Never miss another 'Sparks' show
The Revenge Of Two Hands, One Mouth Tour : Sparks
Sparks announce an extraordinary tour that will see them deconstruct and reinterpret songs from their own extensive and unique catalogue. For the first time, Ron and Russell Mael will tour as a duo using just voice and keyboards, a typically bold and unexpected move from the American brothers.
Having inspired musicians and delighted fans throughout the years with their extraordinary songwriting and inimitable style, Sparks' live shows have become increasingly spectacular - in 2008 they performed all 21 albums in 21 nights in London and in 2011 their 22nd opus The Seduction Of Ingmar Bergman was performed as a live musical at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
Now, forty years since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972, they will present a selection of Sparks songs in their purest form. Stripping away the often lavish production we will rediscover the essence of Sparks, - the whipsmart, penetrating lyrics, those incomparable melodies - Russell's vocals and Ron's keyboards coming to the fore. All that's needed.
Expect the set list to include This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us, Never Turn Your Back On Mother Earth, Something For The Girl With Everything, Dick Around and more!
This event takes place at O2 Academy Bristol, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Quirky and innovative '70s art popsters whose chart hits include 'This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us', 'Wonder Girl', 'Number One Song In Heaven' and 'Beat The Clock'. Never suffering from writer's block or work shy, the busy brothers Ron and Russell have in recent years written and composed a pop opera, teamed up with Franz Ferdinand to form the supergroup FFS and their career has seen them produce over 20 albums including 2017's 'Hippopotamus',
