It’s an excit­ing moment when we hear of new work… and a tour by Sparks. Endur­ing­ly bril­liant, Sparks return this year with a tour, so be ready on your key­boards (with your cof­fee) very soon… 

Hav­ing pre­vi­ous­ly announced 2 nights at London’s Roy­al Albert Hall and 3 per­for­mances at Pri­mav­era Sound Fes­ti­val in Spain and Por­tu­gal, Sparks announce a run of dates in Europe, North Amer­i­ca and Japan.

Start­ing in Oxford on May 23rd and run­ning through to July 25th in Tokyo, the tour will see the band play some of the largest venues of their 50+ year career. The venue for the home­town show in Los Ange­les will be revealed soon. Speak­ing about the announce­ment Ron and Rus­sell Mael said:

“We are thrilled to be back on tour again and to be able to share our joy with so many Sparks fans around the world.  See you all soon! It’s a Sparks show, a Sparks show, a Sparks show tonight!”

The tour announce­ment fol­lows the recent news that the band have re-signed to Island Records, the label that released their aston­ish­ing break­through record Kimono My House in 1974, for the release of their 26th stu­dio album. Described by the band as a record that is “as bold and uncom­pro­mis­ing as any­thing we did back then, or for that mat­ter, any­time through­out our career” the new album, The Girl Is Cry­ing In Her Lat­te, will be released on May 26th.

Tick­ets go on gen­er­al sale Fri­day, Feb­ru­ary 3rd at 10AM.
