Right Said Fred announce release of new album, DVD and UK tour dates April 2011
Posted: 16th February 2011
Right Said Fred, the duo comprising Richard and Fred Fairbrass, have announced plans for their 'Night Of The Living Fred' UK tour as well as details of a new album, DVD and website. The band who back in 1992 were the first act since the Beatles to reach No.1 in the USA with a debut single, have decided to take a break from their usual European stadium circuit in order to get back to their roots and connect with their fans on a more intimate basis.
To this end the brothers will be enjoying a Q & A with their audience as well as performing some of their greatest hits, and some newer, more poignant, lovelorn ditties (firmly allaying themselves with English bedfellows like Madness and the Kink.
Right Said Fred recently announced a deal with investment fund Icebreaker and will be releasing a new DVD and album (both distributed by Universal) as part of a double-pack on April 11th 2011. The DVD, Night Of The Living Fred (An Evening With Right Said Fred), was recently filmed before a packed audience at the Leicester Square Theatre and features the Freds letting their hair down and spilling the beans on sibling rivalry, debauchery at the home of one of the world's greatest porn-stars and what really happened to that Toblerone bar in the American Hotel in Amsterdam. The new album Stop The World features twelve new tracks including Stop The World, Trouble With Love, Julianne, Waiting For A Train, Two White Boys, Obvious, Happily Ever After, I Ain't Your Guy, Feels Like Love, We're All Criminals, Come Dancing, Raining In England.
The band's new website www.rightsaidfred.com enables subscribers to obtain a free copy of Stop The World as well as access to exclusive copies of the Night Of The Living Fred DVD. However, www.rightsaidfred.com is a site with a difference: subscribers will be able to enter into a uniquely interactive relationship with Richard and Fred themselves, a process that involves genuine meet and greets as well as exclusive access to the brother's exclusive photo archive.
We love being connected with our fans and this new website will bring that connection even closer. We plan to use the site to become even more intimately involved than we are at present, both of us will be online and directly in contact with our audience.
The thing that this enables us to do is keep in touch with fans wherever they are and wherever we are in the world, all the time. We are lucky to be able to perform all over the world, but we can only be in one country at a time. Now we can do a show in Germany and share the experience with the USA, Japan and back home...it's really exciting.
Right Said Fred have sold over twenty million records worldwide and their singles - including I'm Too Sexy, Deeply Dippy and the NFL stalwart Stand Up For The Champions - have hit the No.1 slot in 32 countries.
Their new album Stop The World and new DVD Night Of The Living Fred will be released on April 11th 2011.
