The Chords Tour Dates
Part of the mod revival of the late seventies, The Chords were spotted by Paul Weller at a gig at The Wellington Pub in Waterloo. Supports with The Undertones, The Purple Hearts, The Jam & Secret Affair followed. Jimmy Pursey of Sham 69 signed them to his own label before they moved to Polydor. A tempestuous couple of years followed, with lead singer duties being taken over by ex-Vibrators front man Kip. The band called ita day in 1982. They were one of the more successful groups to emerge during the revival, and they re-formed with the four original members for a UK tour during 2010. More recently in Spring of 2012, Buddy, Chris and Bill reformed and played gigs in London, Tokyo and Australia. The Chords tour dates listed on Ents24.com since May 2010.
