The gift that keeps on giving
As thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks.
Renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt.
Brandishing a shiny brand new CD Welcome To The Second Half, the magnificent, craggy ensemble of heavenly singing male bodies return to the UK in 2019, ever more comfortable with their whimsical humour and musical breadth – a winning spectrum of Georgian songs, pindrop-beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers, and immaculate man anthems.
Their last UK tour saw a large number of sell-out concerts at major venues and a whole raft of ecstatic festival audience reactions. You must see them. Really, you must.
“Inspired – and a triumph of choreography! Catch them on the road – a fantastic night out is guaranteed!”
MARK RADCLIFFE, BBC RADIO 2
“Highly theatrical, they veer from weird to touching and back again. Grown up entertainment in the best, most infantile way. Don’t miss an opportunity to see them”
