"From spinal tap to snoop dog, 10 shows that will make Live Earth a day to remember"

5. The Parlotones: Have you ever wanted to say that you saw a world-famous band play before they were world-famous? Envy that older brother of yours who saw the Police in 1979? Well, you may not be able to say you were in the crowd at Johannesburg, but if you catch the Parlotones on TV, it'll be the next best thing. This South African quartet is set to blow up, and blow up big. Their last record, "Radiocontrolledrobot," was a huge hit in their native country, and music presses far from home have rightfully acclaimed their pop-rock sounds.

Bio

Kahn Morbee (vocals, guitar) / Paul Hodgson (guitar) / Glen Hodgson (bass) / Neil Pauw (drums)

The Parlotones have moved to Los Angeles to focus on the American market and give it the attention required to truly make an impact and achieve the results they have enjoyed in other territories. The multi platinum selling Johannesburg-bred quartet have headlined the 20,000-seater Coca Cola Dome in their hometown in 2009, performed at the World Cup Kick-off Concert to an audience of a billion in 2010, and were handpicked by Coldplay to open the British band's stadium shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town in 2011. The Parlotones staged an original rock theatre production, Dragonflies and Astronauts, which was broadcast live around the world in 3D via DIRECTV and in 2D on Facebook. Over the years, they have raised funds and awareness for a variety of social and environmental organizations, lending their high profile to initiatives such as Live Earth, Earth Hour, The South African Broadcasting Corporation's Carbon Free campaign, Nelson Mandela's 46664, and Live Earth's Run for Water, among others.
