THE Stylistics - the iconic American soul band - are looking forward to full houses when the four-piece harmony group come to Merseyside and Cheshire later this year.

The much-anticipated shows are part of an extensive 25-date UK tour stopping at Warrington Parr Hall on November 20 and culminating with a concert at the Philharmonic Hall on November 30.

They are all thrilled that they are able to share decades of magic moments and memories featuring timeless ballads from their distinctive contribution to the famous 'Philly Sound.'

They will be performing their chart-stopping 1970s classics such as Can't Give You Everything (But My Love) - a UK number one hit/ Fans will also be treated to a night of musical nostalgia when they perform other Stylistics favourites including I'm Stone in Love With You; You Make Me Feel Brand New; Sing Baby Sing; Stop , Look Listen, Let's Put It All Together and You are Everything.

The charismatic group are of the best-selling Philadelphia groups of all time, with Gold and Platinum albums throughout their illustrious career.

They have also been immortalised with a plaque on the Walk of Fame in 1994 in their home city of Philadelphia.

And twenty years ago the stylish singers were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.

The Grammy nominated group, speaking in perfect harmony, sent a special trans-Atlantic message to their followers ahead of their rare Autumn visit.

''We are excited and can't wait to connect with our loyal UK fans once again through the power of music.
