Wet Wet Wet will introduce Australia and New Zealand to a new lead singer when they tour in May 2020.
Original singer Marti Pellow initially quit the band in 1999 to deal with addiction. Pellow rejoined the band and was involved on the last album ‘Timeless’ in 2007. He also featured on the new songs on the 2013 ‘Greatest Hits’ album but in September 2018 the band announced new singer Kevin Simm from Popstars boyband Liberty X had joined the band.
Wet Wet Wet’s first hit in Australia was ‘Sweet Little Mystery’ in 1987.
The first Top 10 hit in Australia for Wet Wet Wet was ‘Sweet Surrender’ in 1989.
The big one was the cover of ‘Love Is All Around’ for the movie ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’.
Tommy Cunningham said “We’re really looking forward to revisiting all the cities we’ve been to before and catching up with old friends, whilst at the same time getting to see some new places and making new friends.”
