The Pretty Things

After 55 years of live performing, The Pretty Things—the iconic, first wave R'n'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 18 December with special friends including Van Morrison and Pink Floyd’s Dave Gilmour. Special guests Melbourne R'n'B Champs The Breadmakers.

Unbelievably, Australia has lucked out and will be able to 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.
