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.
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!
Das Warten hat sich gelohnt: Fast 30 Jahre mussten Fans darauf warten. Am Samstagabend spielten Tears for Fears wieder ein Konzert im ausverkauften Tempodrom. ❤
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!
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. We joined this labour of love in 2004 and started going live publically in 2011 with the travel portion on this platform. Big thanks to all who contribute and share. 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.

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!

*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.
So privileged to have witnessed the so-far evolution of these two talented men, the survival journey of their music and the very human — of course imperfect — obstacle-jumping they’ve had to do along the way. Hold my heart indeed! #love#awe#loyalty#TFF
Your set was unbelievable you were both note perfect and the band was fantastic.Great to see the chemistry was still there .Well worth waiting to see you big shout out to Allison Moyet who smashed it as well
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.
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!
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.
I am home. I know there are many questions, but I ask that you respect the privacy of those affected at this time. Much love ❤️ pic.twitter.com/5kWTVJbZDy
We have a lot of great memories of travelling to Las Vegas and hanging out for a few days while we await the band to land and give us one of their epic musical nights. Tears for Fears concerts in Vegas are just EPIC! This one was thankfully indoors unlike some in the past (remember 2012’s heat – even the band asked for one during cooler weather LOL!). Thankfully each time the band has brought amazing, cool energy that creates a breeze of beautiful memories that have stayed with us. This was another one of those outstanding shows that you just can’t forget. There are so many wonderful posts about TFF Vegas 2017! Enjoy these videos from those that shared!
Be sure to follow @tearsforfears and also these wonderful fellow fans that posted videos from the show!
