0

After a break of 10 years, the multimillion, BRIT winning pop band STEPS are back at the top of the charts where they belong. Claire, ‘H’, Faye, Lisa and Lee reunited for a hit TV documentary series on SKY Living and a new Ultimate Collection celebrating their biggest, chart topping hits and featuring brand new bonus track, Dancing Queen. The band is also taking to the road again in April in a spectacular new show, culminating in 2 nights at London’s O2 Arena. STEPS sold 80,000 tickets during the first few hours of being on sale.

And today they are Number 1 in the Official Album Charts; STEPS have now had a Number 1 Album in each of the last 3 consecutive decades.

STEPS said: “We are genuinely shocked. To receive such overwhelming love from our fans in such a positive way is unbelievable and even sweeter the second time around”.

Nick Gatfield, Chairman and CEO of Sony Music UK said: “I’m incredibly proud of the superb marketing job done by Sony CMG – they’ve introduced Steps to a whole new group of fans”.

The Ultimate Collection marks the return of one of Britain’s best-loved bands. From their first hit, ‘5, 6, 7, 8,’, STEPS went on to have 14 consecutive Top 10 singles, an amazing record only beaten by Boyzone (with 17), Oasis (with 18) and The Beatles and Westlife (who had 20). Memorable chart toppers included ‘Tragedy’, ‘Stomp’ and ‘Heartbeat’. Their first album, ‘STEP ONE’ was certified five times platinum, cementing their position as the UK’s biggest pop sensations. Their next album, ‘STEPTACULAR’, featuring smash hits ‘Love’s Got A Hold Of My Heart’ and ‘After The Love Has Gone’, helped the album go four times platinum. In total, across 4 albums, STEPS sold an astonishing 15 million records.
