Wet Wet Wet are a Scottish pop-rock band from Clydebank, consisting of frontman Marti Pellow, guitarists Tommy Cunningham and Graeme Duffin, drummer Tommy Cunningham, bassist Graeme Clark, and keyboard-player Neil Mitchell.
Formed in 1982, the band released their debut album, ‘Popped In Souled Out’, in 1987, which hit #2 in the UK Albums Chart. ‘The Memphis Sessions’, followed in 1988, and also hit the Top Three, as did ‘Holding Back the River’, released in 1989. Their fourth album, ‘High on the Happy Side’, came out in 1992 and reached the top of the chart, and was paired with ‘Cloak & Dagger’, which came out four days later. Their sixth album, ‘Picture This’, also hit the top spot, and featured the #1 single, Love Is All Around. The band released ‘10’, in 1997, before disbanding. They returned in 2004 and released the album, ‘Timeless’, in 2007.
The band have headlined their own shows and tours across the UK. In 2014, they toured UK racecourses, and in May 2015, they play a show at London's KOKO, in celebration of their long-standing relationship with the Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy charity. The band celebrated the 20th anniversary of their album, 'Picture This', in 2016, as well as a show as part of Live At Chelsea in June.
Wet Wet Wet have announced plans to tour the UK in spring with new vocalist Kevin Simm. The former Liberty X member and winner of the 2016 series of The Voice joined Graeme Clark, Tommy Cunningham and Neil Mitchell in September after original singer Marti Pellow departed last year to focus on his solo career.

Birmingham was one of the best I have seen and I have been to every concert they have played in the Midlands from the very first one when they were supporting Lionel Richie. The music still sounded as fresh as ever. There was a lot of old favourites plus some new songs which are as good if not better than previous hits. I am looking forward to the new releases. The highlight for me was the acoustic section and the way that Marti interacted with the audience. The lowlight was the 2 women sat behind me that talked in very loud squeaky voices all the way through the concert.
