Shed Seven have announced they are to embark on a UK tour this December. Following the huge success of their last two sell-out tours, the band will return to the road to play a selection of their hit singles whilst also celebrating the 15th anniversary of their platinum selling album “A Maximum High” by revisiting several of the tracks from that album.

Lead singer Rick Witter said “It’s fantastic to be getting back on the road again. I can’t believe 15 years have passed since A Maximum High and it will be good to revisit one or two songs that have been untouched for many years. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve for this tour, we want to be doing something a bit different each time we go out. We’ll also be playing the hits you’d expect to hear, it wouldn’t be a Shed gig without Chasing Rainbows would it?.”

A Maximum High spawned 4 of the record 5 top 40 singles the band notched up in 1996, which included Going for Gold and Getting Better, and saw the band break into the Britpop big league. The album went top 10 in the UK and the band toured it around the world.

“In those days it was all Top of the Pops, Chris Evans, Richard and Judy and flying around the world. Obviously a lot’s changed in 15 years, personally you’re as likely to find me on the school run as swinging my mic lead on the stage but hopefully we’ve proved that good songs played by a good band, stand the test of time and I still feel the stage is where I’m meant to be. Shed gigs are somewhere people can lose themselves and sing their hearts out for 2 hours. See you at the front…..”
