Van Susans Go North With The South (formerly Beautiful South)
aaamusic | On 10, Feb 2012
Spring 2012 sees Van Susans head north for a seven date tour with national treasures The South (formerly The Beautiful South). This series of gigs is followed with the Van Susans headlining Proud 2 (O2 Arena) days before the release of their brand new single Bricks Not Sticks Or Straw taken from the forthcoming album Paused in the Moment.
The tour covers all the main cities in Scotland and the North East and sees The South promoting new single The Entertainer and other tracks from their forthcoming album. This is the first release from the 15 million selling reformed giants of pop.
For Van Suasns vocalist and songwriter Olly van Andrews, the opportunity to play alongside his former idols is the chance of a lifetime; “Beautiful South are constantly on my playlist. Song For Whoever is always first choice for my Karaoke slot on a Thursday night in my local.”
Following a year of sell out gigs that included 100 Club, IndigO2 & Clapham Grand the Van Susans are hot to get aback on stage with fresh material from their forthcoming album. The tour will set Scotland alight as the band continue their wave of success that saw debut EP We Could Be Scenery supported by 6 Music’s Chris Hawkins & XFM’s Steve Harris, whilst also receiving a plethora of press attention and airplay from over 30 radio stations.
Dates for the tour are selling fast. Get your tickets while you still can. Cost £20 to £24 and available via The South’s website www.thesouth.co.uk.
