Parlotones rock in Durban

2009-12-11 00:00

FRESH from a recent world tour, The Parlotones will be playing live at Krakatoa at Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom on December 27 and 28.

This immensely popular indie rock band made history last month with a sellout show at Johannesburg’s Coca Cola Dome — the first South African band to headline at the venue.

The band’s new album, Stardust Galaxies, was released at the end of October and went gold within a week and platinum within a month. The track Push Me To The Floor is receiving extensive air play and charting on radio stations around the country.

Known for electric performances, The Parlotones merge innovative­ ­ideas and sounds, creating a whirlwind of energy and rock that makes them one of the best live acts in the country.

Consisting of front man Khan Morbee, drummer Neil Pauw, guitarist Paul Hodgson, and Glenn Hodgson on bass, keyboards and backing vocals, The Parlotones have shared the stage with Evanescence, Violent Femmes, Kings of Leon, UB40, Collective Soul, Staind and New Model Army, among others.

Heralded as South Africa’s top-selling rock band, with an ever-growing fan base around the world, The Parlotones also have numerous awards ­under their belts, including a 2009 Sama Award for Best Music Video of the Year.

Supporting the band will be CrashCarBurn and The Black Hotels.

Doors open at 7 pm and the show starts at 8 pm. Tickets are R150 at Computicket or at Regret, no under 18s.
