It’s time to practice line dancing and prepare for a Summer of Love as Steps head to Doncaster - and the band can not wait.
The group, made up of Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer and Ian “H” Watkins, are going on tour in 2018.
Faye said: “We are really excited to come to Doncaster. We love the audience up north because they are always the best audiences.
“Lisa’s husband is also from Doncaster so we do love a bit of Donny.”
The group will be performing at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium in June, alongside other noughties favourites Blue and Aqua.
Their hits included ‘5,6,7,8’, ‘Summer of Love’, ‘Deeper Shade of Blue’ and ‘Stomp’.
Faye said that the hand are pleased to have stayed true to the upbeat sounds that first saw them shoot to fame in the late 90s.
“When we started to create new music we didn’t want to lose what Steps are all about and just conform to what is in the charts now.
“We wanted to make good pop songs that people can dance and sing along to, and that’s what we have done.”
New songs include ‘Scared of the Dark’ and ‘Neon Blue’.
Faye added: “What is really exciting is that we have a new album - Tears on the Dancefloor - and we also have an incredible back catalogue of songs too, but that means it’s been really tough to choose a set list.
“We have been looking at what our fans have said on social media about what songs they want to hear to help us decide what to sing.
“So, fans can expect to hear some of our biggest hits and our new songs, and there may also be a couple of surprises.”
