Acclaimed synthpop pioneer Howard Jones will be touring the UK in May 2019 to celebrate both the release of his brand new album Transform and 35th anniversary of the release of his debut album Human’s Lib.
Howard is in some of the best live form of his life, 2018 was packed with 50 headline US shows and a summer of festival appearances. On presenting the new show Howard promises that he will be ‘bringing a lot of synths’ and that ticket holders are in store for both a “sonic and visual feast.”
As well as performing songs from the new album, concert goers can expect to hear many classic songs including What Is Love, New Song, Pearl In The Shell, Things Can Only Get Better and Hide and Seek (which he performed at Live Aid). To coincide with the 35th anniversary, Cherry Red Records are releasing box sets of both Human’s Lib and Dream Into Action in November 2018.
Howard will be joined by very special guests China Crisis; Eddie Lundon and Gary Daly will be performing their unique and glorious Merseyside pop with hits such as Wishful Thinking, Black Man Ray and Working With Fire and Steel.
