Sparks are set to return to the UK later this year with a renewed adaptation of their 'Two Hands, One Mouth' show.
Sparks is - at heart - the partnership between two brothers. Ron and Russell Mael are the creative force behind the project, in addition to being its most public guise.
Last year the pair decided to try something different. Stripping back their live show to just a duo, the Mael brothers opened 'Two Hands, One Mouth' with a spectacular show at London's Bush Hall.
Now Sparks are set to take the project back to the UK, announcing a flurry of dates in 'The Revenge Of Two Hands, One Mouth'.
Here's a short statement from the pair:
"Having been so moved by the overwhelming reaction and support throughout Europe to our “Two Hands One Mouth” tour last October, we have decided to do one more go-round in the duo format, 'The Revenge of Two Hands One Mouth'. For those who saw the tour in its first incarnation, we promise to keep the intensity up, the two-hands, one-mouthiness up, the no-computeriness up, and also perform a bunch of tunes not played on the original tour. For all virgins, please enjoy for the first time our two hands and one mouth".
