(source info via DRW Entertainment) – After 55 years of live performing, The Pretty Things – the iconic, 1st wave R&B / psychedelic cult heroes, formed by Ex-Rolling Stone Dick Taylor and singer Phil May – will retire from electric performances at the end of this year when they play one final show in London on December 18 with special friends including Van Morrison and Pink Floyd’s Dave Gilmour.
Unbelievably, Australia has lucked out and will be witness to some of the band’s final performances. And it may have taken them half a century, but The Pretty Things will be performing for the first time ever to Brisbane, Adelaide, Geelong and Perth audiences. Of course, Sydney gets a show (supported by Pretty Things fans Tumbleweed), and there’s three Melbourne shows including a one-off performance of their landmark Abbey Rd. psych classic, S. F. Sorrow.
Local legends – and massive Pretty Things fans – including Tumbleweed, Sand Pebbles and The Living Eyes are onboard to help us send them off.
