It is with great pleasure and excitement to confirm that singer/songwriter Ben McKelvey will be supporting Wet Wet Wet on their ‘The Big Picture Tour’ for 2016.With lyrical honesty and classic melodies, Ben has been likened to Bruce Springsteen, The Clash, and Paul Weller. His passionate performance and storytelling has captivated audiences across the UK and beyond.

Ben has performed hundreds of solo dates since 2011, embarked on a USA tour in 2014, he was an invited guest of the National competition Open Mic UK, and played iconic venues such as the Shepherd’s Bush Empire supporting The Janoskians.

His most recent EP ‘Everything You Were Meant To Be’ has received critical acclaim, and he is now ready to hit the road with Wet Wet Wet…
