Overtones celebrate anniversary with Worthing and Bexhill dates
The Overtones have announced a UK tour to celebrate their tenth anniversary, including a date at Worthing’s Assembly Hall on November 25 and Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion on November 28.
Spokeswoman Gemma Cutting said: “Since bursting onto the UK music scene ten years ago, The Overtones have racked up platinum record sales, released six studio albums, sold out tours across the nation and performed for The Queen, firmly establishing them as one of UK’s most popular live acts best known for their exquisite vocals and distinctive style.
“Despite previously headlining some of the most prestigious venues including The London Palladium and The Royal Albert Hall and achieving stand-out performances at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and singing to one million people at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, The Overtones feel there’s still so much more to achieve and plan to mark their tenth anniversary by making more memorable moments during 2021.
“Mark, Darren, Jay and Mike have mastered the perfect mix of originality with classic nostalgia, and combined with their charm and perfectly-timed dance moves and their perfectly-pitched harmonies, their effortless performances and style have helped deliver their sell-out successes across the globe during the past decade.
“Having experienced loss, parenthood and a new line-up during this time, the multi-talented foursome have never been closer and continue to perfect their craft for their fans.
“In 2019 the group welcomed new member, Jay James who also became a household name after working with musicians like John Legend and becoming a finalist on The X Factor. 2019 also saw the start of an exciting new era for the boys who went on to sell out their tenth consecutive UK tour.”
Jay said: “2021 is all about bringing back the feel-good and that’s what The Overtones do best.
“As we celebrate the past, dance in the present and sing for the future, we are so excited and blessed to give The Overtones family their best night yet!”
Like many other acts, 2020 meant cancelled tours and releases for The Overtones, but with a newly recharged band and an excitement of what’s to come in their anniversary year, the group can’t wait to be back on the road in 2021 – whenever the finally get the chance.
Mark Franks said: “We can’t wait to finally get to sing, dance and party together with you all, in 2021, on our ten-year anniversary tour.
“It’s been a long time coming and there really isn’t no party like an Overtones party!”
