Fans can relive the sounds of British pop institution, The Beautiful South, as former members tour the UK as The South, making stops at every point on the compass on their way to Lynn.
Performing at Lynn’s Corn Exchange next Thursday, November 6, the group are fresh off the back of a busy summer spent touring the country and playing and festivals.
Now the band are looking forward to finishing the year by visiting places they have never played before, bringing with them a combination of classic Beautiful South hits and music from their own debut album.
Once in a while, a band appears that strikes a chord with many. Their music becomes an integral part of a nation’s psyche and the soundtrack to many people’s lives. Ingrained in the hearts of many is one such band, the Beautiful South. Over three decades this band became a household name, selling over 15 million albums.
When The Beautiful South split in 2006, several members of the band were not quite ready to let it go. Two years later, singers Dave Hemingway and Alison Wheeler, alongside lifelong members Damon Butcher, Gaz Birtles and Tony Robinson came out of retirement and formed the nine-piece band, The South.
Now those classic songs live on. Songs such as A Little Time – the band’s number one single – Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Old Red Eyes, Good as Gold, Don’t Marry Her. All performed again live, as they have been doing since 1989.
The South now have their debut album under their belt, a self-financed labour of love. Sweet Refrains unveils their own brand of irresistible pop melodies laced with twists of caustic wit.
With a marathon 64 gigs this year, there’s life in the old dogs yet! Their rich tapestry of music is wooing audiences far and wide, as they continue to receive ovations from all corners of the UK. With both old and new tunes that stand the test of time, experience this amazing live band performing great songs from Sweet Refrains and classics that can never be forgotten.
