WET Wet Wet appear at The Anvil on Wednesday, 8 May with new singer Kevin Simm, best known for his time in noughties pop sensation Liberty X and as winner of the 2016 series of The Voice.

Ahead of embarking on his first tour with Wet Wet Wet, Kevin said: “I’m very excited to go out on tour with the guys.

“The reaction to the first two shows was overwhelming and confirmed to me that I’m in the right place.

“I am really looking forward to performing for and meeting more of the band’s fans across the country in 2019.”

The band’s Tommy Cunningham said “It’s a new and exciting chapter for Wet Wet Wet as we embrace the opportunity to reconnect with our fans on an intimate level. We can’t wait to visit some towns and cities that we haven’t been to in a while and some we’ve never played in.”

Bursting onto the scene out of Glasgow in 1987, Wet Wet Wet are one of the most successful bands in British pop history with an amazing back catalogue of songs including three number ones Help From My Friends, Goodnight Girl and Love Is All Around.

For a special start to what will be a memorable evening, you can kick off the fun by taking part in the Wet Wet Wet VIP Sound Check Experience, allowing you to go behind the scenes with access to the band’s sound check where you will exclusively see them run through some songs, and have the opportunity to take your picture with the band.

The following evening on May 9 is Tubular Bells for Two - created and performed by Australian multi-instrumentalists Aidan Roberts and Daniel Holdsworth.

Composed by Mike Oldfield in 1973, the album Tubular Bells was the first release on Richard Branson’s fledgling record label, Virgin Records. The album went on to sell over 30 million copies.

Now, 45 years on, Roberts and Holdsworth present this modern masterpiece in a spellbinding and challenging live event.

The duo are literally rushed off their feet as they dash around a sea of instruments. It is an intricately choreographed and thrilling virtuoso performance from two musicians at the top of their game.

In this, the 60th anniversary of one of the world’s best known music venues, The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars take to the road to celebrate the world-famous jazz club, and appear at The Anvil on Thursday, 16 May.

The Ronnie Scott’s Story is a glimpse into the unparalleled venue and its incredible and memorable history, featuring the music of jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s alongside rare archive photos and video footage.

From tales of miscreant musicians and police raids, pop stars and film stars, to politicians and royalty, life at Ronnie’s is evocatively re-imagined.
