Northsound has secured the services of Marti Pellow and his bandmates for a special private concert for 100 listeners. The Wet Wet Wet gig marks a return to Aberdeen for the group after appearing at the city’s Hogmanay celebrations last year.
It was announced this morning during the breakfast shows that their select show at city centre bar and restaurant Enigma, in The Academy shopping centre, will take place on Tuesday, October 23.
Marti and drummer Tommy Cunningham also appeared on John Mellis’ show on Northsound 1 last week, which included their upcoming single Too Many People.
Northsound’s Programme Director Chris Thomson said: ”We are delighted to be bringing Wet Wet Wet to Aberdeen for this exciting concert that is exclusively for our loyal listeners. The band went down a storm at their first Hogmanay gig in Aberdeen and we are looking forward to this chance to see them perform some of their best known hits and new material at such close quarters.
“This is the latest fantastic music event to be brought to the North-east by Northsound, on the back of the hugely successful Free 2007 concert which was enjoyed by more than 30,000 fans just a couple of months ago.”
Wet Wet Wet are one of Scotland’s most successful bands and were formed in Clydebank in 1982.
