Pop icons Steps to bring comeback tour to Belfast

By Joe Nerssessian

Pop group Steps will celebrate 20 years since they formed with a comeback album and UK tour that includes a concert in Belfast.

The five-piece have teamed up with members of Abba for new record, Tears On The Dancefloor, which marks their first studio album since 2012.

Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus from the Swedish superstar band supplied Steps with album track Story Of A Heart.

The group, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer, Ian 'H' Watkins and Lee Latchford-Evans, announced their comeback in a Twitter video. They said: "As you know it's our 20th anniversary year and we've promised loads of fun things.

"So to kick it off we've got a new album. We're also going to be touring up and down the country in November and December."

Steps will play the SSE Arena in Belfast on November 14. Tickets go on sale this Friday from 9am.

The band added their first single from the album, Scared Of The Dark, will be out on Friday.

The five-piece came together following an advert in The Stage entertainment magazine in 1997 looking for a new band.
