The Parlotones North American Tour
The tour will bring them back to Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, while also making stops in Nashville, Cleveland and Philadelphia.
The Parlotones have partnered with Ridgeline Entertainment to be featured in the world's first Live 3D Broadcast Event of the Year, Dragonflies and Astronauts.
The new genre, called "3D Rock Theatre," is a unique fusion of technology, music and theatrical performance. Dragonflies & Astronauts is being developed complete with storyline, sets and characters revolving around the greatest hits of The Parlotones.
International fans will be able to see the live 3D production on various platforms including 3D theaters, 3D networks and via live streaming, all of which are currently being negotiated by Ridgeline Entertainment.
The 90-minute global transmission will be beamed via IntelSat satellite network from the beautiful El Teatro Theater in the Montecasino district of Johannesburg on July 16, 2011.
The Parlotones are the first and only South African band to ever sell out the 20,000-capacity Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg, and they commemorated the occasion by filming the event for a live cd/dvd combo titled Live Design. The release includes 18 tracks of the band's greatest hits and was recently nominated for two 2011 South African Music Awards including Best Rock Album and Best Music DVD. Live Design will be available in the U.S. on June 21.
