The band will headline Scarborough Open Air Theatre in July.
Claire Richards is known for being one fifth of ’90s chart-topping pop band Steps, but now she is set to go solo as she has announced the release of her brand new solo album, My Wildest Dreams, due to be released on Friday 2 November 2018.
To celebrate the release, the star will play four intimate shows around the country this December. She will kick things off in Glasgow on Sunday 2 December 2018 before heading to Birmingham, Liverpool and London.
Last Monday, she debuted the lead single, On My Own, which tells the story of the ups and downs she has experience throughout her life including the pressures of being in the public eye. The song has received huge praise and support, including from her Steps’ band mates.
