Bass guitarist Graeme Clark said “We’ve been working on new material as well as looking into the archive and we’re looking forward to playing plenty of songs from Picture This to commemorate its anniversary alongside many other favourites.
Keyboard player Neil Mitchell said “Playing live for the fans is so important to us and we’re delighted to have booked shows all over the country and then some on this tour”
Drummer Tommy Cunningham said “We always put on a spectacular show and it will be no different this time around as amongst a few other surprises, we’ll have massive screens on stage to fit right in with the Big Picture theme”
