The band announce the intimate Small Is Beautiful Tour

Song For Whoever, Perfect Ten, Rotterdam, Don't Marry Her, You Keep It All In, Old Red Eyes Is Back, the list of hits is almost daunting and The South are bringing their music back to the nation. Dave Hemingway and Ali Wheeler [lead singers with The Beautiful South along with departed songwriter Paul Heaton] loved the songs and life on the road too much to just muse on past glories, and so The South was formed. Now the band are delighted to announce an intimate series of headline shows across the UK in February and March 2012 - tickets are on sale 21 October 2011, priced from ?18 - ?22. The Small Is Beautiful tour is a great chance for lovers of this truly classic British Pop band to reconnect with the musicians and the music once again.

Joining Hemingway and Wheeler are fellow mainstays from the original band: keyboard wizard Damon Butcher and the potent horn section of Gaz Birtles and Tony Robinson that brought so much to the live shows. On top of a slew of classic singles, the band are also working in some brand new material.
