There have been many similarities drawn between Steps and ABBA over the years.
But unlike the Swedish superstars, Steps has vowed to keep performing until they sing Tragedy on mirrored mobility scooters – because holograms are a bit too expensive.
The group is celebrating 25 years together and will spend the summer performing at festivals.
And they think they still have a long time to go. “We joke about a zimmer frame tour,” laughs Lee Latchford Evans, 47, but Claire Richards, 44, went a better way, locating “complete mobility scooters full of crystals and stuff” at a posh pharmacy in West London.
“They would be perfect for us,” she said, adding that a veteran touring could prove complicated with their routine. “Our core program is based on dance. I would love to stay in such a fit and active body in my 70s. ”

ABBA – those in their 70s – spent £140m producing their ABBAtar show, developing their own high-tech hologram and building an arena in East London for them to perform, which which Steps admits may be a bit too steep for them.
“I’m not sure the sales are there,” Claire laughs. “It is cutting edge technology, the first of its kind. It will become more popular. We’ll do it when it’s cheaper.”
Lee added: “If we have enough money to do that, I’d rather take the money, thanks.”
Steps released a new Greatest Hits album with two new songs, The Platinum Collection, on August 19.

Liam Gallagher I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! because he’s so scared of bugs, he thinks they’ll need to pay him a fortune to show up.
“I’m like a bag when it comes to spiders and things like that, man,” he told LADbible. “I don’t like scary things. They will have no money. They didn’t have the budget to put me in there.
“I will not do that. I’d rather just walk in the street and beg, you know what I mean…if I need money. ”
Let’s put him down as a certainty.
Rockers Kiss has taken over a fleet of buses backstage at Download festival, arriving at their Friday night location at Donington Park in four separate cars.
A little space is probably just what the group needs, after 5 decades together as a band.
Paul Stanley, 70, admits of band member Gene Simmons, 72: “There was a time when I wanted to smack him in the head. But Gene has softened – he’s gotten weirder, like a crazy uncle. ”
The group has stated that their current tour will be their last.
