SPARKS LIVE! SPECTACULAR – 21 ALBUMS IN 21 NIGHTS

May 16th – June 11th 2008. Album No. 1 – Album No. 20 at Carling Academy, Islington,

June 13th 2008. World premiere of Sparks’ as-yet-untitled 21st album at Shepherds Bush Empire

Tickets on sale from November 29th


When faced with the challenge of what to do next, pop innovators and musical legends Ron and Russell Mael aka Sparks have, in the past, not just risen to the challenge but surpassed any expectations.

So when asked what plans they had for their 21st album (yes you read it right…“21st” album) their answer was typically audacious:

“How do we best unveil our new album, Sparks as yet untitled 21st? How about playing in concert every single song off of every album that preceded it, all 20 albums on 20 consecutive nights, culminating in the premiere of our latest? That's approximately 250 songs, or for you musicians, 4 million, 825 thousand, 273 notes. Come celebrate each and every one of those notes with us!” Sparks, Los Angeles

Not many artists can claim to have 21 albums in their repertoire. Very few of those could say that their 21st album is as groundbreaking as their previous work. Only Sparks would dare to take on this challenge – this mammoth undertaking, this melodious epic, this groundbreaking concept, this celebration of musical greatness past and present.

The Sparks Spectacular will be taking place in London in May and June 2008 - one album per night, played in its entirety, starting with 1971’s album Halfnelson and concluding with the brand new, as yet untitled, 21st album. The only concession made to man’s physicality is that, whilst the order of the albums will be chronological, there will be some days off during the run!
