American legendary band Sparks will be performing as the part of European The Hippopotamus tour 2017 at Lucerna Music Bar. Sparks will introduce songs from their upcoming album Hippopotamus as well as the greatests hits of their 40 years long career.
Musical mavericks Sparks – Californian brothers Ron and Russell Mael – will release their new studio album Hippopotamus on September 8th 2017 on BMG, accompanied by the first European dates of The Hippopotamus Tour.
Recorded in Los Angeles, Hippopotamus sees them take the pop form, shake it up, and create an album that is adventurous, fresh and idiosyncratically Sparks. Described as “the smartest, most consistently evolving band in the history of rock”, and internationally acclaimed as pop pioneers, Sparks’ music has always been innovative and instantly identifiable. The title track, first played on BBC Radio 6 Music, was released as a single at midnight Friday 24th March after the band performed it, as well as 3 other songs from the album, in their set at the 6 Music Festival in Glasgow.
Tickets will be available from April 17th 11:00 at Lucerna Music Bar box office and website and GoOut.cz
