‘Blue’ band to visit Mongolia

By B.Anu

World-famous English band and Brit award winner “Blue” will come to Mongolia. The “Blue” band, which is well-known by their “All Rise,” “Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word,” and “Fly by” singles, will give a concert in Ulaanbaatar upon the invitation of the “EVENTO” company. The concert, where “Blue” will sing their hit songs, will take place at the Central Stadium on September 14.

On February 26, 2013, their London concert was scheduled to be held in the “Hammersmith Apollo” theater for only one time. But the concert tickets were sold out after only two minutes. Their producer then decided to organize a world tour instead.

Producer and media magnate Simon Cowell put the band together with Lee Ryan and Anthony Costa in 2000. With Duncan James and Simon Webbe joining, the band was officially formed. They released their debut single “All Rise” in May 2011 and it reached number four on the UK chart. Their “Too Close” single peaked at number one on the UK chart for seven weeks. Their album “All Rise” sold over 1.8 million copies in the UK. “Blue” split in 2004 to concentrate on their solo careers only to reform in 2011 and return onstage.

The band also worked alongside artists such as Stevie Wonder, Elton John, RedOne, and Bruno Mars. They released their fourth studio album “Roulette” on January 25, 2013. The band has sold over 13 million records worldwide.
