The Levellers

Story by Jack Foley

BRIGHTON based folk-punk band, The Levellers, are celebrating their 20th anniversary together in March 2008.

The band will be playing three huge shows to mark the event which have been dubbed “Beautiful Nights” in reference to their award winning Beautiful Days festival.

Support acts for Beautiful Nights have been confirmed as firm festival favourites Alabama 3 (acoustic), Dreadzone (London only) and 3 Daft Monkeys.

The Levellers started their career in 1988 and have gained a reputation as one of Britain’s best live acts by their un-relenting commitment to touring and performing at festivals.

They have recently been honoured with the award for “Festival Feel-Good Act” at the 2007 UK Festival Awards, voted for by the public.

The band’s back catalogue has recently been released on the Rhino imprint which has highlighted their often overlooked recording career that includes the hits Just the One, Hope Street, This Garden, What A Beautiful Day and One Way.

The Levellers sold more platinum, gold, and silver albums in the 1990s than any other act.

The tour dates are (all March 2008):

6 – Wolverhampton Civic Hall
7 – Manchester Apollo
8 – London Brixton Academy
