Exit Strategy, by Reverend Charlton Pettus #TFFBookClub

I came home and found Exit Strategy on my door step. So I dived into it immediately after tearing out of my work clothes – a black polka dot dress with a poofy petticoat and into my Tears for Fears pajamas. I had planned to read it using the Kindle app if the book didn’t arrive in time to start today’s awaited first chapter read. But I’m sitting here like my former grade school librarian eating this book for dinner.

One of the first things that caught my eye is the use of angel numbers in the “before.” I’ve been bombarded with 444, 1117 and the scariest of all 11:11 for a few years now. Reverend Pettus has begun with 12:34. That’s the number for step by step, pacing and so much more.

After staying in Boston with Deb in Jamaica Plains this past year post-tour for the TFF 2017 Wrap Up as we call it, I squealed as mental images surfaced by street name. I also finished a series of novels by a wild author and there is the mention of car speeds that end a few chapters. Those were my idea to that author. Kind of exciting to see them here too.

Why does this matter? Perhaps I’m hyper vigilant but I find it odd that anything to do with Tears for Fears, be it remotely and removed to a degree (e.g. Roland and now, the Reverend’s publications), coincidentally have very strong connections to our waking and real lives. It’s beyond coincidence at this point. While I’ll sit back and read this without vigilance, I’m pretty sure enough of will leave me with my hair standing on top of my head and chilly with goosebumps.

Looking forward to listening and reading the reactions, thoughts and deep moments with fellow fans.

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!

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!

Thanks for reading!
