Complete list of Steps' UK singles

 
Steps in 1999 1999
Tragedy was the first number one single of the year and stayed in the Top 40 for a total of 16 weeks, selling over one million copies!

By now, Steps were probably the most popular band in the UK and were compared to names like the Spice Girls and Abba!

In July they toured America with pop princess Britney Spears and in October embarked on their own Next Step UK tour.

It was a sell out, with over 350,000 people going to see them live.

It also won them a place in the record books as the biggest tour the UK had ever seen!

Next came their second album, Steptacular, which entered the chart at number one, selling 250,000 copies in just three weeks.

By now they had had over eight number ones worldwide and received countless awards.

They were also the only band to have achieved such global success in such a short time except for the Spice Girls.
