Shed Seven have confirmed a concert date at The Forum Hertfordshire as part of their extensive UK tour in December.

The acclaimed five-piece indie rockers and festival regulars will be returning to the road to perform their greatest hits and fan favourites, including singles Going for Gold, Disco Down and Chasing Rainbows.

They will be stopping by the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane venue on Tuesday, December 8.

The Sheds have achieved great success since they burst onto the emerging Britpop scene in 1994, releasing four albums and scoring 14 top 40 singles.

Last year Universal Music re-released enhanced versions of the band’s three albums for Polydor, once again bringing their 90s output into the spotlight.

Since getting back together in 2007 for a massive 20-date tour, Rick Witter, Paul Banks, Tom Gladwin, Joe Johnson and Alan Leach have continued to sell out shows across the UK.

Frontman Rick Witter said: “After a great run of festivals last summer we are excited to be hitting the road again for what has become a biennial tradition for the band.

“And don’t bother checking, it’s definitely biennial, not biannual.”

The York group’s special guests will be legendary Manchester band Inspiral Carpets, who last year released their first new album in 20 years.

Rick added: “This time round we’re welcoming special guests Inspiral Carpets.

“We last played together on a short UK tour 21 years ago.

“It should be a good one and after all, to those in the know, Christmas just isn’t the same anymore without a Sheds tour in December.

“See you at the front in a venue near you.”

Tickets for Shed Seven’s December UK tour go on sale on Friday, February 27 at 9am.
