Dutch trio 3JS announced through their official website the release of a compilation album entitled Tot Zoverder…Het Beste van 3JS on the 25th of January, coinciding with their Bronnen theatre tour which is due to get underway on the 10th of January.
Eurovisionary reported on the announcement of dates an venues for the up and coming Bronnen tour a few months ago. The theatre tour is set to start on the 10th of January in Beverwijk, running all the way through until the 16th of April, when they play their final gig in Gouda.
In conjunction with their tour, 3JS are also to release a greatest hits compilation of sorts, a retrospective on the last six years of their successful career, combining both old and new material. The group are known for being very approachable to their fans and in true 3JS spirit, fans were asked to send in suggestions with their favourite songs as means of determining the track listing for the album, which is confirmed to be a double CD release. The first CD features 20 of the group’s most popular hits, with the second bonus CD featuring three new singles, including their newest release, Bijzonder (Special) alongside highlights from their upcoming Bronnen tour.
