By Angela Cole

Tears for Fears brought us the epic Everybody Wants to Rule the World and had a string of other award-winning hits which are still being sampled today by the likes of Kanye West, Drake and David Guetta.

The multi million selling band have to date notched up sales of more than 30 million albums worldwide, including their gold-certified debut The Hurting plus the BRIT award-winning Songs from the Big Chair.

Tears for Fears are now back with their first greatest hits album, Rule the World. The tracks span their career, with enduring classics such as Shout, Mad World and Sowing the Seeds of Love to newer compositions.

Tears for Fears will be supported by 1980s stars ABC, led by charismatic singer Martin Fry, who helped kickstart the decade with their own brand of pop, fusing the world of disco funk with their own New Romantic post-punk sound.
