World Party Tickets
World Party is a successful British pop/rock band, which is
essentially the solo project of its multi-talented only member, Karl
Wallinger. World Party was started in 1986 after Wallinger
left his former band The Waterboys. World Party was named
after the very song that cause the split in the band in the first
place. Their music is a pop and rock combination, with elements of
folk, funk, R&B and soul.

World Party cites The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, Junior Walker, Neil Young and Prince among their musical influences. Wallinger sings and plays most of the instruments himself, using multitracking to create a polished studio sound. Lyrically, many of the songs feature thoughtful and occasionally political sentiments.
World Party's first album was Private Revolution, released in 1987, which yielded two minor hits in the UK, "Private Revolution" and "Ship of Fools". It wasn't until the follow up album, Goodbye Jumbo (1990), that World Party came to more widespread notice. This album yielded two significant hits - "Put the Message in the Box" and "Way Down Now". Goodbye Jumbo was voted album of the year by Q magazine and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Performance in the USA.
The third album from World Party, Bang! (1993), was a bigger success in chart placing terms, reaching #2 in the UK album chart. Bang!'s track "Is It Like Today?" also was a successful single in Europe. The fourth album, Egyptology (1996), did not do well commercially, with the exception of the single "She's The One", which was to win an Ivor Novello award and was subsequently recorded by Robbie Williams. The album Dumbing Up was released in 2000 on World Party's own label, and was a real return to form, arguably Wallinger's best work since Goodbye Jumbo.
World Party embarked on a massive tour in 2006, adding many extra tour dates to the original schedule.
