They have sold more than 15 million records worldwide and now Wet Wet Wet have been confirmed to headline this year’s Rasen Rocks.
The annual event at Market Rasen Racecourse is one of the area’s most hotly anticipated music events - and Wet Wet Wet look set to draw record crowds.
The band, who have just completed a hugely successful 12-date greatest hits tour, will take to the stage on Saturday, August 16.
And the racecourse’s general manager Pip Kirkby is excited already.
She said: “Rasen Rocks has grown to become one of the most popular musical events in Lincolnshire over the last few years.
“We are thrilled to welcome Wet Wet Wet, as they follow in the steps of McFly, The Vamps and James Morrison who have wowed the racecourse crowds.
“This booking is a coup for Market Rasen and I’m sure tickets will be snapped up in big numbers by music fans.”
Wet Wet Wet have been entertaining fans with their music for a quarter of a century and remain as one of the UK’s most loved and bestselling bands ever.
The quartet of Marti Pellow, Tommy Cunningham, Graeme Clark and Neil Mitchell had huge international success and spent 15 weeks at number one in Britain with their Love is All Around cover, which featured on the soundtrack to the film Four Weddings and a Funeral.
The band has produced some of the most famous and timeless songs of their generation, including Wishing I Was Lucky, Sweet Little Mystery and Goodnight Girl.
Late last year they released Step By Step – The Greatest Hits, described as a ‘celebration of the band’s most popular songs’.
Rasen Rocks tickets have just gone on sale today, starting at just £23 for adults and £8 for children. Visit marketrasenraces.co.uk or call 0844 579 3009.
