About Tears For Fears
After a triumphant concert on Radio 2 last night and 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 an O2 Arena show Thursday 10th May.
These shows will be the first leg of the "Rule The World Tour 2018". The tour will come to the SEC Armadillo on 7 May 2018. Tickets will go on sale 9am, Friday 3 November priced £39.75 - £62.45 (inc. admin fee).
Having sold 30 million albums worldwide, performed to countless sold out audiences, and won various awards, Tears For Fears – Roland Orzabal [vocals, guitar, keyboards] and Curt Smith [vocals, bass, keyboards] – are one of the most influential bands to have come out of the UK. With a catalogue of classic albums namely the gold-certified debut The Hurting , quintuple-platinum BRIT Award-winning Songs from the Big Chair , and Seeds of Love  and a string of huge hits, including classics such as “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” “Shout,” “Mad World,” “Head Over Heels,” “Woman In Chains,” these shows are not to be missed!
Joining Tears For Fears on all UK & Ireland dates is Alison Moyet. In a 35-year recording career, three-times BRIT Award-winner and Grammy-nominee, Alison Moyet, has released 9 solo studio albums and a further 3 compilations. 2017 sees Alison continuing to make adventurous lyrical electronic pop music with her critically-acclaimed album Other, and embarking on her biggest world tour for thirty years. Tears For Fears play the following UK and Ireland Dates in 2018:
Tears For Fears recently announced the release of their first career-spanning Greatest Hits album, Rule The World which is out November 10th on Virgin/EMI. Not only does Rule The World feature all the aforementioned hits and more, but it also boasts the first original music from the duo since 2004, the new single “I Love You But I’m Lost” and acoustic track “Stay”.
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.
