  1. I know it was just a typo but now my brains run off thinking This Heart Will Start Again could be interesting mashup with an acoustic of Heartbreak In This City (“my heart starts beating”)

    That would be interesting if the lyric wasn’t “my heart stops beating”…

    Some of you guys don't half enjoy setting yourself up for disappointment.

  5. Ahh shit yeah haha brain fart

    Oh I don’t expect it for a second - like I’d love an ANTI tour but I know it’s not happening

  6. I'm hoping this too and I unashamedly love Words of Wisdom as well! I would be absolutely thrilled with a sit down acoustic gig - no dancing necessary for this one. (Claire would love that too)

    I’ll be surprised if the Leeds gig even goes ahead. If it does we certainly won’t get anything different than what they’re doing on the current “tour”, they won’t have time to rehearse anything. Before they were together all the time on a tour, this time they’re just together for the shows themselves so won’t have time to prepare different songs in between shows.

  8. Mfor Festival in Swindon has been postponed to July 2023, this was one of the meet & greet dates as well.

    This "tour" gets better and better doesn't it?!

  10. It's a tough world out there. The 2021 tour was a hard enough sell, going into 2022 the casuals may have already seen Steps recently (and perhaps previously in 2017/18) so there will be less incentive to go. Add to that the cost of living squeezing the overheads, the ticket sales and rumblings of a COVID resurgence and it's no wonder these festivals are falling like flies. I definitely think there's scope to celebrate in different ways, perhaps "intimate" dates closer to Christmas but with three of them in panto I'd guess that's unlikely.

    In happier news, I've just booked the London meet and greet and asking the cosmos to please not cancel this one!

    I know, it's a real shame that things like this are happening. Not Steps' fault at all! Just a difficult time for everyone.

    Can't see Steps doing it in 2023. This was the one with James Arthur as well wasn't it?
    Let's wait and see how many more are cancelled...

  13. I know the date at The Oval had been rebranded, but didn't clock that the Milton Keynes date is showing under 'It's the 90's Baby' too now.

    Probably makes it more likely these ones will actually go ahead. The Yorkshire Wildlife Park one has sold out gold/silver tickets so I'd say that one will still go ahead and Birmingham Pride obviously. Who knows about the rest.

  15. Legit cant cope. Hastings was postponed so I just bought MFor tickets this morning!!!

  16. Thing is, this one is different as we got the album CD ‘included’ with it, so they can’t cancel it as they’ll have lost the payment for the cd and also that would affect sales figures

    These cancellations were bound to happen, the festival market was bloated pre-covid, everyone was doing a festival, and there were so many every summer, none bar the big legacy ones were selling out.

    Now we've had covid and they're all trying to get back going again, but now their costs have gone up and people's expendable income has gone down, so the demand for 900 festivals on every weekend between May and October has dwindled.

    Kinda wish Steps had saved themselves and done their own arena tour later this year/early 2023.

    The OCC don't remove refunds from chart sales. Its not like its a huge number of units that'll make much difference.

    This. They should have just done Hoopla and maybe B'ham Pride then done like 10 dates early 2023.
    I understand these Summer gigs were to get more casuals on board/streaming/buying the Platinum collection but it's not turning out that well. Least they'll get a decent cheque for the gigs that actually go ahead.

    I imagine Steps' management is being refunded with all those festival being cancelled.

    Even a theatre tour would've sufficed, at least there's a bit more security in their own dates.
