Following a flurry of sell-out shows worldwide, fans and scribes have re-discovered pop pre-eminent girl group, the Bangles. With hits like "Manic Monday," "Eternal Flame", "If She Knew What She Wanted", "Hazy Shade Of Winter", "Walk Like an Egyptian" and "Walking Down Your Street", Australians will re-experience the music of the Bangles for the second time around. Lennard Promotions are proud to announce that the Bangles will be touring again in October 2008.
Rock historians view the Bangles as one of the greatest all-female bands ever, lauding the L.A.-based quartet for its inventive incorporation of '60s folk rock into a sound all its own - beguiling, frequently bittersweet, but always life-affirming; a canny merger of art and commerce. Theirs was a rags-to-riches story, from the band's beginnings in L.A.'s Paisley Underground scene through their reign as the smart-pop princesses of the 1980s - a problematic decade that was far richer for the Bangles' presence in its unfolding. The reconnection of Susanna, Debbi and Vicki was working. Returning to the studio in 1999, the four reunited bandmembers cut the newly written song "Get the Girl" for the soundtrack of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
The Bangles are back stronger than ever and returning to Australia in October 2008.
