Tears for Fears – Perfect in Padova

To say the Tears for Fears tour part I was fun is an understatement. Not only did people attend more than one show and in some cases literally follow them like loyal soldiers of sound, the band was warm, kind and caring from start to finish. It gives us a lot of hope about part II which begins in just a few weeks! Get ready to sing, go over the set list and show up! Arrive early, meet with fellow fans and make some of the best memories of your lives with Curt, Roland and team leading the way! We’re so excited as fans to have this opportunity to follow the band around. Don’t take our word for it…check out these videos and photos from Padova (Padua), Italia! These fans had a blast!

Show Synopsis: Austin Was Awesome!


Austin was …AWESOME! That is the consensus from various fans and the band themselves. The show had a crowded house, with a sold out floor section and two fairly full balcony and VIP areas. Curt tweeted about the night’s success as did others. Several pictures are floating around of the guys on stage. It was certainly a successful evening and a great first show for the band. We’re all excited and happy for them as well as all who are on the road travelling from concert to concert.

Critics? Perhaps just one? A person who left the show before Everybody Wants to Rule the World was played. Now in the past 2 years the show started with EWTRTW and while it still does, it’s not the version from Songs From the Big Chair. We’ll leave it at that. But it is on the set list and it’s not near the start but also not quite near the end so we’re hoping that the person was in a rush to get somewhere and that’s the only reason they skipped out early. We wouldn’t mention at all but we have to be fair.

The Crowds!!
There have been no reports of miserable, rowdy folks or bad crowds for this gen am event. In fact, it’s been quite the opposite? Only a few called the mass “maddening” but that is a lot of people and well…we’re glad everyone is happy and safe.

CD posted some shared photos from online, great picture! Hugs to the photog!

Where’s The Set List?!! Probably in the hands of a fortunate fan. What’s on the set list…well, let’s see… ha! No. NO spoilers on our end. But we will say it’s got some new(er) material and not just from Everybody Loves A Happy Ending. The set, we feel, is worth your time. If you don’t have a ticket to the upcoming shows please go to Ticketmaster or Pabst’s Festival page and get one. You won’t regret it.

Where Are The Show Tweets From the Band?
Perhaps they are busy getting ready, we don’t know. But we’ll do our best to do a few from a fan’s perspective in the next 24 hours.

Did Roland Wear Plaid? Did they wear their fancy suits from Hong Kong?
No and No

Any Fan Events or Gatherings & MeetUps?
Couple of the travel fans are trying to decide on the best place to meet up on Friday night in Oklahoma. Follow @papasfans for updates on that.
