Tour Pause

IMG_1415

As mentioned on the official FB page, site and by Good Man Curt, there’s been a pause. We’ll of course announce the new dates when we get them as well. Try to be at peace and not panic. If you need a refund on your flight and have any issues receiving it from your airline, let us know via Twitter or you can email us on FB and gmail. Also consider asking for a credit so you can use that money for the reschedule. Things are going to work out…they always do for these fine band members by the Grace. Amen.

We Always Love Las Vegas – TFF 2017

We have a lot of great memories of travelling to Las Vegas and hanging out for a few days while we await the band to land and give us one of their epic musical nights. Tears for Fears concerts in Vegas are just EPIC! This one was thankfully indoors unlike some in the past (remember 2012’s heat – even the band asked for one during cooler weather LOL!). Thankfully each time the band has brought amazing, cool energy that creates a breeze of beautiful memories that have stayed with us. This was another one of those outstanding shows that you just can’t forget. There are so many wonderful posts about TFF Vegas 2017! Enjoy these videos from those that shared!

Tears for Fears Denver, CO 2017

When Ro smiles at me

Several people made long hauls across the country to go to this show specifically because the venue is just so awesome! Though dedicated strictly to Carrie on Twitter, we appreciate everyone that wrote in and road tripped literally to be there. Some left us photos in our FB inbox. Please send them to our email papasfans at gmail so we can feature you respectfully in this blog with all credit to you and your work. ๐Ÿ™‚ FB doesn’t permit photo downloads from the FB inbox.

Big thanks to Carrie for keeping in touch throughout her way to the show!

Shoutout to all the families who make Tears for Fears a family affair!

Again, this venue is awesome. For the few videos we do have from public shares, you’ll hear how well the band sounds…just angelic! Have a listen.

Tears for Fears in Tucson #TFF2017

This show didnโ€™t go as planned for a few fans. Lael will have the full report. There were rumours of people sneaking in and seat hopping in the VIP section. Somehow one fan lost her seat. Not sure how that happened and weโ€™re awaiting the details. But the biggest culprit was the rainโ€ฆmonsoon rain, their words, not ours. Really sad to hear that some fans decided to leave due to the poor weather conditions. It was one of those kind of nights…BUT THE SHOW WAS GOOD!

Kudos to Lael and any others that worked really hard to get tickets for as many as possible for this show. There were lots of tickets still available a week before the concert so hopefully all who wanted to be there did get tickets despite the reported half-hour delay due to the lightning and terrible weather.

For those that had to leave early and miss Tears entirelyโ€ฆletโ€™s have that conversation and work on getting you a better deal in the future and perhaps at a different venue. Outdoor shows in the summer are just scary and unpredictable (and part of the reason MANY on our team sat this one out โ€“ we knew it was too risky).
But the band marched on! The reports coming in say the band did great and trudged through, Roland joked about Wellingtons and they did that show with no complaints. Hereโ€™s a bit of video and some photos.

Gorgeous, Vivian!

*Vivian is the fan that brought everyone this bit of fun on the social walls

We’ll update this once we get the full story on what happened…
Thanks to Lael, the assistants for those that made special journeys to fulfill dreams of seeing the band and so many more! Very sorry about the rain and the tough conditions. Let’s do over!

Good Times in Glendale, Arizona! TFF 2017

Tears For Fears Travel Fan Blog Write – Up: Glendale (Phoenix) – Gila River Arena by Lael, TFF Travel Fan Team

Kenya and I arrived just on time, as the gridlock in Phoenix rush hour traffic was much worse than I thought it would be, especially considering we had use of the carpool lane. Opening act Allen Stone started earlier than 7:00 pm, and Tears For Fears took the stage at 7:15 pm. We made it to our seats on the floor just as TFF were taking the stage!! They sounded wonderful, and kept the volume at a nice level, considering the size of this arena.

Jamie Wollam was hitting on all cylinders, and his style of drumming just seems to suit larger venues. Actually, I feel that arenas bring out the optimum performance in TFF as well, due to the sing – along anthem style of their biggest hits. Other hits like “ELAHE” also shimmered in this setting.

I ended up dancing and singing, and remained standing during all of TFF’s set, even though in parts it felt kind of strange, almost a little inappropriate, as most of the audience was sitting down in the middle of their set. I loved the lighting effects that TFF had in place for “Change”, as these effects brought the song’s clean sound and pointed message to life.

The highlight of their concert was Kenya receiving a shout – out from Curt Smith, on the intro to “Shout”. I will never forget the look on Kenya’s face when she realized he had said her name! It took both of us a couple moments to realize it, as Curt Smith said her name in his adorable British accent, and she just did not believe it at first. I then turned to her, “Yeah, he said your name…”

After the concert, we met up with Valerie Matherne and her cousin, Deanna. We ended up going to this nondescript taco bar at Westgate, and had non – alcoholic drinks, as the kitchen had already closed and it was getting late, with long drives still aheadโ€ฆ

Snippets From San Diego – TFF 2017

IMG_1371 (1)
Skipping ahead to the San Diego show while fellow fans finish sending in photos and posting. We haven’t a lot of commentary or detailed tales of how we got there and what hotel we stayed in. This tour has been different and long…very long. So, we’re just getting to the point…the music. This post is not much different. We’re sharing some snippets from the show that were shared by many.

MVP of the night is Yara for suffering through the glitches in the ticket system. The amount of work that goes into getting to a show can be unspeakable at times and so any delays at the finish line can send some people into a flat out meltdown. Kudos to all who kept their cool. Heaven knows we want to be at these shows. It’s not a pastime for us, it’s a pilgrimage so we work double hard to make sure as many of us that spend time chatting together online every single day as we have done since 2004 (and some of us before that) get into the venue. Sometimes Lady Carolyn goes as far as to just hand out tickets. This year she literally grabbed security and said help me find someone to give this ticket to…on the second row center. I mean…come one now. We take this very seriously and we could literally do this for a living and not burn out or tire…I’ve spent 34 years listening to this band and I’m not even 40 yet! This is our yearly reunion so for goodness sake, Ticketmaster, AXS, etc…solutions please to these ticket woes!

High Five to all the fellow fans who came out to San Diego and sang with passion to all the songs. Did anyone else notice the magic on Head over Heels? Was that not the remastered version come to life or what? Wow!!!!!! and that crowd…super awesome!

*Dedicated to Yara and that Sd Guy who shared it all! Thank you both!!

Candids of Curt and Roland

Wait, play that again! Whaaat, whaaaat? The Broken version for HOH? Donโ€™t tease, TFF! Keep it up and consider a do over where it wasnโ€™t done before!

Thanks, Yara!!! (Everybody knows Yara! Sheโ€™s been following for years. Sheโ€™s a TFFDDer)

Something about the acoustics at this venue… wow, really allowed the guys’ voices and the musicians talent to shine through.

Tears for Fears Touching the Hearts of Tel Aviv 2017

The phone rang, people emailed, the media reached out… “Are you going to Tel Aviv? Can we speak with you?” Everyone was excited about this show! It was one of the first to be officially announced this year on the grapevine so to speak.

Here’s some footage from that show. Please be sure to reach out, follow and befriend all who are sharing! It’s awesome to build your circle with fellow Tears for Fears fans! Congratulations to Carina Round as she is expecting a child soon. We wish her well.

This post is dedicated to Liran Dan who was so excited about the show and reached out to pour his heart and soul into the greetings for the band. G-d bless you!

Birthday Love for Curt in Boston!

So, Curt celebrated his birthday in Boston this year and the coolest part was the crowd singing to him annnnnd his family was there with him! How nice! Crunch Cake Day went off without a hitch!

But first, a little Bath in Boston from a fellow fan who worked hard to get to this show. See her story below.

Deb, Darby, Pam and others went to the show and had an amazing time! Check out some of these videos from shares online! Reach out to DB519 and say thanks!!! Make a new friend with those who post videos online! These are amazing fellow fans!

Sowing the Seeds

Head over Heels
*It’s crazy how much this sounds like the actual cassette tape from back in the day. It’s insane really how one can maintain that quality! In most cases, we’ve found they sound even better and they alreadyyyyy were powerful and outstanding… THIS! THIS is why we break our necks and the bank to get to every show. There’s a lot of good energy that just flows like a river at these concerts. You gotta be there to see and feel it!

Shout

Birthday Party in Boston!
*Dear person that sang that with such feeling and emotion (do you hear them? soooo sweet! – And Roland’s nice suave ending! Goodness, get the tissues!)

You can’t miss Ms. Sylvia’s cakes! Every year she outdoes herself with a fine creation that captures the band in detail. Here’s Curt’s 2017 cake! We bet it has crunch toffee inside! Yum to the NTH degree!

And his family of angels showed up!!!

Hope everyone had a blast!

Shoutout to Darby who finally made it to a show after years of almost making it to one. She also had tickets for Canada as well…offered to give them away to fellow fans. What a gem of a friend! Read her story below!

“Bought tickets for a concert at the Capital Theatre in NY last last year (but couldn’t go last minute.. THEN bought tickets at New Market (UK) as I have loads of friends there and was visiting… but again , had to reschedule my trip and gave my premier enclosure tickets away to another fan… THEN bought VIP tickets for the Boston show AND the Montreal tickets (our family has a summer home about two hours away and thought that might work as well).. in the end I can only make the Boston concert.”

Glad she made it!!
