AFTER a successful 2015 which saw The Parlotones complete three successful tours of South Africa as well as a tour of Europe, the band is heading around the country for a series of concerts titled The Parlotones Orchestrated.
It will see the band take their hits to venues across the country together with a chamber ensemble which has been arranged and will be conducted by composer and acclaimed musician, Brendan Jury.
