The Pretty Things - final bow concertA reminder for you, in case you are free in mid-December and within reach of the O2 Arena in London: 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 UK 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 promises to be quite a show.

They play this final performance, at Indigo at The O2 on 13 December 2018. Tickets went on sale in May, but unexpectedly there are still some available, via AXS.com.
