Reunited pop sensations Steps proved they still have what it takes to get the crowd on their feet at Osborne House (28 July).
The five-strong group belted out hit after hit, delighting the audience with favourites including ‘Better Best Forgotten’, ‘Deeper Shade of Blue’ and ‘Here and Now.’
A number of new twists and sounds added to the set, which ended with a rousing performance of what is perhaps their best known hit, a cover of 70s Bee Gees hit ‘Tragedy’, complete with obligatory dance moves.
The stunning location of the Durbar Lawn at Osborne House was the perfect backdrop for the gig, with band member ‘H’ (Ian Watkins) later telling fans on Twitter that the audience had been “amazing” and that he “could live on the Isle of Wight…it’s just beautiful!”
Earlier in the evening, crowds had enjoyed support bands Concrete House, Vanquish and Kamaliyan with entertainment between from Isle of Wight Radio presenters Paul Topping and Stuart McGinley.
