Wet Wet Wet have confirmed Ben McKelvey will open their Big Picture Tour at 3Arena tonight
Ben McKelvey has been likened to Bruce Springsteen, The Clash and Paul Weller. His passionate performance and lyrical storytelling has captivated audiences across the UK and beyond: Taking in hundreds of solo dates since 2011, he also toured the USA in the summer of 2014, and was an invited guest of the national Open Mic UK competition and played iconic venues such as Shepherd’s Bush Empire whilst supporting The Janoskians.
Markus Feehily rose to fame as one fifth of Westlife, with the band’s 14 year career seeing them sell over 50 million records worldwide, achieve 14 No.1 singles in the UK and 26 Top 10s.
Markus, who launched his solo career earlier this year and saw his debut album Fire chart at No.2 in the charts, said: "I remember listening to Marti Pellow’s voice and being really inspired. It’s a pleasure to go on tour with Wet Wet Wet and I can't wait to sing in arenas again".
Tickets priced from €44.05 including booking fee are on sale now from ticketmaster outlets nationwide and online from ticketmaster.ie.
The 17-date tour reaches as far south as Plymouth and as far north as Inverness whilst covering all of England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland, giving fans all over the country the chance to see Wet Wet Wet play live. The tour coincides with the 20th Anniversary of their huge No. 1 album Picture This which included the hits Julia Says, Don’t Want to Forgive Me Now, Somewhere Somehow, She’s All On My Mind, Morning and of course Love is all Around.
Two special formats of the album have recently been released to mark the anniversary: ‘The Big Picture Super Deluxe 3CD + 1 DVD’ and ‘Deluxe 2CD edition’
Wet Wet Wet have sold over 15 million records whilst notching up over thirty UK chart hits including three No.1’s.
Alongside this incredible success, performing amazing live shows has always been at the heart of what Wet Wet Wet do. Since coming to prominence in 1987 they have played to over 5 million people across the globe.
