British music stars M People are staging an anniversary tour to mark 20 years since the release of their hit album Elegant Slumming.

The Moving on Up hitmakers' second studio record hit stores in 1993 and went on to win the following year's (94) Mercury Music Prize, and now the group is to tour the U.K. for a series of shows to celebrate the disc's success.

Lead singer Heather Small says, "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."

The 14-date tour kicks off in Manchester, England on 10 October (13) and ends in London on 27 October (13).
