They played on a crowded Skandiascenen in Stockholm in August and now it is clear they return to Sweden 2018 – On Saturday, June 16, Sparks plays at Circus in Stockholm.

The tickets were released on Friday, January 26th.

The last year’s tour received brilliant criticism throughout the world.

★★★★★ The Times (What a band)
★★★★★ The Independent (one of the most innovative outfits in pop)
★★★★★ Classic Pop (The Mael brothers burn up the place)
★★★★★ The Skinny (a band performing at their absolute best)

Sparks has had a lot of influence on artists such as Morrissey, Björk, The Ramones, Faith No More, Sonic Youth and Nirvana. They have always introduced innovative music with light bizarre, screwed texts. Their music feels immediately again. Sparks has been described as the smartest and most consistent developing band in rock history and has created a unique musical heritage through its albums and concerts.

The breakthrough album “Kimono My House” was released in 1974 and featured classic songs like “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both of Us” and “Amateur Hour”. In 1979, they chose to radically reschedule the course and in collaboration with legendary disc producer Giorgio Moroder they released the groundbreaking album “No 1 in Heaven”.

We welcome Ron and Russell Mae back to Sweden this summer. Do not miss!
