Eighties band Tears for Fears will play a date in Kent next year, as part of their world tour.
The band, who have sold more than 30m albums worldwide, and whose hits include Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Mad World and Sowing the Seeds of Love, will reach the county in the summer of 2022, as part of their Tipping Point world tour.
The legendary duo - Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith - who formed the band in 1981, will be supported by Alison Moyet for the show at the Spitfire Ground in Canterbury. They were last at the ground in 2019.
The tour, which celebrates their first album release since 2004, will be in the city on Wednesday, July 20, 2022.
Their first new studio album in almost two decades, The Tipping Point, is released on February 25.
Speaking about going back out on the road, Curt Smith, said: “We couldn’t be more excited to start playing concerts again. We’ve missed seeing our friends on the road around the world and the energy of performing live.”
Roland Orzabal added: “The Tipping Point has been a long time in the making and we are looking forward to playing our favourites from the new album as well as our classics from throughout the years.”
