M People emerged out of the Manchester club scene in the early nineties and became one of the world's biggest dance acts selling more than 11 million records. With the unmistakable voice of Heather Small joining Paul Heard, Shovell and founder Mike Pickering, M People released 20 top 40 singles, including ten top 10s including Moving On Up, Search For The Hero and One Night In Heaven.
M People's first album, the acclaimed Northern Soul, was released in 1992 and was hailed as one of the best dance albums of that year and spun their first top 10 single How Can I love You More. It wasn't until the band's line up was complete in 1993, with the addition of percussionist Shovell, that M People went on to win a Brit Award and the prestigious Mercury Music Prize with their second album Elegant Slumming.
M People's third album, 1994's Bizarre Fruit stayed in the UK chart for two and a half years, saw the band win another Brit Award and play the main stage at Glastonbury Festival. A few years later the band produced fourth album Fresco' This October will be M People's first full tour in eight years following their Ultimate Collection arena dates in 2005 and sees Heather Small, Paul Heard and Shovell return to Manchester Arena for a massive homecoming show.
Speaking ahead of the shows, Heather said: "I'm really looking forward to getting back on the road with the guys again. It's been eight years since we last toured together and we always have such fun, you can expect a big party on that stage!"
