When great British pop institution, The Beautiful South split in 2007, some members of the band didn’t feel ready to hang up their microphones or instruments and so The South was born, featuring former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles.
Since original singer, Dave Hemingway, left the group at the end of 2016, Gaz has now moved across to vocal duties. They play the songs made famous by The Beautiful South and bring back the full flavour and excitement with the nine-piece live band.
With the new reshuffle complete, The South are a full team again and raring to go! They are now back out on tour for Spring 2018 with two dates in South Wales confirmed for March and April.
Both shows will feature classic Beautiful South songs including the number one hit, A Little Time, Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Old Red Eyes Is Back, Good as Gold and Don’t Marry Her.
Following on from their successful Autumn 2017 UK Tour, The South are back on the road this Spring.
