In addition to Roland and Curt, Charlton Pettus (guitar), Jamie Wollam (drums), Doug Petty (piano/keys/& more) and Carina Round (vocals) help make Tears for Fears who they are today. Recent news on these amazing members is below.



Charlton wrote a book called Exit Strategy – it’s intriguing and suspenseful. We, the travel fans, began a book club where we devoured it from start to finish. Feel free to share your thoughts on our travel fan page. We’re always up for reading.

Carina Round recently had a beautiful baby girl. We wish she and her family well.

The Long Time Fans

There’s a lot of us and for the most part, many of us keep in touch and travel to shows together…hence the term travel fans  (or as Curt & Charlton kindly call us ‘Kooks’ after a funny travel moment in 2011 and Curt’s record company). We go to as many performances and appearances as possible and have been doing so since the 80s. This site is dedicated to travel fan info and helping each other stay in touch and get to shows safely. We’re grateful that the band has been so kind to let us spend time with them and their families when their schedules permit – oftentimes squeezing in a moment for a hug or picture and we appreciate it. We live for their art! It keeps us alive and well. For us, the good life = Tears for Fears!


Big shoutout to all those who travel near and far, to show after show basking in the phenomenal music of Tears for Fears. We trust going forward we’ll be able to show more support to the alumni as well.

We’re glad the band approves! 🙂
