Wet Wet Wet announce 2025 Tour



Following on from a sold-out tour earlier this year which saw them perform to tens of thousands across the country, the iconic Wet Wet Wet have announced a huge tour of the UK for 2025.

 

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


The ‘Wets’ will bring to the stage their catalogue of legendary and defining hits, 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 the ubiquitous hit ‘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 monumental worldwide hit which spent an incredible 15 consecutive weeks at No.1 on the UK Singles Chart, an all-time record for a British artist that still stands.

The band appeared on Top of the Pops an incredible 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 an incredible time period of 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 massive critical acclaim. Alongside Kevin is the ever-present Graeme Clark (bass) and Graeme Duffin (guitar).

 

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 says:

‘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!’

On the success of last year’s shows, Graeme Duffin says:

 

‘The sold out 2024 tour was the most joyful and celebratory tour I’ve been on. I am eagerly looking forward to these dates in 2025. It is such a pleasure and privilege to have the opportunity to play to such lovely appreciative audiences, and I can’t wait to do it all over again, see you soon!’

 

On touring with Wet Wet Wet, Heather Small says:

 

‘I’m so excited to join Wet Wet Wet on their extensive tour in 2025. I’m a fan of their music, so to be able to share these stages with them will be a real pleasure, it’s going to be one big party’
