At the end ofthe 1970s momentous change was afoot in Britain and the world – in society,politics, fashion and culture – and the musical landscape was also about tochange forever. The guitar-driven dominance that had propelled rock and punkthroughout the decade was about to end, as synthesizers signalled the sound ofthe future and video transformed the look of the pop charts. The 1980s wereabout to explode into life and nothing would be the same again.
The 1980 Tour reminds us that these things are possible. Both ‘Vienna’ and ‘Visage’ were the sound of the future… and yet still sound unearthly, romantic, impossibly beautiful and full of promise.
Brought to life by Midge Ure and Band Electronica, this is the very first time in the 40 years since it was made that the ‘Vienna’ album will be performed in its entirety. It is also the first time that many of the songs from the debut Visage album will be played live.
