Thank you! Great show too, eh? So much extra fun and conversation! We love band convos!

Rough week, very touching marquee

Awesome Photos: Phoenixx Music Mag & J.MO were on it!

As we continue to post (in no particular order) flashbacks from the shows thus far, I’m reminded of the time I lived in Detroit. My grandfather was working for Motown and ran a fish market. Music was everywhere…all the time. Though from a mixed national background and relatives from here, there and everywhere we united under British Rock. I was a toddler in the 80s (barely alive) but I remember it like it was yesterday and I’m so grateful that all of these bands are still powerful and sweeping the new generation by storm as well. Nothing compares to these great groups…even their new material is making a move on our souls. They’ve still got “it” and us! Especially TFF! -AA

Thanks for reading… more to come!

Tears for Fears Taking the World by Storm in Tulsa!

Tears for Fears Tulsa

We had our wonderful core travel fan team on the ground for this show, first one on the 2017 tour. You can hear several  of the group screaming with delight in one of the videos and it’s soooo nice. Again, this was the first show on this 29+ city visit and it was awesome! It’s so hard to write these recaps of shows as each year passes because the excitement grows beyond anything one can ever imagine. We are appreciative of the time and energy put into every concert by the band and the fans who travel alongside in support! Many thanks to Silver Kitty for snapping photos and providing visuals of the experience! Huge thanks to Bobby for driving! Carolyn and Becky Boom Boom for logistics and rentals! It’s all team work!!



Huge thanks to all of our fellow travellers who fly great distances to scream and shout their admiration throughout nearly every performance. We did a calculation and believe it or not, if you’re going to each show, paid the VIP ticket price, add airfare plus hotel fees …then you’re spending $20,000+ USD. That’s a lot of love to say the least! There are many that are doing 2-4 shows and THAT TOO is a A LOT! You are loved and deserve a fan conference!

Roland Tulsa


Be sure to make friends, subscribe to each other’s YouTube channels and follow on Instagram. The more friends you make, the bigger the shows will be and remain until the guys call it a day! Keep it going! 🙂

There are very few videos of this show because security was insane and wouldn’t let fans do much more than stand there and listen…

Please continue to follow along via @papasfans for recaps of our fan experiences!
Plenty of shows left to go… We’ve got footage and shares from a ton and will post as we go along. So much to upload!

So many videos from fans – mostly on Instagram. 🙂

Thank you, Alan Griffiths

There are so many supportive people behind, beside and even in front of Tears for Fears. Sadly, too many are practically invisible. Those we do get to see such as road crew, managers, family (from time to time) and others that slip in and out of view as we approach the venues and stages or steal a minute of the band’s time in a hotel lobby, are extremely important. It’s hard to count the number of people that truly make “Tears for Fears” a memorable, amazing entity and experience, be it in person or online. A visible and beloved person in this myriad of TFF members was Alan Griffiths. He was a key component, genius and mastermind in the making of Elemental, Raoul and the Kings of Spain plus the timeless Tomcats Screaming Outside (Roland’s solo album). Fans acknowledged him a lot, we appreciated him. He was so important to these aforementioned works. Learning of his unexpected passing from Roland this morning left several of us very sick and disturbed. There are few things worse than losing a loved one or a musician. Alan Griffiths was both.

Thank You Mr Griffiths

Tim Palmer, another person that is interwoven with Tears for Fears and a person we also consider a band member, wrote on his FB wall today the below. We didn’t include his profile because we are so dedicated to giving the band privacy. Just know that this was a portion of what Mr. Palmer expressed.

Tim Palmers Words (2)

From Tim Palmer

“This is beyond a loss, it’s just tragic…he was a big part of why so many of us love the band. He, too, was Tears for Fears. This is a really sad moment…really sad.” -A. Andinha, Tears for Fears Travel Fan Team moderator

…so you see….an alumni/member of Tears for Fears passed away today. This is hard. This is a day we’ve dreaded and feared for years. It happened today. Let us comfort each other and be very supportive of one another and remember to continue to be appreciative, loving and supportive of ALL members of the band. Each person plays a huge role and has brought and continues to bring us to a place and state of bliss combined with a euphoric happiness time and time again. We’re grateful for Mr. Griffiths’ work and just like Roland said,  he will be missed. Thank you, Alan Griffiths. Thank you so much for your time and dedication to art and a band that has carried us through so much of our lives. We pray we see you again when the saints go marching in. Amen.


DD Horns Album Release Party

DD Horns album release party will take place this weekend! This is the band of the awesome Mr. Moyer and we’re thrilled to support him and his work. One of our collaboration wishes is to have DD Horns open for Tears for Fears on a future tour. We’re just throwing that out into the Universe…that and Skittles showers…we are all about that life!


We’ve been talking about Mr. Moyer since his appearance with the band back in 2014 at the Wiltern as the saxophonist for The Working Hour. His contribution and time with the band that evening left a lasting impact and we’re stuck on him and his music. It’s awesome. If you’re Los Angeles this weekend, this is the place to be…with DD Horns! Check out the information and be sure to get there early!


Follow: @DDHorns on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

And of course follow @tearsforfears because you never know when these two may collab again…you don’t want to miss that info!
