A band featuring the original members of The Beautiful South are set to perform at Harpenden’s Public Halls.

Over three decades the band became a household name, selling over 15 million albums. The Beautiful South had a string of hit singles such as Old Red Eyes Is Back, Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, Perfect 10 and number 1 single, A Little Time.

Their greatest hits album, Carry On Up The Charts, was one of the fastest selling albums in UK history, entering at Number 1 and staying there for weeks, becoming one of the country’s most popular albums ever.

After disbanding in 2007, original members Dave Hemingway and Alison Wheeler went on to form The South and with mainstays Damon Butcher and Gaz Birtles – keyboards and brass since the very beginning of The Beautiful South.

They have gained a fanbase of their own right over the last two years, during which time they have been touring and performing at festivals.

The performance will combine Beautiful South hits such as Perfect 10, A Little Time, Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, You Keep It All In and album tracks as well as original songs from their debut album Sweet Refrains.

The South may not be so Beautiful anymore, but that doesn’t seem to matter.
