The band East 17 is embarking on its Stay Another Day – Winter / Christmas Tour and the itinerary includes a gig in Bath in mid-December.
Founded in London in 1991, they take their name from Walthamstow’s postcode. The original line-up consisted of Tony Mortimer, John Hendy, Brian Harvey and Terry Coldwell. They now continue today as the trio of Terry Coldwell, Robbie Craig since 2014 and Joe Livermore since 2019.
East 17 have achieved a total of 18 Top 20 singles as well as four Top 10 albums, selling over 18 million records and realising worldwide success during the mid-1990s. Their 1994 single ‘Stay Another Day’ held the top spot for five weeks and was Christmas Number 1.
They are one of the leading acts of their era, blending RnB, hip hop and pop to create their own distinctive sound. Grittier and definitively real, this can be heard in songs such as ‘Steam’ and ‘House of Love’.
The band is supported on this occasion by pop outfit S Club All Stars and, with double gold-selling albums, by hip-hop group Blazin’ Squad.
Tickets cost £35.10 inclusive of a booking fee. It is worth considering poster printing when it comes to publicising a forthcoming concert or musical event.
East 17’s gig has a starting time of 7.30pm on Wednesday 14th December at The Forum, Bath.
