Speaking of the tour in an Instagram post, Witter shared: “This tour is our way of saying thank you to all our incredible fans, both old and new. So whether you’ve been with us from the beginning or are just discovering/re-discovering our music, we would love you to join us for what will be an unforgettable celebration of 30 years of Shed Seven. Don’t miss out on what will be the best Shed Seven tour ever.”

Shed Seven’s most recent release was their sixth studio LP ‘A Matter Of Time‘. Witter recently told NME: “I think it’s gonna be a big year for us, starting with the release of our brand new album in the first week of the 30th anniversary of our debut ‘Change Giver’. If you’re a Shed Seven fan I think you should buckle up because you’re gonna be in for a good ride. And if you’re not a fan, find a big rock and hide behind it.”

The band recently earned the Number One spot on the Official Albums Charts with ‘A Matter Of Time‘.They also made history as the British rock group with the longest gap between their debut album and first Number One album.
