Steps to play Isle of Wight gig

Pop group Steps - who reformed earlier in the year - are to head to the Isle of Wight to perform a major show on the island next summer.

The band, made up of Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer, and Ian "H" Watkins, will be playing at Osborne House on July 28th.

Steps will be travelling to the Isle of Wight to perform at the venue as part of a series of summer shows at the former holiday home of Queen Victoria.

John Giddings, organiser of Osborne House Summer Concerts, stated he is pleased to team up again with organisations such as Green Eye Events, Riverside Productions and English Heritage for the gig.

He said: "We are proud to continue the tradition bringing great artists to the grounds of Osborne House and are thrilled that pop sensation Steps are on the bill."

Many of the UK dates announced by Steps - who split in acrimonious circumstances a decade ago - have already sold out, which could mean fans look to book Isle of Wight holidays in order to see the act play live on the Isle of Wight.

Steps were one of the biggest pop groups of the 90s and had massive hits with tracks such as Tragedy, which went to number one in the UK in 1998.

They also topped the charts with Stomp and had success with songs including Love's Got a Hold On My Heart, Better Best Forgotten, Better The Devil You Know and 5, 6, 7, 8.

H and Claire then went on to leave the band and form a duo after a series of rows with the other three singers in the group, but the five members got back together earlier in the year for a lucrative television programme and subsequent gigs.

They are set to play shows in locations such as London, Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Sheffield, as well as the Isle of Wight.
