After a successful couple of years touring the UK and playing Festivals, The South look forward to playing live shows in 2016. The combination of Beautiful South hits and album tracks as well as original songs from their debut original album, Sweet Refrains has hit a pleasure nerve around the country.

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. The Beautiful South's music is ingrained in the hearts of many. Over three decades this band have become a household name, selling over 15 million albums.

On disbanding in 2007, original members Dave Hemingway and Alison Wheeler went on to form The South together with mainstays Damon Butcher and Gaz Birtles (keyboards and brass since the very beginning of The Beautiful South). This talented nine piece continue to celebrate the music of The Beautiful South and, indeed, The South.

With one highly acclaimed album 'Sweet Refrains' under their belt, The South are ramping up a gear for a higher national and international profile with the help of their agent Dan Silver at Value Added Talent. The South's rich tapestry of music is wooing audiences far and wide, as they continue to receive acclaim from all corners of the UK. People keep coming back again and again on the very same tour, so the South must be doing something right !

Want a brilliant night out? Want a moment of euphoria as old memories flood back and new ones are formed?

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: including Perfect 10, A Little Time, Rotterdam, Don't Marry Her, You Keep It All In, Old Red Eyes Good as Gold and 36 D, to name some of the widely known songs.

You'll be surprised at how many songs you already know! Isn't it time you headed South?
