The Pretty Things reveal farewell tour

The psychedelic outfit are throwing in the towel after 55 years. 

After over half a decade of live performances, The Pretty Things are hanging up their mics for good, but not without one last hurrah to see them off. They'll be wrapping up in true style, with a London show this December featuring the likes of Van Morrison and Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, though they'll be squeezing in an Australian stint first. 

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of their album, S. F. Sorrow, The Pretty Things will be playing the album in full on stages across the country. Not only will the band be making a highly anticipated return to Australia, but they'll be visiting Brisbane, Perth, Geelong and Adelaide for the first time ever, as well as delivering performances in Sydney and Melbourne. 

The Pretty Things' influence on the psych scene is irrefutable, with Gilmour himself citing their 1970 album Parachute as an influence for Dark Side of the Moon, the same album receiving Rolling Stone magazine's first ever Album of the Year. This will be your last ever chance to catch them live too, so don't miss out. 

The Pretty Things hit Thornbury Theatre on Saturday October 6, The Caravan Club on Sunday October 7 and The Tote on Friday October 12. Tickets are on sale from 10am Friday July 20.
