Formed in 1988 The Beautiful South had a string of hit singles such as Old Red Eyes Is Back, Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, Song for Whoever, You keep it all in, I’ll sail this ship alone, Perfect 10, 36D, We are each other 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 20 years, ten studio albums, five greatest hits compilations, thirty-four chart singles, 15 million record sales worldwide and performing in front of millions of fans, when time was called on The Beautiful South in 2008, not everyone was ready to leave the party.This band has history and pedigree. Dave Hemingway’s musical career stretches back into the Eighties. He became a founder member of The Beautiful South after the demise of The Housemartins, who had enjoyed a sustained purple patch and many hits before calling it a day in 1988. Whilst bassist Norman Cook went on to become superstar DJ FatBoy Slim, Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway proceeded to form the new band in December 1988. Right from the off, The Beautiful South seemed to defy the normal logic associated with pop bands, not least for the fact that they stayed together for 20 years.
The Southstars, from 11 Fan reports
Whitley Bay - Whitley Bay Play house
The South from Carol1703, 17/11/14Fantastic night, The South were out of this world. The atmosphere was electric. The Playhouse staff were very helpful and friendly too, the whole place was clean and tidy through out. Would defiantly visit this venue again and of course see The South again too .
Near Newcastle upon Tyne - Whitley Bay Playhouse
Great sound and performance from Brian Archer, 17/11/14The South played all the best known Beautiful South tracks and we thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The supporting act, Tristan Mackay, was very average though and unworthy of the main act. Also we were disappointed that the Whitley Bay Playhouse allowed customers to take alcohol into the auditorium. The all pervading smell of stale beer did detract slightly from the enjoyment and fuelled a lot of loud comments . However the performance made up for it.
High Wycombe - Wycombe Swan Theatre
fab night from Harris family, 10/11/14Had a really great time, great venue. Staff very friendly and helpful. Band was better than I thought they would be.
