Steps have added an extra date in Belfast as part of their comeback tour, it has been announced.

The tour is part of the group's 20 year anniversary since they formed and have a comeback album and UK tour.

As well as their November 14 appearance, they will now play the SSE Arena on November 12 with special guests the Vengaboys.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday at 9am. 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."

The band added their first single from the album, Scared Of The Dark, was released on Friday.

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