RATP Group-owned The Original Tour is to launch an innovative live music event on its open-top bar bus

The Original Tour is to launch a new product called the ‘The Original Sounds Bus” live above London’ – which is being marketed as an ‘utterly unique and immersive live music experience.’

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, 2020 has proved a challenging year for the entertainment industry. Measures such as government recommendations to work from home, restrictions on travel and public gatherings and venues being unable to open their doors have all had a significant impact on performers and artists alike.

The Original Tour says it is not just the artists who have suffered, the public have too. “People are missing, and craving, the atmosphere you get from attending live music events, the connections you make with strangers over a shared love of an artist, or the roar of ‘encore!’ from a crowd and the cheers that follow as the audience get to hear one more song.”

This December, the public will be able to take a journey through the capital on London’s only rooftop bar bus, whilst listening to the live sounds of Joe Slater, presented by Talentbanq, who act as agents for talented independent artists. Joe will deliver a smooth blend of rock, blues and soul music as the audience sit back and soak up the atmosphere, with stunning views of London as the perfect platform for this concert with a difference.

Darren Neylon, MD of The Original Tour said: “We can’t wait to welcome customers on board The Original Sounds Bus. This will be a musical experience like no other and the perfect choice of entertainment in what has been a very challenging year for us all. We are incredibly proud of this new product and are excited about launching it to live audiences as a market-first in London.”

Ray Jones, CEO of Talentbanq said: “Talentbanq are delighted to be working with The Original Tour on such an innovative project. Celebrating the rich heritage of live music in London while providing a uniquely entertaining tour for visitors and Londoners alike.

The Original Sounds Bus will be providing live music events on Thursday 10 December at 1830hrs and Saturday 12 December at 1530hrs. Full details can be found at:
