Well known for their massive hit, ‘Love Is All Around’, from one of the most successful UK movies ever, Four Weddings And A Funeral, Scotland’s Wet Wet Wet are celebrating the 35th anniversary of their first album release this year.

With their hit albums and singles including ‘Sweet Little Mystery’, ‘Angel Eyes’, ‘Goodnight Girl’, ‘Julia Says’ and of course, ‘Sweet Surrender’, the band have featured in the official UK singles and album charts for over 500 weeks, spending 15 weeks at the top with Love Is All Around itself – a record for any UK artist that still stands.

Having played to more than four million people around the world including a record-breaking 10 sold-out shows in one year at the SEC in Glasgow, the band have built a reputation as one of the best live acts ever produced by the UK. The band’s latest album, 2021’s The Journey, is their first in over a decade and having last toured Australia all the way back in 1995.

Wet Wet Wet are thrilled to be finally coming back to reconnect with their old fans and looking forward to making new ones who will experience them for the first time.

Joining Wet Wet Wet will be Ben Lee and emerging artist Gaudion. Ben Lee has been one of Australia’s most successful singer songwriters of the new millennium. Cigarette’s Will Kill You and Catch My Disease have been radio staples for years and his 2006 smash, We’re All In This Together became an unofficial Aussie anthem during the pandemic. Never one to take himself seriously, Ben is in it for the good times. A prolific collaborator, Ben has worked with too many artists to mention, runs a podcast network and even directs movies!

Gaudion will impress you with his charisma energy and zest for life which are embodied in his music as he continues his mission to spread happiness everywhere!
Gaudion is nominated for Breakout Artist of the Year at the upcoming Gold Coast Music Awards and his unique style is influenced by the likes of Van Morrison, Ed Sheeran, James Reyne and Tracy Chapman.
