Formed in 1988, The Beautiful South had a string of hit singles such as Old Red Eyes Is Back, Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, Perfect 10 and 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 One and staying there for weeks, becoming one of the country’s most popular albums ever.

When time was called on The Beautiful South in 2008, not everyone was ready to leave the party.

Dave Hemingway and Ali Wheeler, formed the The South with mainstays from the original touring band and are continuing to tour and perform, armed with a sensational back catelogue of Beautiful South hits, plus plenty of new material from their new album, Sweet Refrains.

The South are at Sheffield City Hall on Friday, 13th June at 7.30pm.
