Off the back of yet another amazing year sharing their music with fans both locally and internationally, The Parlotones are set to cap off the year by embarking on The Parlotones Summertones Tour 2017. The tour will see them travel to some of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations and the date set for the Wild Coast Sun is December 27, 2017.

Since they first launched onto the South African music scene, The Parlotones have rocketed to success; winning several awards, achieving multi-platinum album-selling status, packing out venues for live concerts and enjoying loads of airplay on local radio.

It was their album, Radiocontrolledrobot, that really catapulted them to stardom. It won “Best Rock Album” at the 2006 South African Music Awards and the ballad, Beautiful, was used in an Irish Fujifilm television advert. This led to a European licence deal with Universal Music. The album achieved Gold Status in 2007. That same year, they released their third album, A world next door to yours, which went on to become South Africa’s biggest selling rock albums of the decade.

The Parlotones have shared a stage with a number of well-known international and local artists including Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Blue October, Freshlyground, Stardust Galaxies, and Zolani Mahola.

The Parlotones appear at the Wild Coast Sun at 20h00 on December 27, 2017. Fans will be treated to yet another evening of Parlotones magic, energy, enigma and sing-alongs from their chart topping hits. Tickets R200 available at Computicket.
