Wet Wet Wet

Story by Jack Foley

GLASWEGIAN pop chart-toppers Wet Wet Wet are to perform at all five Hard Rock Cafes around the UK at the end of October as part of Hard Rock’s Rocktober concert series.

Wet Wet Wet join popular bands like Lil Chris, Nerina Pallot, Ross Copperman and Ghosts in playing the Hard Rock venues in support of The Caron Keating Foundation.

Just ahead of their Decemebr tour of the UK, Wet Wet Wet will kick off their Rocktober shows at the Hard Rock Cafe Edinburgh on October 22.

The group will then visit Manchester, Nottingham and Cardiff before hitting the stage of the flagship Hard Rock Cafe in London’s Old Park Lane on November 1.

Hard Rock’s Rocktober, which started in Europe in 2005 and grew into a global campaign, brings some of the world’s best live music to small and intimate surroundings.

The series of events support local breast cancer charities across the world, and proceeds from each event throughout the month goes to the chosen charities.

This year, Hard Rock Cafes in the UK will donate proceeds to The Caron Keating Foundation, which offers financial support to professional carers, complimentary healing practitioners and support groups dealing with cancer patients, as well as individuals and families who are affected by the disease.

Wet Wet Wet frontman Marti Pellow said: “We’ve visited many a Hard Rock Cafe during our travels, usually for dining though and not performing!

“We don’t often get a chance to play in venues where we’ll be able to see the whites of the audience’s eyes, so we’re really looking forward to doing these shows ahead of our big arena tour in December. Here’s hoping we can rock hard and help raise some money for such a great cause.”

Founder of the foundation, Gloria Hunniford, added: “I’m so thrilled that Hard Rock Cafe has chosen to support the Caron Keating Foundation. We’re very much a family run organisation, and we have all in our working lives been involved in the music industry.

“Caron used to present a television rock programme as well as hosting occasionally Top of the Pops, and I know, she would truly approve of ‘Rocktober’ and how many people dealing with cancer will be helped through your efforts in raising money, in her name.”
