Steps have an exciting announcement…
STEPS have revealed they will play five extra stadium gigs due to popular demand — but they’re not so keen on giving Eurovision a go.
The 90s five-piece shared the news this morning when chatting with Fearne Cotton, who is sitting in for ITV’s Lorraine this week.
‘We’ve got something really exciting to tell everyone about the tour,’ said Claire Richards.
‘Because the reaction has been so incredible and so amazing, we are adding five extra shows.’
She added: ‘Touring is always our thing. It’s the one thing we knew we wanted to get to.’
But when asked if the band might be keen on entering the iconic song contest, the reaction was muted.
H said he’d love to do it and Claire agreed she loved the ‘idea of it’ but was put off by the UK’s track record.
‘I don’t think we’d really want to add [Eurovision] to our legacy,’ she added.
The band also revealed they will be creating the video for their new floor-filler Scared Of The Dark this week.
The track has already briefly knocked Ed Sheeran off the iTunes top spot and is still sitting pretty in the top ten.
