Bellowhead - Thats All Folks - Wolverhampton Civic Hall: Wednesday 25th November



 
Formed, just for fun in 2004 they never imagined that one day they’d be headlining festivals and selling out tours of major concert halls. From their first  self-released EP, Bellowhead have gone on to record 5 studio albums of which they have sold over 250,000 copies. Hedonism, their 3rd album, was recorded at legendary Abbey Road and is the highest selling independently released folk album of all time. They are proud recipients of 2 silver discs, have won 8 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, released a songbook with Faber, spent 8 years as Artists in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre, recorded theme tunes for The Archers and The Simpsons at the request of the producers, and brewed their own beer... Twice! In 2014 the band signed to prestigious major label Island Records and released Revival, which entered the UK Album Charts at no.12 and led to 3 BBC Radio 2 play-listed singles and appearances on mainstream TV.
 
The band said ’It’s in keeping with all the musical and theatrical traditions that make Bellowhead what it is, that we will end at our peak and leave the audience wanting more. The shows always finish on a high, and so should we.’ Bellowhead have performed in front of hundreds of thousands of people and their sheer joy of performing and infectious energy has earned them loyal and enthusiastic audiences, who have made this big party juggernaut all worthwhile. These two tours will be the last chance for people to see one of the most outstanding live bands ever.
