20th Anniversary Greatest Hits Tour: M People + Tunde
Mercury prize winners M People have announced a massive UK tour in celebration of their 20th anniversary since release of acclaimed seminal album 'Elegant Slumming' and as a full live band. Their first full tour in eight years sees Heather Small, Paul Heard and Shovell take on 14 dates across the country including a massive show at Manchester Arena.
The band's first album, the acclaimed 'Northern Soul', was released in 1992 and was hailed as one of the best dance albums of that year, including their first top 10 single 'How Can I Love You More'. It wasn't until the band's line up was complete in 1993 with the addition of percussionist Shovell that M People went onto win a Brit Award and the prestigious Mercury Music Prize with their second album 'Elegant Slumming'.
M People's third album, 1994's 'Bizarre Fruit' stayed in the UK chart for two and a half years and saw the band win another Brit Award. A few years later the band produced fourth album 'Fresco'.
M People are quite simply THE ultimate feel good band, and this 20th Anniversary Greatest Hits tour will show just why they hold a long-standing reign of popular dance music.
