The Wild Swans, one of the most successful new-wave bands to hit mainstream radio in the Pool Capital of the World, will perform live at the Waterfront Hotel & Casino in Lahug, Cebu City, and at One Esplanade, SM Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City on September 30, 2011 and October 1, 2011, respectively,
The Wild Swans is one of my uber-favorite bands of all time! The post-punk band from Liverpool, England, made its debut in 1980 shortly after Paul Simpson left The Teardrop Explodes and teamed up with Jeremy Kelly, Ged Quinn, James Weston, and Justin Stavely, who was later replaced by Alan Wills. The Wild Swans have enjoyed a huge degree of success and cult status in several countries, i.e., USA, UK, Germany, Japan, and the Philippines.
And who in the world could ever forget their songs? Whirlpool Heart! Northern England! Bringing Home the Ashes! Now and Forever! Melting Blue Delicious! Bible Dreams! Telescope! And more!
