Paul Heaton is best known as a founding member of both Housemartins, who were a household name in the 1980s, and The Beautiful South, who achieved acclaim in the early 1990s.

With a prolific solo career as well, Heaton will tour Australia in October playing a greatest hits set encompassing music from all of his projects.

His tour comes off the back of a 50:50 bicycle tour of the UK celebrating his 50th birthday. Heaton will cycle across the UK and Ireland playing shows in pubs. Sounds like good fodder for a TV show or book to us!
