Tears for Fears – Rock in Rio

We didn’t see this show coming…it was a huge and welcomed surprise! Many thanks to Marcio Campos who got all the footage for us as he always does. We appreciate his leadership and kindness to all fans from North America, South America and beyond. Marcio, you are one of a kind! We love you and appreciate you!

The file has been shared hundreds of times from the event and you can also watch it on YouTube. We have it archived in our video files of which are available to all travel fans and friends!

Here’s one from Drummer Genius Jamie Wollam

They had a good time 🙂

More shows to come! Tears for Fears have yet another announcement! Stay tuned!

Almost Showtime…

IMG_2013
Starting Wednesday night (tomorrow) teams, fellow fans and friends will head out to complete the Tears for Fears Tour 2017. All the travel information we mentioned previous still stands. Hotel suggestions near the venues in Los Angeles, San Jose and Santa Barbara remain the same. If you’re headed to Brasil for Rock in Rio, be sure to tell Marcio de Campos so that he can know you’re there.

This particular fan team does not have any meetups planned for these final five shows of the summer tour season. Several of us feel it’s good to keep a respectful distance with respect to the initial need to pause. If anyone wants to hang out and get a drink before the show, feel free to leave a note on the many fan walls including our Tears for Fears Travel Fan Team board. We’ve all tried to make it easy to connect with others following the band for these music excursions. We’re also focusing on 2018 and the new album to come at this point. Don’t forget to set aside some cash for celebrating that and following them around as future shows are planned.

Safe travels and enjoy the shows!

14 & 15 September Staples Center – Los Angeles
17 September SAP Center – San Jose
18 September Santa Barbara Bowl – Santa Barbara
22 September Rock in Rio – Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

As a team of  dedicated fans who travel to follow the band, we’ve been gathering and celebrating Tears for Fears for over 2 decades. In the last 7 years (started archiving our travel in 2010), we’ve made a lot of efforts to be inclusive and keep our fellow fans in the know. Some of our fun includes where to meet up for photos, notifications on the band’s prompts to hang out and spend a few minutes with fellow fans and more. Many of us are back on the road again for #Tour2017. Below is an updated list of the full 2017 Tears for Fears concert schedule (global) and those who have checked-in to say where they’ll be during the tour. Cheers-cheers!

Dedicated to Valerie who will be in Arizona and to Katie who cashed out her 401K (not uncommon) to see the band this year. We wish everyone safe travels and a great time!

Air Travel: We suggest Delta or Southwest – please be sure to join their frequent flyer club programs. There is no extra charge and the perks are worth it. In 2014, we were able to use points each time we wanted to see the band. You can earn enough points for free tickets, free hotel stays and more.

Reflections of Fans in Band Land 2013

We had endless online fun this year with lots of Pysch interactions and extra media mentions kicking off the start. In March we had a new place to follow the band, Tumblr. They also established an official Facebook page and twitter activity escalated.

Carri's gift of glitter to the 2nd cover for this album.

Carri’s gift of glitter to the 2nd cover for this album.

We celebrated 30 years of The Hurting and as the months went on saw tons of collaboration and notable new bands eager to cover Tears For Fears’ music. We were able to enjoy the behind-the-scenes activities and connect with Spotify where we met the mutual influencers. Though some fans were horrified that anyone would dare touch the sacred songs, the band helped everyone understand how grateful they and the other 50% of the fans were that new groups were showing their appreciation and admiration by covering these untouchable pieces of audio art. To top that, there were a substantial amount phenomenal covers by the band themselves, including Arcade Fire’s ‘Ready to Start’ and more.

Among the communication from the band we were surprised by spontaneous #CurtChats during any down moments that Curt had. This was really generous of the good man as he often incoporated us into his evenings…his sweet angels right by his side completing their nightly homework. It added such a personal touch and an enormous amount of love from the Smith Family to us. We are very appreciative beyond words. We also got to spend time with Curt simultaneously at the KROQ event through the power of streaming video. The holiday show featuring Curt Smith on stage with Portugal. The Man was outstanding. Fans across the USA and beyond stayed up to sync with the time zone and watch. Soon after that were more chances to chat. We loved that! *We did attempt to compile a FAQ page from the questions in 2013 but they added up to more than 255 inquiries+ and the answers are still being archived. No estimated time of delivery on that.

Curt also introduced us to our 2013 Holiday Gift which for TeamCS turned into the gift that keeps on giving. We rolled over some cash from the 2012 project to the Maceo cause. This project was mostly funded by Carri (USA) and Marcio (Brasil). Those large donations were outstanding and are being deducted from the fan account from Maceo’s team monthly. Again, big thanks and what a lovely example of team spirit with Curt as an inspiration.

998720_611496968882665_285871613_nOther plusses from Fans and in Band Land included new music from Alisa and Captain Julian w/their pal Eric Senet, forming Trinity Falls. Curt Smith’s Deceptively Heavy hit home with many, making an impression on old and new fans of all ages.

We are very hopeful about 2014, with fans continuously asking for a tour. We’re certain that if it is profitable for the band to run around to various cities across many lands, they will. We’re not in a rush though. We just want the new music and a merch store, both of which were confirmed by Tears for Fears and in particular Curt Smith. Anything more will be a bonus…a much welcomed bonus even if it’s 2015.

ContestOur gratitude toward the band and their continous interaction and updates are very appreciative from the throwback Thursdays (#tbt) to letting us know the progress of the new music. We even now have a chance to contribute to the remixes. It’s all GOLD to us and as long as permitted we will continue to stand right along side with support and admiration.

Big thanks to the team in Japan who provided artwork and 365 music updates, Juli-Juli and Manami, our fan lives are better because of you. Big thanks to Carri who spends countless hours focused on band news and updates from the sister sites of fans and social media boards and is always very generous in her donations to fan projects inspired by Curt Smith. Shout out to TAO and HUGE THANKS to the Orzabal family for countless interactions and being so down to earth and fun every single time, every single encounter. Our dedication knows no bounds, we are there for them. Cheers to an amazing year ahead inclusive of travel fan team fun in 2014!

Happy Birthday to Curt's Angel Wilder who turned a year sweeter last week.

Superfan MeetUps: Sorocaba & beyond

TFF's Charlton after the show  with Liz, Brigitte and Judi

TFF’s Charlton after the show with Liz, Brigitte and Judi

Tears for Fears meetups are back in full swing in so many parts of the world.  These mini-events are conducted by regional clubs as a way to keep everyone in touch while enjoying the energy of the band’s music. They are attended by 3 to 35 individuals at a  local bar, restaurants, clubhouses, hotel ballrooms and sometimes right after a show. Back in 2012, TFF’s Charlton came by… how cool is that? At some events, DJs are hired to play and spin remixes of songs and in some cases new musicians inspired by the band are on hand with a guitar ready to go with their own salutes to the group. Meetups can take on the form of small conferences which usually take place around shows i.e. Vegas/Hendersonville. These gatherings can sometimes last for days with members getting to know each other rather well.

TFF Gregori 33A recent MeetUp was in Sorocaba Brasil at Back Road Bar. It was attendeed by Tears For Fears superfans Gregori Lisboa, Ju Vannucchi, Carolina Mantovanni, Nilda de Fatima Amorim, Claudia Beneli, Alexandre Chagas, Glaucia Souto, Giovani Marcello, Silvia Vannucchi, Bruno Ernandes and others. One of the members was responsible for the banner and what a beautiful job they did with it. Look at that!

Sorocaba Meetup (Brasil)

Brasil TFF

Hanging out at Back Road Bar -Brasil TFF Meetup

Much like the dedicated travelling fans, Brasil’s fans i.e.  our fan team lead Marcio Campos and his Sorocaba pal Gregori Lisboa, are known for their awesome love and energy for Tears For Fears. Ask just about any Brasilian who lived in the country during the 80s and 90s…they’ll tell you how much the country loves the band. Now, those fans  have families of their own (i.e. Marcio), They’ve brought their children along for the fun, turning TFF’s concerts into a family affair.

Greg at meetup

Our handsome pal Gregori shows us some souvenirs

At the Sorocaba meetup, members brought souveniers and other cool things to swap and share with each other. Some of the  other meetups featured sing-a-longs, DVD screenings of the band’s past concerts and movies in which their music has been used i.e. Weird Science. A few from the stateside team watched The Private Public, a film in which Curt smith played the part of a University Professor,  at an Atlanta Clubhouse tea room in late 2010. There are plans to put a few meetups together in honour of Curt’s next appearance on the USA network’s popular television show Psych.

If you and your fellow Tears For Fears fan pals are getting together soon let us know. We look forward to more gatherings, larger conferences, more shows and music from those inspired by the band and of course the band themselves!

Don’t forget the cake!

Arte em Acucar even got Curt's Doc Martins...now you know that's clever!

New Music from Tears & Kooks in Band Land

Marcio Campos, Team Lead Brasil, is one of 5 archivist in the Americas. His collection of music is well organised.

Marcio Campos, Team Lead Brasil & TFF Music Archivist’s collection part I

Tweets, updates and “other news” have let us know that new music, a new album and maybe more are not out of the question for Tears For Fears. We are grateful that they are active and members are in the studio …again, pay attention, read those tweets, the answers are right there…and that’s all we’ll say on that.

While we wait, patiently and lovingly as noted on Curt’s wall by followers of the band we’re going to explore the new material that is already out.

Curt did a collaboration with Junkie_XL this past year. His song “When is Enough Not Enough” got quite a bit of attention from fans and the industry. The impressive sound was addictive and many couldn’t get enough of it. It was unreal how we reacted to this piece of music. You can simply click through that link on his name, follow him and visit his site to buy a copy of that magnificent song and the entire album.

Here’s a Youtube clip

IntoTheBlue

Autographed cards and cd from DelaQ’s Julian Orzabal and Eric Senet

In the Orzabal Family one can find the band DelaQ. At this point, they need no introduction. Their Album Into the Blue was released in 2012. We reviewed it thoroughly and fell head over heels for just about every track.

We purchased several copies. At one point it became extremely hard to turn it off. All of this music came out around the same time…one right after the other…it was a feast for superfans everywhere.

Wild World Members in 2011 -Tears For Fears Superfan Alisa McCathern is lead vocalist

Wild World Members in 2011 -Tears For Fears Superfan Alisa McCathern is lead vocalist

From DelaQ we met Wild World. Fellow Tears for Fears Travel Superfan Alisa is the lead singer. They released an album in 2011 and another last month (Jan 2013).  The most recent, titled, “Campaign of Angels” is yet another piece of magnificent work. Very strong and heavily accented with instruments. It’s a journey for your mind and spirit.

Purchase_Info:http://wildworld.bandcamp.com/album/where-have-you-been

soundcloud-logoIn the sea of fans, we were introduced to Robert O. on the night of the Brasil 2012 show. It was incredible…this guy has put together a ton of tribute songs and remixes of the bands work using his own voice for every layer on each track. He even wrote a tribute song to fellow fans. All of this can be found on soundcloud. Superfan RJO.  has been encouraged to keep writing, keep pushing himself to the next level…we say the same. Thank you Robert!

Marcio Campos -TFF Travel Fan Team Lead representing Brasil

Marcio Campos is one of the long standing fans of the Tears For Fears Travel Fan Team. Joining us in 2011, he shared tons of pictures, special autographed photographs and his Tears for Fears music collection. Daily he offered new photos, updates and so much more…always engaging and staying active with us on all platforms. He, like many others on the team is multi-lingual, multicultured and we were pleased as punch to add him to the team as a regional leader.

Marcio is the go to superfan for all things Tears For Fears Brasil Fan Travel. When we have questions about where to stay, logistics on how to get fans from one place to the other, having fun and interacting with other fans when travelling we know we can count on Marcio. His 25+ year history as a superfan of the band means he is able to give background on when albums were released and what the audience was like at that time in his region and in other parts of the world. In 2011, he met up with the band backstage and took a great photo. We are proud to present that here on his section of the fan team page. Again, Marcio, you’re awesome and we appreciate you!

You can reach Marcio on Facebook and Twitter.

Message from Marcio about the most recent Tears For Fears show in Brasil 

Hello Friends! TFF performed at Epaco das Americas in 22nov2012 plus a private concert to the Shell company & Ferrari in Saturday 24/nov/2012.These were two big events that justified the coming of the band to Sao Paulo so soon. Due to the closure of the Formula 1 season in Brazil, probably the event organizers or F1 sponsor company decided to bring TFF (??) The information that I read is that more than 7000 people were on November 22th. I don’t know much details about Shell/TFF but maybe my other Brazilian TFF fans could help me. BTW big hug to all of you and I wish for UK and Europe in general are included on the next tour…
