Read top news in music industry here on the Rolling Stone South Africa online magazine, including the latest music new from the Parlotones. The Parlotones will be relocating to the United States in January next year to satisfy an ever increasing demand for the band that has resulted in five trips to the States in the past 12 months.
The band will be settling in Los Angeles. Billed as the “Creative Capital of the World” due to one in every six of its residents working in a creative industry, the home base of Hollywood is more contusive for global touring and reach. They were already seen how they are enjoying themselves in the Las Vegas casinos. But luckily for us, we don’t have to move to LA to play poker, blackjack, roulette, slots, or any other game. Online casinos today give us the freedom to enjoy all these games from the comfort of our homes.

When Parlotones were asked about which game they like playing the most, blackjack seems to be their choice, and it seems they are pretty good at it because they managed to leave the tables with a profit.
The Parlotones have released 7 albums to date. Sales for the albums achieved two double platinum, two platinum and three gold respectively, outselling their international counterparts. This is an unprecedented achievement that has won the band the title of “Biggest selling rock band of the decade” in South Africa. Performing at the FIFA 2010 world Cup opening concert, the 2012 Olympics and touring with Snow Patrol in Europe the band relished the honour of Chris Martin from Coldplay personally requesting for The Parlotones to perform with them at Soccer City and Cape Town stadium.
Following dozens of tours abroad and performing at major festivals the band was initially introduced to the American public via a series of syncs on some of America’s major television shows such as One Tree Hill, Jersey Shore, Ghost Whisperer, Pretty Little Liars, 90210 and Friends With Benefits. The subsequent international broadcast of the bands 3D rock opera Dragonflies & Astronauts which was a rock opera written around their greatest hits, broadcasted in 3D and 2D to cinema’s, Direct TV in the USA and Facebook led to further touring of the USA and sold out shows in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
Negotiations for their own TV show focusing on their new adventure are currently under way.
