Fans of the 90s boyband East 17 may have the best Christmas ever this year as the group announced they will sing on the doorsteps of residents in Bury - and for free.

In a unique and exclusive tour for people in Greater Manchester and London, residents can book East 17 to make an appearance at their front door.

Equipped with their iconic white puffer jackets, the trio will perform a personal rendition of their UK Christmas classic and number one hit, Stay Another Day.

The hit track entered the UK charts in 1994 and is known for beating Mariah Carey's hit single for three weeks in December, selling roughly 410,000 copies.

The week before Christmas, the boy band's sales took the lead over Mariah, being around 60,000, and therefore locked in as the 1994's Christmas number one.

Now, almost 30 years later, devoted fans can book the band to serenade them from the comfort of their own home.

Tickets, which have been brought by Ring, are completely free and are up for grabs until 12pm tomorrow (Friday, December 15).

Performances will be taking place on December 18 across Greater Manchester between 9am and 5pm.

Ticket holders will be contacted ahead of the day to be given a precise slot that the band will be stopping by on the day.

In anticipation of the big day, East 17 said: "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."

The lucky few who manage to book a slot with the band will also win a free Ring Battery Video Dootball Plus and a lifetime subscription to Ring Protect.

Ring said the doorbell is designed for "easy installation" and allows residents to answer the door "wherever you are, right from your phone", so you never miss a delivery, a visit from a guest or a song from your favourite boy band.

Ring will also be spreading "the festive cheer" far and wide this December with social giveaways taking place on its Instagram channel.

Dave Ward, managing director EU and international at Ring, said: “Ring is all about connecting people back to their homes and helping capture all those special moments that you wouldn’t want to miss, whether that be your pet causing mischief, friends or family popping round, or East 17 getting you into the festive spirit.

"We’re delighted to play our part in holiday celebrations, offering our customers safety, convenience and peace of mind at this hectic time of year.”
