member Graeme Clark, accompanied long-standing guitarist Graeme Duffin, and fronted by Kevin Simm, the band will perform two runs of dates in 2025 in both January and February, as well as later in the year in October.

The ‘Wets’ will bring to the stage their catalogue of legendaryhits, including the likes of ‘Sweet Little Mystery’, ‘Angel Eyes’, ‘Goodnight Girl’, ‘With a Little Help from My Friends’, ‘Sweet Surrender’, ‘Julia Says’ and more.

They will also perform ‘Love Is All Around’, their cover of The Troggs’ 1960s song, which this May, celebrates 30 years since it became the soundtrack to the summer of 1994.

Recorded for the Richard Curtis film Four Weddings and a Funeral, the song became a worldwide hit which spent 15 consecutive weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart, an all-time record for a British artist that still stands.

The band appeared on Top of the Pops 19 times in 1994 – their 56 appearances in total on the programme also being a record for a Scottish act.

Wet Wet Wet have sold more than 15 million singles and albums to date and have featured in the UK Singles Chart and Album Chart for over 500 weeks.

Their albums have been certified 20x platinum in the UK alone.

Since 2018, Wet Wet Wet have been fronted by Kevin Simm, winner of ‘The Voice UK’ and former member of Liberty X, and they released their first album with Kevin, ‘The Journey’, in 2021 to critical acclaim.

On the tour dates for 2025 Wet Wet Wet will be joined by special guest Heather Small who will be opening all the shows.

Having rose to fame as the lead vocalist of the band M People, Heather is known for hits like ‘Moving on Up’ and ‘Search for the Hero.’

With a career spanning several decades, her distinct vocal style and charismatic stage presence have earned her a dedicated fan base and critical acclaim.

Heather Small touring with Wet Wet Wet came about in serendipitous circumstances, as founding member Graeme Clark explains: “To be back playing live, in the band I love, playing the songs I love, to people I love, completely fills my heart and soul.

“We can’t wait to see everybody again throughout 2025 in a venue close by. We were headlining a festival in Dubai recently where we bumped into the wonderful Heather Small and we are absolutely delighted that she’s accepted our invitation to join us as special guest on all of our tour dates next year.

“Simply put, these shows are not to be missed.”

On next year’s tour Kevin Simm said: “It’s so exciting to be going back out on tour throughout 2025. Our recent concerts created some fantastic memories for us all and it was an incredible experience that I will never ever forget.

“With Heather Small joining us as special guest on this tour it is going to be a great night of hits, energy and fun – I can’t wait!”
