Shed Seven have announced their biggest ever UK tour to date for November and December 2019 including a home county show at Leeds First Direct Arena – their first ever headline arena show!
The York five-piece just get bigger and bigger. Since rising to fame in the 90s as one of the leading lights of Britpop, Shed Seven released their first new album in 16 years 'Instant Pleasures’ in 2017 which went top ten and achieved acclaim across the board.
The tour which also marks the 25th anniversary of their first album release will feature a mix of Sheds classics and choice cuts from Instant Pleasures including fan favourites ‘Room In My House’ and ‘Better Days’. Rick Witter said:
'We can’t wait to get back out on the road later this year to play some of our favourite venues and visit some brand new places. It’s always been the bands ambition to play an Arena show and we are absolutely thrilled that finally we are getting to do this in our home county Yorkshire!! See you at the front.'
Nineties Brit-Pop group Shed Seven who, fronted by the unmistakable vocals of Rick Witter, brought us hits such as Going For Gold, Chasing Rainbows and Getting Better. Shed Seven formed in York in 1990, out of the ashes of Brockley Haven, they were one of the groups which contributed to the Britpop music scene of the 1990s, but they never received the degree of mainstream success achieved by the likes of Oasis and Blur. The band officially split up in 2003 but reformed in 2007 for a greatest hits tour, and have since continued to play shows around Britain periodically.

Reverend And The Makers
Fusing indie rock melody and attitude with dance rhythm, Reverend And The Makers is the brainchild of Sheffield musician Jon McClure, who recorded the original RATM demos with members of the Arctic Monkeys and Bromheads Jacket. The group uses a combination of indie rock, electro and funk to complete their signature sound.
