Preparations are well underway for Steps’ most ambitious tour yet, with Party on the Dancefloor kicking off in Belfast on 12 November.
The group have recorded video and material for the arena tour and have been hard at work rehearsing modern twists on classic dance routines.
Costumes, as ever, will play a huge part in the tour. Steps have been working closely with stylist Frank Strachan and let’s just say that a celebration of their 20 years wouldn’t be complete without a trip into their wardrobes…
And that anniversary means Steps fans are going to be treated to some absolute classic songs – not just the hits you’d expect, but some very special re-imaginings as well as some songs the group have never performed live before!
There’s now an additional five new songs to potentially throw into the mix, with the release of Tears on the Dancefloor: Crying at the Disco Deluxe Edition. In fact, the digital edition has a mammoth 24 tracks, including remixes of album tracks
Happy and I Will Love Again.
The new album is also available as a limited edition double Glitter and Gold vinyl, as well as individual signed CDs by each member of the group.
Once again the album returned to the number one spot on iTunes through pre-sales alone.
The video for Dancing With a Broken Heart made it’s debut exclusively on Apple Music on Monday 9 October, also shooting straight to the number one spot.
However it was Scared of the Dark’s turn to shine again, when the group gave an extra special Halloween performance on Strictly Come Dancing’s results show on 29 October.
Talk has already turned to plans for 2018, with hints of special live dates still to come…
There’s also more talk about that ‘second album’ of material, so don’t be surprised at all for even more new material.
