The Bluetones make a welcome return to the live forum with their first tour in four years that starts on 16th September at Leeds 02 Academy and culminates on 27th at Bristol's 02 Academy and includes a London date at the Forum on 24th.
The band, which were a huge part of the Brit Pop era, were always an engaging and dynamic live outfit. Fronted by the enigmatic Mark Morriss, they had an impressive run of hit singles that included the 'Bluetonic', 'Slight Return', 'Marblehead Johnson', 'Solomon Bites The Worm', 'If' and 'Keep the Fires Burning'. Their live shows brought the West London four-piece an army of devoted followers worldwide.
The band's members are Mark Morriss on vocals, Adam Devlin on guitar, Scott Morriss on bass guitar, and Eds Chesters on drums. The band scored thirteen Top 40 singles and three Top 10 albums in the UK charts.
Glastonbury, Top Of The Pops, The Bluetones did the lot and toured with everyone from Radiohead to Bruce Hornsby & The Range.
Finally, after playing more than 10,000 shows in more than 73countries, they're back for more.
The Bluetones are promising a sensational set of shows this Autumn as they plunder their incredible body of work one more time, playing their most popular songs. If you miss them this time, it may be a lifetime before you get another chance.
I would certainly say Pub in the Park is up there with one of best things I have ever done, the atmosphere and buzz over those 3 days was just electric and I felt so lucky to be a part of it all. All in all, we served around 4000 dishes over the 3 days, the most popular being the Mackerel Taco which sold out on each session, I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd though as they were all willing to try the other dishes we had to offer. One of my favourite moments had to be that I got to celebrate my birthday which was on the Sunday In such an incredible way, meeting a huge amount of kind and wonderful people as well as watching The Milk who are one of my favourite bands.
Last year’s Pub in the Park festivals were so much fun, I can’t wait to bring excellence in food, world class chefs, ace music and an awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK this year.
