Tears For Fears will perform in Durham this summer!

The iconic duo has announced a very special concert at Emirates Riverside, home of Durham County Cricket Club, on Saturday 27 July 2019, bringing their extensive catalogue of hits to Durham in what promises to be an incredible evening of music.

Following on from a hugely successful indoor Arena Tour, Tears For Fears have announced that they will play only a select number of outdoor summer shows and Emirates Riverside has been chosen as one of these venues. The band know that this part of the world has a very vibrant audience! 

ABC will perform as very special guests at Tears for Fears’ Durham concert this summer. The legendary pop band led by charismatic singer Martin Fry will be bringing their most popular hits to the stage.

With sales of over 30 million albums worldwide, Tears For Fears songs have resonated and resounded throughout popular culture since 1981, yet they’re even more apropos than ever in the 21st century. Everyone from Kanye West and The Weeknd to Drake and David Guetta has sampled a song from Tears For Fears. You can hear their timeless anthems piping through The Wire, Donnie Darko, Straight Outta Compton, Mr. Robot and more.

Those songs comprise their first career-spanning Greatest Hits album; the aptly titled Rule the World; a bevy of enduring classics together such as Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Shout, Mad World, Woman In Chains, Pale Shelter, and more.
