Boyband EAST 17 To Perform in Worthing this Christmas


The Factory Live have announced that on Monday 19 December they will be welcoming boy band East 17 to Worthing for a festive party with a host of special guests on the line up, including Mark Read from 90s group A1.
Formed in 1991, chart-topping boy band East 17, named after the postcode of their hometown Walthamstow, were one of the UK’s most popular boy bands during the early to mid-1990s.

In that time the group achieved eighteen top-20 singles and four top-10 albums. They sold over 18 million albums worldwide and have been certified with sales of 1.8 million albums and 2.4 million singles in the UK alone.

Their biggest hit “Stay Another Day” was the Christmas No 1 in 1994 and they scored twelve top 10 hits between 1992-1998 including “House Of Love”, “It’s Alright” and “If You Ever”.

Since then East 17 have performed at Glastonbury Festival and they continue to headline tours with the likes of Atomic Kitten, S Club 3, Liberty X and Blazin Squad.

The Line Up consists of Original member Terry Coldwell, Former Artful Dodger collaborator Robbie Craig who’s been a part of the group since 2014 and Joe Livermore.
Mark Read, who joins the line up as one of the special guests for the evening, rose to fame as part of British-Norwegian boy group A1 in 1998. Their debut single, “Be the First to Believe”, entered the UK Singles Chart at number six. They achieved UK chart success in the late 1990s and early 2000s scoring two number ones with “Take On Me” and “Same Old Brand New You” as well as six other top 10 hits. Managed by Tim Byrne, who formed the group STEPS, they also won the BRIT Award for best “British Breakthrough Act”.

Stephen Sheldrake of The Factory Live said “What better way to celebrate Christmas than with one of the most iconic boy bands of the nineties. ‘Stay Another Day’ is a classic Christmas tune that’s on every festive playlist and the band also has a string of huge hits for us to enjoy. Adding Mark Read to the line up was perfect too, he’ll be taking time out from the Worthing panto to perform A1’s most popular hits as well as a few festive favourites for us too! We’ll also be adding more special guests with a host of local talent from comedians to singers to get everybody well and truly ready for the Christmas holidays.”
