Tears for Fears Touching Hearts in Europe (Tour 2019 Part II)

Dedicated to Lael, Valerie and Patricia – long time fans (over 20 years)

Snippet from Lyon

Europe was blessed with some absolutely incredible Tears for Fears shows this year. The reactions, reviews and full on dedication by so many fans to follow suit with more than one show must be acknowledged. Of course people have been going to multiple shows for many years but this time it’s documented, we know who is showing up and being present. It’s not easy to take off that much time from your job and head out on tour. For me, the moderator, that’s part of my contract when I take a role. I want the opportunity to be with my band. I’m not working toward much else so I admire those who make Tears for Fears a priority as so many of us have. What is the benefit? Healing! There’s no other way to put it. It’s HEALING! This band has healing properties in their music, the experience of seeing them live is equal to a miraculous visit from the heavens. Let the photos and videos speak for themselves. Huge thanks to Lael, Valerie and many others who kept in touch throughout the summer to share photos, keep us posted on meetups and truly created an incredible community that Tears for Fears can be proud of 365 days a year.

As shown in the schedule, Tears for Fears visited the following European cities: Luxembourg, Amneville, Bohn, Den Haag, Tilloloy, Rokslide Festival, Zottegem, Herouville-Saint-Clair, Rome, Lucca, Munchen, Bruchsal, Mainz, Nimes, Lyon, Charhaix, and Valencia. Please enjoy highlights from these shows and connect with other fans who shared the material to form tighter bonds. We are ONE TFF Fan Family!

There’s a lot of content here so please take a moment and let it load so you can enjoy it all. Cheers!

Big thanks to Valerie for the gifts and candy the band enjoyed!

Bill in Lyon
Bill works hard! He’s been with the band for many years, helping make sure they look and sound great on stage. He’s currently enjoying a month in Japan.

Please be sure to join Valerie’s group if you’re in Europe and speak French. She provides a great service to our Francophone members

As a team of  dedicated fans who travel to follow the band, we’ve been gathering and celebrating Tears for Fears for over 2 decades. In the last 7 years (started archiving our travel in 2010), we’ve made a lot of efforts to be inclusive and keep our fellow fans in the know. Some of our fun includes where to meet up for photos, notifications on the band’s prompts to hang out and spend a few minutes with fellow fans and more. Many of us are back on the road again for #Tour2017. Below is an updated list of the full 2017 Tears for Fears concert schedule (global) and those who have checked-in to say where they’ll be during the tour. Cheers-cheers!

Dedicated to Valerie who will be in Arizona and to Katie who cashed out her 401K (not uncommon) to see the band this year. We wish everyone safe travels and a great time!

Air Travel: We suggest Delta or Southwest – please be sure to join their frequent flyer club programs. There is no extra charge and the perks are worth it. In 2014, we were able to use points each time we wanted to see the band. You can earn enough points for free tickets, free hotel stays and more.

Tears for Fears Concert Confirmation: Tel Aviv

tff-cover1

Yes, we knew about two weeks or more ago, no we couldn’t say anything until the band tweeted it first. You know that’s the rule. But we’ve got your hotel and flight info for those who are looking to make the trip. This post is dedicated to Jonathan Livnat’s cousin who has been waiting to see the guys for a very long time. Wishing his cousin the best and hopefully a handshake and photo with the guys. Long time coming…

So, here’s the info. Tears for Fears will be in concert on the 5th of July in Tel Aviv, nation of Israel. There is a substantial VIP section for this show and it is worth it. Good seats are still available so do try to get one of these. Average price is good too. For approx 800 shekel ($225 USD) you can get 6th row Roland or Curt’s side.

Now, about Tel Avivwe know musicians there, not everyday people. So this was a bit of a challenge for us because most of our friends who lived there now live here in the United States. We’re relying on them for tips to navigate the city.

That flight though… you might want to plan a whole holiday around this one because Delta is in the 1000s on a roundtrip. This is a holiday week in the United States and flights will not be cheap. You can see them on Delta.com and or check with your favourite carrier.

Hotels: Due to the flight price, we’re not going for anything too costly, please see the Yam Hotel in Tel Aviv. You’re looking at about $1,000 USD to be there for a week and we think it’s worth it. Let us know via FB email if this isn’t working for you. We have a few travel fans already in the area who may be able to assist with a better suggestion. Heck, knowing how we are, you may end up staying with one for the week. We’re all rather chummy like that.

Ground Transportation: Use Uber – no questions asked. This is going to be the more reliable option. If you want to book a driver for the week, we can discuss it via email.

Meet and Greets: We’ve heard absolutely nothing on this thus far. We’ll be sure to tweet via #RollCall if any opportunities arise. Our inbox and text messages prove that many there wish to shake the guys’ hands. Hope this helps! We’ll be in touch with more info as it comes in and is okay to share.
