Following their acclaimed sold-out autumn 2011 tour The Overtones announce dates for November & December 2012.  Starting in Carlisle on November 18th 2012 the twenty four date tour will cover the length and breadth of the country from Aberdeen to Portsmouth and Scunthorpe to Cardiff before concluding in Plymouth on December 20th. Having played to a full-house at the London Palladium on their recent tour, The Overtones will return to the capital for a night at the Hammersmith Apollo.

The Overtones have dazzled audiences on their current tour with their flawless performance, winning charm and impeccable style. The five singers, who have learned their craft through years of performing together, stage a pitch perfect show that is, arguably, the most entertaining and enjoyable concert of the year. The amazing audience reaction every night also provided the band with many personal highlights including the tangible frisson of anticipation in the opening sequence, hearing a packed house sing along to their own songs, seeing the aisles of a concert hall become a dance floor, returning to the stage in Glasgow wearing kilts, and even dodging a shower of bras!

"You can't manufacture talent such as this - it sings for itself" - Metro

Having originally formed in 2006, The Overtones have created a unique sound, blending the essence of vocal groups of yesteryear with the best of classic, present-day British pop. One of the biggest success stories of 2011, Mark Franks, Mike Crawshaw, Darren Everest, Timmy Matley and Lachie Chapman have seen their debut album ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’ sell more than 400,000 copies with a peak chart position of number 4. The second best selling debut from a UK group this year, the platinum-certified album was reissued in October with three brand new songs that reflect The Overtones’ pop sensibility and broad contemporary appeal. “It’s an upbeat, comforting recipe that seems to be hitting all the right notes.” (Sunday Telegraph)

“A night with The Overtones is a truly spectacular occasion…We haven't had this much fun at a gig in ages and The Overtones proved tonight that they are one of the best live acts in the country” – Entertainment Focus
