The Pretty Things - final bow concert

After 55 years of live performing, The Pretty Things - the iconic, 1st wave, R&B cult heroes, formed by ex-Rolling Stone Dick Taylor, and singer, Phil May - will retire from electric performances at the end of this year.

With a huge history of musical and cultural "firsts" at their core - the “longest hair in the world”, first ever rock and roll drugs bust, most arrests of any band, first ever "garage" single, first ever rock-opera, first U.K. band to win Rolling Stone Record of the Year, arrested for discharging a sawn off shotgun, first band to regain full control of its entire recorded catalogue and so on...

With such influential work as their ground-breaking masterpiece and world's first rock opera S. F. Sorrow, which celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, they remain a hugely significant artistic and creative force. They are now calling it a day on the road, and playing their final ever live show at the end of the year.

This farewell show - in London - will feature guest appearances from significant old friends David Gilmour, Van Morrison and Bill Nighy and some new young gunslingers to make sure they go out like they came in - with all guns blazing and taking no prisoners.

They play their final performance at Indigo at The O2 on 13 December 2018. Tickets go on sale this morning, Friday May 25th, at 11am, via AXS.com.
