The Parlotones announce November 2011 UK tour - tickets on sale Friday 27th May
You may have seen The Parlotones at the opening ceremony for last year's FIFA World Cup, held in South Africa. You could be forgiven for viewing them as a token South African contributor, overshadowed by global names like the Black Eyed Peas and Shakira, but you couldn't be more wrong.
When they played the prestigious Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg as part of their recent world tour, they became the first South African band to headline the 19,000 capacity venue. A fitting end to a 300-date global tour.
Formed in 1998 and with a rock-steady, four-piece line-up ever since, The Parlotones have released four studio albums, a number of live records/DVDs and, curiously, a series of South African wines bearing the band's song titles.
In 2009 there was a red named 'Giant Mistake', a 2010 white called 'Push Me to the Floor' and most recently, a rosé bearing the title 'We Call this Dancing'. Seems to work. Maybe other bands will follow suit. I think we'd all fancy a glass of 'Bat Out of Hell'.
Following a series of late 2010 dates, The Parlotones are returning to these shores this November for four dates starting at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on Wednesday 9th November. A breathless four days see the band then visit Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham before going for a lie-down and a glass of wine.
Tickets are on sale at 9AM on Friday 27th May, priced from £12.50 (£15 for London).
