With the Coronavirus Pandemic putting a stop to Live music around the world for most of 2020/21, it is with a huge sigh and with many fingers crossed that The South return to touring and perform the songs of that great British pop institution, The Beautiful South!
The South are an impressive 9-piece band who feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles. Since Dave Hemingway, the original singer, left the group at the end of 2016, Gaz has moved across to front the band with Alison and taken on vocal duties.
The band bringing back the full sound and arrangements of treasured songs – A Little Time, Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Song For Whoever, Old Red Eyes Is Back, Good as Gold, Don’t Marry Her plus many more singles and album tracks as well as a few choice South originals.
The South will play Cardiff’s Globe on August 22, 2021.
