Reformed 90s hit makers M People are in Glasgow next week, joined by Lighthouse Family frontman Tunde Baiyewu.

After an eight-year break, the Mercury Prize-winning group kicked off a massive UK arena tour on Thursday and perform at Clyde Auditorium on Thursday, October 24.

The Greatest Hits Tour has been organised in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of acclaimed album Elegant Slumming, which featured the hits One Night In Heaven and Moving On Up.

Lead singer Heather Small said undergoing an operation on her vocal cords last year made her determined to get back on the road with the group.

She said: “I had to have an operation to remove a growth from my vocal cords last year and I don’t think many people knew that. I was told I couldn’t speak for six weeks.

“I decided I owed it to myself to sing a lot more than I had been after the operation. I guess the thought of my voice being taken away made me think.”

Doors open at 6.30pm and tickets costing £25-£55 are available by calling 0844 395 4000 or visit Ticketmaster
