Set in the grounds of the breathtaking Osborne House, the three-storey royal seaside villa overlooking the Solent will open to the public and will play host to a two night concert that sees British pop sensation Steps on stage on the 28 July. Dust off your dance moves as Steps is back! After a break of 10 years, the multimillion selling pop band have reunited and will be bringing their household catchy lyrics and dance routines to the Isle of Wight. Singles such as “5,6,7,8”, “Tragedy”, “One for Sorrow” and “Deeper Shade of Blue” will take fans down memory lane and show just how Steptacular they really are! John Giddings, organiser of Osborne House Summer Concerts and the Isle Of Wight Festival, is thrilled to have teamed up again with Green Eye Events, Riverside Productions and English Heritage to put on this unique weekend.
"We are proud to continue the tradition of bringing great artists to the grounds of Osborne House, Queen Victoria would be proud of us…."
The stunning 19th century English Heritage location of Osborne House, set in 1000 acres of lush greenery, has proved to be a fantastic setting for the last four years. English Heritage is once again delighted to be hosts. Tickets on sale now, visit www.osbornesummerconcerts.com (Tickets may be subject to a booking fee).
