Fast becoming a reverential annual phenomena, Shed Seven's end of year concerts still generate excitement for a '90s Brit-pop band that should have been a lot bigger than they were, despite achieving national success.
In 2012, Rick Witter and co performed a welter of festivals before performing a relatively short hop during the run up to Christmas - not so this year. Echoing their sell-out 2011 tour in size, they've outlined a sizeable dalliance in December that will, as the tour-name suggests, concentrate on their 'Greatest Hits'.
First stop is Newcastle on 6th December, followed by Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool and many more until London on the 20th and Leeds on the 21st.
Tickets on sale now, priced from £19.50 upwards.
Doubters about the word 'hits' in that tour title should scoff no more - Shed Seven racked up fifteen Top 40 hits in nine key years, including the super "Chasing Rainbows" (surprisingly not their biggest), "Going For Gold" (their biggest!), "Getting Better", "She Left Me On Friday" and 2003's "Why Can't I Be You?". Tickets are sure to sell well with the distinct possibility of more shows being added (currently, London is the most southerly).
