Steps

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.
