Sparks - Two Hands, One Mouth Tour
Sparks announce an extraordinary tour that will see them deconstruct and reinterpret songs from their own extensive and unique catalogue.
For the first time, Ron and Russell Mael will tour as a duo using just voice and keyboards, a typically bold and unexpected move from the American brothers.
Having inspired musicians and delighted fans throughout the years with their extraordinary songwriting and inimitable style, Sparks’ live shows have become increasingly spectacular - in 2008 they performed all 21 albums in 21 nights in London and in 2011 their 22nd opus 'The Seduction Of Ingmar Bergman' was performed as a live musical at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
Now, forty years since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972, they will present a selection of Sparks songs in their purest form. Stripping away the often lavish production we will rediscover the essence of Sparks, - the whipsmart, penetrating lyrics, those incomparable melodies – Russell's vocals and Ron's keyboards coming to the fore. All that's needed.
