Struggle With Glory – Parlour Tour Set To Be A Huge Success
Since announcing his upcoming tour of Struggle With Glory via Parlour Gigs, Harry James Angus’ new project has been inundated with requests from fans for the show to play in their backyards and lounge rooms.
Parlour have had over 140 applications to host Struggle With Glory – their most popular tour in a 2 and a half year history. So far 22 gigs nationally have been locked in, with more being added daily. This result is not surprising given that Harry is the well-loved front man of one of the countries most prolific bands, The Cat Empire.
“We’ve never seen a response like this for a Parlour Tour. Harry has some of the most dedicated fans in the country. We couldn’t be more excited to be bringing such an incredible musician into homes around the country.” – Matt Walters, co-founder of Parlour Gigs Fans can still offer to host a Struggle With Glory Parlour show, by going to
Struggle With Glory is a show written by Harry around ancient Greek Mythology, performed with a 9-piece jazz band including a gospel choir. Parlour hosts and their guests can expect a cut down version of the show in their lounge-rooms. Since an industry launch less than 3 weeks ago, the big band version of the show has already been booked for festivals across 5 states within Australia next year, as well as attracting offers from with international festivals. You can check out He Took The Fire, a song about the tale of Prometheus, his battle with Zeus and rescue by Hercules, from Struggle With Glory, here:
Parlour was launched in 2015, and since then they have facilitated over 600 gigs in backyards, kitchens, living rooms, halls and all other spaces right across the country. In fact, around 50% of Parlour’s gigs are held in regional Australia – some in very remote areas where there are no live music venues.
Struggle With Glory’s tour should be no different, with shows already booked across Australia from Thornbury to Tallebudgera, and Hawthorn to Hazelbrook.
It is free to sign up, and by setting up a Parlour gig you not only have the opportunity to have your favourite artist play to your family and friends in the comfort of your own home, but you’re helping to support the local music industry too.
