Markus Feehily has been confirmed as the special guest for the upcoming Wet Wet Wet Big Picture Tour, which will be taking place at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre’s (AECC) GE Oil & Gas Arena on 13th March 2016.
Markus rose to fame as one fifth of Westlife, with the band’s 14 year career seeing them sell over 50 million records worldwide, achieve 14 number one singles in the UK and 26 Top 10s.
Markus, who launched his solo career earlier this year and saw his debut album Fire chart at number two in the charts, said: “I remember listening to Marti Pellow’s voice and being really inspired. It’s a pleasure to go on tour with Wet Wet Wet and I can’t wait to sing in the arenas again”.
Wet Wet Wet front man Marti Pellow added: “Markus has a great voice and as he’ll be performing a selection of Westlife and solo material, we’re in for a real treat. Anybody coming along to the shows is bound to have a great time”.
Wet Wet Wet were the first act to play at AECC to open the centre as a concert and entertainment venue in March 1990. Since coming to prominence in 1987 they have played to over five million people across the globe and sold over 15 million records whilst notching up over thirty UK chart hits including three number ones. Alongside this incredible success, performing amazing live shows has always been at the heart of what Wet Wet Wet do.
AECC’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Louise Lonie, commented “Markus has performed at AECC numerous times with Westlife and this is a great addition to what will already be a fantastic tour. We can’t wait to have him back in Aberdeen and hear his solo material live.”
