Pop duo Right Said Fred are back
The duo comprising Richard and Fred Fairbrass, have announced plans for their new single Stop the World (May 2/), Universal, plus the Night Of The Living Fred UK tour as well as a new album also entitled Stop the World.
Expect to see the band on Vanessa Feltz tv show this month as well as ITV’s Daybreak show next month. The band have just completed some advanced radio promotion interviews with Q Radio and BFBS radio as well as regional radio interviews with Capital, BRMB, Metro and dozens of BBC radio.
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 Kinks), on the following dates:
25th Birmingham O2 Academy3
27th London Islington O2 Academy2
28th Sheffield O2 Academy2
29th Liverpool Guild Of Students, Stanley Theatre
30th York Fibbers
6th Stockton On Tees The Arc
7th Cleethorpes Pleasure Island
13th Huddersfield The Warehouse
14th Hull The Piper Club
Box Office Number 0844 477 2000/www.ticketweb.co.uk
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. Richard comments: “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.” Fred adds: “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. Both are distributed by Universal.
