We all know that Christmas isn’t Christmas until our favourite festive tunes are blasting on repeat wherever we go. For generations of Brits, Stay Another Day by 90s boy-band East 17, is a seasonal staple that conjures the Christmas spirit the moment it drifts across the airwaves. So, what better way to bring even more Christmas cheer to homes around the UK than to deliver a live performance of this iconic song direct to your doorstep?
That’s right, this year Ring are reuniting East 17 with an exclusive tour of UK doorsteps, where the band will perform their chart busting hit for some lucky fans. Fur-lined puffer jackets and white gloves optional.
Entering the charts in 1994, Stay Another Day quickly rose to number one, selling roughly 410,000 copies that December and beating Mariah Carey to the top spot. An essential Christmas track, it graces the playlists of pubs, office parties and radio stations across the UK every year.
“It never gets old performing a song that means so much to us, especially around Christmas time, where Stay Another Day really took off. We’re so excited to hit the road with Ring to perform to several of our fans, right on their doorstep!”, East 17 told us.
If you live in London or Manchester, then you can apply for a doorstep serenade by East 17 through Design My Night and enjoy Stay Another Day live and in person, without even leaving the house!
