Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

The Parlotones to give a free concert on a Virgin Atlantic flight on Sunday 30 March
This is just AM-AZING! Multiplatinum, award winning South
African rock band The Parlotones will launch their new album 'Stand Like
Giants' with the world's first 'on board' performance on Virgin Atlantic flight
VS602 from Johannesburg to London on Sunday 30 March. Virgin Atlantic
passengers will be the first to experience a concert on board an airplane and
will also be able to make song requests and be serenaded in their seats as the
band work their way through the cabins meeting fans. Virgin Atlantic President
Sir Richard Branson said: 'Music is in the Virgin DNA, so we're really excited
that a hugely successful band like The Parlotones will launch their album live
on board a Virgin Atlantic flight. Throughout this airline's history we have
looked for innovative and entertaining ways to give our passengers the very
best flying experience, and an acoustic concert at 37,000 feet is definitely
true to that pioneering spirit.' Described variously as 'South Africa's answer
to Coldplay' by The Independent; 'SA's answer to Radiohead' by The Guardian, in
truth they offer 'Impassioned, stadium-ready indie-rock of a superior kind'
[The Mail on Sunday]. The Parlotones are known for their incredible concerts and awesome music!
