First leg of Tour announced including Dublin Date
With a sold-out show at The Royal Albert Hall to come this evening, TEARS FOR FEARS announce plans for their first UK and Ireland Tour since 2005 with 8 dates in 2018, including a Dublin Show at the 3Arena on 2nd May.
Beyond their own output, Tears For Fears have influenced many artists today including being sampled by Kanye West, The Weeknd, David Guetta, Drake, and more, while also being covered by Lorde, Adam Lambert, Gary Jules, and Disturbed, to name a few. Meanwhile, classic songs figure prominently everywhere from The Wire and Donnie Darko to Straight Outta Compton and Mr. Robot.
Everybody Loves A Happy Ending was released after a 15 years hiatus in 2004, which rekindled the creative fire between the duo. Breaking another quiet spell, the boys engaged in a three-year touring whirlwind across North America, Japan, South Korea, Manila, and South America beginning in 2010. 2013 saw them return with their first recorded music in a decade: a cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ready to Start.”
First coming to prominence as one half of pioneering electronic duo Yazoo, their short-lived alchemic partnership produced two seminal hit albums, before disbanding at the height of their success. Following a furious bidding war, Alison signed to CBS and an extraordinary solo career began. As well as completing acting runs in both Chicago - The Musical and Smaller (with Dawn French) for which she co-wrote the production's song material, she performed at Live Aid, released the live DVD recording of 'One Blue Voice' and is a Nordoff Robbins Icon Award recipient.
