Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, band member Lee said: "We’re overwhelmed with the response and everything that’s been going on. We've had a number one album and now we're going out on tour. it's fantastic."
He went on to say that the best thing about being back together is the fact that they are all friends again.
Steps' Ultimate Tour kicks off on Monday April 2nd in Belfast, with the group returning to Manchester's Evening News Arena on Tuesday April 10th and Tuesday April 26th.
Furthermore, those visiting Manchester this festive season could go to the city's Christmas markets between Thursday November 17th and Wednesday December 21st.
