Wet Wet Wet have announced a six date Scottish tour, which will kick off at P&J Live in Aberdeen.
The band, which includes Graeme Clark, Tommy Cunningham, Neil Mitchell and Kevin Simm, will visit the north-east on November 2 and will be the first act to play in Hall C.
They will then head to the Highland capital to take to the stage at Ironworks on November 10.
The announcement comes nearly three decades after Wet Wet Wet officially opened the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) back on March 3, 1990.
Since then the band has been no stranger to the north-east, having played at the Tarlair outdoor swimming pool in 1994, at the AECC on numerous occasions, and previously headlined Aberdeen’s Hogmanay celebrations in the city centre in 2006.
Graeme Clarke said “We can’t wait to get about out on the road.
“For us, there’s nothing like coming back to Scotland and playing to the best fans in the world.”
And Tommy Cunningham added: “This is an exciting time for Wet Wet Wet.
“Our fans have been incredibly supportive over the past couple of years and we’ve been blown away by their reaction to Kevin joining the band.
“We wanted to come back home and play these shows as a thank you for the support the fans have shown us.”
Wet Wet Wet’s decision to play P&J Live follows the announcement Michael Buble would be playing at the venue on two separate dates, and the news the Brick Live festival and the UK’s first World Clydesdale Show would be using the venue as their base.
Opening this summer, the £333 million development is being delivered by Aberdeen City Council in partnership with Henry Boot Developments and will replace the AECC with 48,000 square metres of event space, conference and exhibition halls, a main arena and a high-end restaurant.
Louise Stewart, head of entertainment at P&J Live said: “We love to welcome back gigs to the north-east and are feeling especially nostalgic that Wet Wet Wet are our first gig in Hall C, after being our first at AECC in 1990.
“Wet Wet Wet are a great band and always loved by audiences worldwide, so we’re sure they’ll be well-received by north-east fans later in the year.”
General tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday June 28 from pandjlive.com.
