Having A Blast with Tears for Fears at Hampton Court Palace

**Dedicated to Tamara, Gwen, Wendy, The Coopers and Shaun Smith.

The first two shows of the Tears for Fears Rule the World tour part II – sizzling summer edition left fans quite satisfied, to say the least. More like…THRILLED TO BITS! Roland brought back the Flying Wombat and family members in the UK, like Curt’s brother Shaun, were also in the audience. The venue is quite fitting for our Rock Royalty. It was an impeccable two days. Big thanks to Gwen, Wendy, Darren, Simon and many others who shared their entire experience from start to finish.

One of the highlights of the fan experience were fans, Gwen and Wendy’s, cool AirBNB that was right next to the venue. They were able to hear soundcheck loud and clear. Little Lulu was dancing along and is carrying the torch for Toddlers for Tears for Fears – and there are many. For the Millennials of the group (Gen Y) do you remember when that was us?!!

Roland’s jokes were fantastic and funny! It was great to see him in such great form. Curt was kind to pause for some pictures with fans and kept us on his own stroll as he arrived with daughter, Lady Diva last week. Enjoy all the highlights and moments from this magical show. Connect with fellow fans and be good to each other. This is a fan family motto! We’re soldiers of sound, loving Tears for Fears as we sally forth through this life.

Awesome Moments from TFF in Antwerp

We’re super happy to know that so many fans came out for this show. As travel fans we understand all the work that goes into just getting to the concert. Tears for Fears are more than just an exciting 90 minutes to an hour…they are an experience. Not only does it feel like your 80s cassette tapes have come to life, you, too, feel a euphoric and uplifting sensation that can’t be described. We try to capture the moments but no words can be assigned to explain it. You have to be there. If you haven’t had a chance to get a ticket to a show, reach out and let us know. We exist to help you get to shows!

Enjoy the photos from the shares earlier this year. Big thanks to Lael for helping us out with this recap.

Berlin’s Beloved Night with Tears for Fears

Our friends from Germany did not disappoint when capturing great moments in the show. The Good Man Mr. Smith was kind enough to snap pictures and share the journey with all followers. We’re so grateful! This is dedicated to Ronnie, Mathias, the Tempodrom staff and the Good Man himself, Curt Smith. We’re super grateful for all that has been provided from the show. To our friends in Germany who were able to somehow get tickets at the last minute, good on you!

Rough Translation: It was worth the wait: Fans had to wait for it for nearly 30 years. On Saturday night, Tears for Fears played a concert again at the sold out Tempodrome.

Curt took some great photos as did several other members of the band. We’ll focus on Mr. Smith’s snapshots of beautiful Berlin. The city has seen a lot! And to think they had to wait all those years for a show…you know several of them have got to be suffering from Superfanitis…somebody send those fans some extra merch, they’re gonna need it! May this post help them remember the magical moments of the return of TFF to Berlin. Enjoy! Cheers!

Really great close up of the stage from Mr. Olsen.

Tears for Fears Basking in the Love of Bournemouth

This post is dedicated to Andy B – loyal fan who waited nearly 35 years to see the band and Shaun Smith, a great world traveller who also happens to be the Good Man’s brother! We’re so happy for their contributions tonight to the travel fan site, allowing us to share their experience with the world!

And we do mean the world! As of today, this site has seen almost 20,000 visits per year since 2014.

This is all about featuring the absolutely fantastic moments of fans on tour and the great moments with the band…and there are plenty. Let’s dive into tonight’s show.

Cool Fan Milestones & Fun Moments

@curtsmith, you tweeted me happy birthday on my 15th, now I’m 21 and FINALLY got to see you live tonight, thank you and @rolandtff for the tunes, see you at Blenheim Palace… Play The Working Hour and I might just die 🙇‍♀️ #TearsForFears @tearsforfears – Maggie

Good Man Mr. Smith always tweets out his thank you! We love this!

“Thank you Bournemouth you warm & wonderful people. Now I understand why Eddie Howe likes it here 😍” -Curt Smith

Our bonus tonight is from Cindy P. She shares the Liverpool review which is thankfully focused on their music! The previous writers who seemed to be aching for bromance with Curt and Roland as if the band’s show was a Tinder swipe are completely absent here! We rejoice! Read Here

We’ll add more videos as they are received! Thank you for reading, sharing and enjoying! See you at the show!

TFF – Looking Good in Liverpool!

*Dedicated to Marcio Campos in Brasil! Thank you for connecting us with additional fans for this show!

Wow, Liverpool! How exciting and historic given the Beatles’ beginnings here! We spoke to Jamie before this show and got permission to post some photos (one above). We’re excited to have some pictures from their point of view. It’ll be nice to add to the archives.

Also got this great photo from Claire Hartshorn Photography! Thank you, Claire!

Mr. L came through on the guitar picks and yes we asked that they be put into the online store so we can stock up. The last time we had such exquisite ones was 2012 during Brit Week.

*Some items will not be visible as they are linked to Twitter accounts. We’ll be sure to post photos vs. links to accounts in future in case fans decide to go private going forward. You can ask to be friends which will allow you to see all the great pictures.

Hello and Goodbye Amsterdam. I landed in Gate D and had to bee line it to Gate E. No time to stop in any of the shops for souvenirs. I was only able to stop to give myself one last shot of lovenox in my stomach before my long flight to hopefully prevent me from getting another blood clot from my adventure. Once you get one you are always at risk. I made it on board my flight and am awaiting take off. I think it’s about 8.5 hours home from here. It’s truly been a great trip! I’m so glad I did this on my own. Thank you Tears For Fears for your music. I grew up listening since I was a young girl living in Central Wisconsin. When my little sister was maybe 2 years old she sang the chorus to Shout. We are 14 years apart. I hope you will continue to bless us with your music for many years to come. Hopefully someday I will be lucky enough to meet Roland and Curt. For all of you going to the European tour Have A Blast!!! It is awesome and I’m sure it will continue to get better and better each and every show. Gwen, I hope you get your meet and greet and keep getting those set lists! You need to make that scrapbook! Taking off now! See you back in America! Xoxo 🌻🎸❤️🌜🌞#bunnylousadventures #tearsforfears #tearsforfearstour2019 #bye @tearsforfearsmusic @tfftravelfans @cusackcat @jamiewollam @carinaround @charltonpettus

Scenes from Plato de Oro – Benefit Show @ Cafe Pinot

Wow! Whether you were on site or remote, we got to see a great show yesterday evening. Curt Smith and members of Tears for Fears including the awesome Rev. Charlton Pettus, author of Exit Strategy, performed one of their iconic acoustic sets last night at Cafe Pinot in Downtown Los Angeles. What a joy! We’re so happy that several amazing people were able to attend and represent! This post is dedicated to each of you and a BIG HONOURABLE mention to Artemisa, OWN Ambassador, for her check-ins, attendance at the show and continuous shares and follow-ups throughout the night. Such a lovely gesture.

 

Also want to thank Katia and YoGiNo for sharing glimpses from the night. Very kind of you all!

Thanks Katia! We were expecting this song and the Good Man Curt delivered!

Shoutout to 3TenEvents for this great video!

There’s still an opportunity to help others by visiting the Homeless Healthcare Los Angeles site. You can also follow them on twitter @TheHHCLA. Tell them you learned about them from Curt Smith of Tears for Fears. Let them know his fans are all about caring and supporting their efforts!

Thanks again!

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.
