They’re the band responsible for some of the biggest chart hits of the 1990s and armed with a slew of timeless singles (‘Deep’, ‘Stay Another Day’, ‘West End Girls’ and the No.1 smash ‘It’s Alright’) and some brand new tunes, those likely lads from Walthamstow are headed down under for a series of long-awaited live shows.
East 17 burst onto the music scene in 1992 with the feisty classic ‘House Of Love’. It reached No.5 on the ARIA singles charts, paving the way for another eight top 20 hits, the last of which (in 1996) was a duet with Gabrielle on a reinterpretation of the Shai single ‘If I Ever Fall In Love’ (‘If You Ever’).
Their latest album is entitled ‘Dark Light’. Featuring the lead single ‘I Can’t Get You Off My Mind (Crazy)’, the long player was given a global release through their new label FOD Records earlier this month and is therefore awaiting your discovery in our local iTunes store.
The band now comprises Tony Mortimer, John Hendy and Terry Coldwell, with founding member Brian Harvey no longer a part of the E17 line-up.
The trio have locked in dates in all five major centres, kicking off with a show at the Metropolis in Fremantle on June 07. Tickets for all are on sale this Friday, April 27.
