Right Said Fred have long been known for their irreverent pop songs with the tongue in cheek lyrics that you can’t help but sing along to – and for years have both delighted and entertained people around the world with their selflessly wicked sense of humour.

But you see a completely different side to the men behind the band when it comes to the social issues affecting teenagers in Britain today.

Genuinely horrified by the statistics that there have been 5,500 serious knife crimes in the UK in just 3 months - and that the worst case projections indicate that 60,000 young people may be stabbed, injured or worse in the next 12 months, Fred says thoughtfully “We were violently attacked on the streets of Moscow while the Police watched with amusement. Coming back home to the UK really made Richard and I appreciate and cherish the relative safety of most of our London streets. Having lived in London since the early 1980’s it’s only now that we feel a real threat to this relative safety………… we must not let knife crime win.”

“We are delighted to be involved with the tour and are looking forward to taking the band out to a youth audience."
