An intimate evening with The Parlotones


The Parlotones
It has been 10 years since The Parlotones ventured out of drummer Neil's father’s garage and onto hundreds of stages across the world. The Parlotones have shared an extraordinary journey over the last decade and are looking forward to sharing this journey with their fans when they present “This Is Our Story” - an intimate evening of songs and inspirations - live at The Teatro at Montecasino the 3 and 4August. 2012 certainly looks like the end of the world as The Parlotones know it. The year kicked off with an  impressive start when they climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for UNWomen, raised R600 000.00 with one of Neil's paintings in the fight against Rhino poaching and the release of their brand new album "Journey through the shadows" is heading for Gold status in the first month of release. To add to the excitement The Parlotones have been invited by UK Super band Snow Patrol to tour with them in Europe this summer. The Parlotones have been making waves across the globe for some time but it seems that 2012 will be the year it all comes together. With the 27 city headline tour of the USA in full swing, the band's first US single has managed to enter the radio charts with massive support from radio stations across the USA as well as the Alternative iTunes charts in the USA and Rock charts in Germany. The band will play their final US show on the 20th of June and head straight onto Hamburg to join Snow Patrol on a series of dates before completing the tour with their debut performances at some of the world’s biggest festivals across Europe. The band returns to SA in late July and straight into rehearsal for their latest concert theatre production entitled "This Is Our Story." The production will take the audience on a magical ride exploring their songs and delving into the inspirations behind them in an intimate theatre setting at the beautiful Teatro at Montecasino. Taking you down memory lane Kahn, Paul, Glen and Neil will give their insights on what has meant the most to them about the songs that have shaped South Africa's most successful rock band of all time. The band will share the stories behind milestones songs such as Beautiful, Here Comes the Man, Colourful, Giant Mistake, I’ll Be There and countless others which shaped the band over the years. To add to this great production, the show will take on an interactive role by enabling fans to communicate with the band on stage through social media and ask them the questions they would like to know the answers too. Tickets available at Computicket.
