Steps made their return to the stage with a bang this weekend at Brighton Pride!
The British pop group, consisting of Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer, and Ian 'H' Watkins, had the thousands-strong crowd singing and dancing along to all their hits.
Their performance marked their only UK show of 2023, and they ensured it was one fans would remember by donning matching white costumes jazzed up with rainbow accessories.
Lisa, 47, wowed in a cropped purple jacket and knee-high boots, while Faye, also 47, stunned in a bodysuit with sheer pants. Claire, 45, and her powerhouse vocals took centre stage with her hot pink jacket and rainbow streamers and Lee, 48, was busting out all the iconic choreography in a sheer shirt.
However, all eyes were on H, 47, as he caught everyone’s eye in his vibrant ensemble. The Tragedy hitmaker showed off his gym-honed physique with a pair of tiny shorts and a glittery corset, as well as a stunning pearly Vivienne Westwood necklace.
The band performed over an hour of their hits, including Love’s Got A Hold On My Heart, Neon Blue, 5, 6, 7, 8, Heartbreak In This City, and more. They also threw in some covers of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s Rain On Me and Sam Smith’s Unholy.
The showstopper was the band's final song, Scared Of The Dark, which they used to close the set in spectacular fashion, leaving the crowd with a night to remember.
Following their performance, fans had nothing but praise for the band, with one Twitter user writing: ‘Steps just challenged Britney for best Brighton Pride headliner’.
The band was also joined by Zara Larsson and Black Eyed Peas, who had their gig thrown into chaos due to technical issues.
Unfortunately, this epic performance marked Steps’ last show of the year. Last month, Claire Richards promised anxious fans that although they were playing Brighton Pride, they would be taking a break after that.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: ‘At the moment, everyone’s just concentrating on individual stuff, which is nice and it works for us when we do that.’
Although the future of Steps is uncertain, we can still be optimistic about what their solo projects have in store for us.
And for now, we’ll just have to watch the performance on repeat and remember the good times!
