The Parlotones have performed live in front of more than 2 million fans since the beginning of their career. Add to this the one trillion people they saw at the opening ceremony of the 2010 World Cup and you get an idea of the band's charisma.
When The Parlotones got together in Johannesburg in 1998, they had no idea they were going to write one of the biggest Rock´n roll stories South Africa had ever seen. Their continuous hard work and drive to create something new. Her dedication to music and her down-to-earth, loving and friendly relationship with her team and fans is an integral part of her career, which has lasted for more than 20 years.

There have also been the self-published works Antiques & Artefacts, Trinkets, Relics & Heirlooms and Orchestrated, which the band showed for the first time in collaboration with an orchestra. There were several sold-out live concerts with this line-up.
