TFF Lit Up Leeds Looking Luxurious!

*This post is dedicated to Gwen who has just gone above and beyond for SO MANY fans this tour. We envision a future fun photo with she and Mr. Orzabal. Picture them in a big laugh together post-show. We can see it! Thank you, Gwen!! You’re forever a hero!

The reception for Alison Moyet throughout the tour has been terrific as expected! She’s our queen and we love her! She owns that stage! We’re going to miss her when this tour ends…and several of us are just hoping this is not the end of the Moyet x TFF connection. WE WANT MORE!! Big thanks to Gwen for supplying all the photos and contributions!

Great Night in Glasgow!

Soooo much love in that venue tonight! Ohhhmigaah! Enjoy highlights from the show in Glasgow!

And loyal fan and continued supporter, Stuart P, confirms that Lady Moyet is going strong! The reviews and love for her continue to flow! And the venues continue to fill up. Here’s his photo pre-show.

Then there was Curt’s view… NICE!

Further down the way were these two lovely people!

MVP Gwen, the Tears for Fears tour resident, took this incredible picture of Curt. Isn’t it fantastic?

For a few of us the tour is coming to a pause until May. Gwen is counting down her final shows for 2019. It is a very hard thing to deal with and often times we have to find time to regroup. The amount of euphoric fun isn’t something you can put into words. So stepping off that tour and getting back into the real world is like being dropped into the Twilight Zone. You wonder how on earth you ever dealt with your day to day prior to the majestic experience. You find yourself craving… “more tour!”

Ms. Robinson shared this earlier today!

We here you Gwen…we here you! #FsnSolidarity #UntilIDrown

TFF – Absolutely Awesome in the O2

“I have had the unbelievable opportunity to play some amazing shows and places in my career, but tonight definitely is one of the highlights of my journey…. O2 Arena, London, England.” – Jamie Wollam (aka Drummer Genius)

Tweet of the day was this beauty from ‘All on the Board’

from all on the board

This was a really big deal. The O2 sold out! Capacity is close to 20,000. There was literally no extra space in this entire venue – every seat was purchased and or occupied. Tonight solidified the fact that Tears for Fears are indeed one of the top bands of all times. Their work and ability is timeless. Their message eternal!

Get a better scope of the space with Kadelbach’s video.

Lady Alison Moyet was crystal clear and amazing as always! Check out this video from Cheryl Cision!

One of our favourite moments during any show is the proximity of Curt and Roland. Don’t ask us why. It’s something about these two angelic beings getting close together that excites us on a whole other level! Big thanks to Mr. Ibarra for this share!

Merch for the win!

If you can’t wait until you get to a show then consider buying early from the merch store online http://www.tearsforfears.com. Items are arriving pretty quick.

Curt got a cool salute from fans. Check out this quick sing-a-long and hello to his family from his ‘fan family.’

Roland first began handing the microphone down into the audience in 2011 at the Wiltern. He’s continued the tradition quite kindly. Here he is in action!

TFF’s Big Surprise in Brighton

Let’s get straight to the point…they played Suffer the Children. Now, a few nights ago we posted a video from the In My Minds Eye treasure box. That video is a full show of The Hurting plus two songs from SFTBC. And no one in YEARS has heard that song live…until today. The internet lit up!

And MVP Darren H got an audio recording of it. He wanted badly to make sure he didn’t break the rules so he didn’t hold his phone up. Mad respect for this!

Gwen got a copy as well. Tilt your head so you can see it…

This post is dedicated to Andrew W. He has been loyal and he shows up! Here he is with Drummer Genius Jamie Wollam 🙂

And wow, thanks Mr. Reardon!

Big thanks to all the Tears for Fears Travel Fans who are modestly travelling alongside the band, zipping in and out of shows. Some are working and still finding a way to make it to shows. You are troopers! Much love to you from your fellow fans! Reach out if you need anything! We’re on standby.

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.

Tears for Fears Denver, CO 2017

When Ro smiles at me

Several people made long hauls across the country to go to this show specifically because the venue is just so awesome! Though dedicated strictly to Carrie on Twitter, we appreciate everyone that wrote in and road tripped literally to be there. Some left us photos in our FB inbox. Please send them to our email papasfans at gmail so we can feature you respectfully in this blog with all credit to you and your work. 🙂 FB doesn’t permit photo downloads from the FB inbox.

Big thanks to Carrie for keeping in touch throughout her way to the show!

Shoutout to all the families who make Tears for Fears a family affair!

Again, this venue is awesome. For the few videos we do have from public shares, you’ll hear how well the band sounds…just angelic! Have a listen.

Good Times in Glendale, Arizona! TFF 2017

Tears For Fears Travel Fan Blog Write – Up: Glendale (Phoenix) – Gila River Arena by Lael, TFF Travel Fan Team

Kenya and I arrived just on time, as the gridlock in Phoenix rush hour traffic was much worse than I thought it would be, especially considering we had use of the carpool lane. Opening act Allen Stone started earlier than 7:00 pm, and Tears For Fears took the stage at 7:15 pm. We made it to our seats on the floor just as TFF were taking the stage!! They sounded wonderful, and kept the volume at a nice level, considering the size of this arena.

Jamie Wollam was hitting on all cylinders, and his style of drumming just seems to suit larger venues. Actually, I feel that arenas bring out the optimum performance in TFF as well, due to the sing – along anthem style of their biggest hits. Other hits like “ELAHE” also shimmered in this setting.

I ended up dancing and singing, and remained standing during all of TFF’s set, even though in parts it felt kind of strange, almost a little inappropriate, as most of the audience was sitting down in the middle of their set. I loved the lighting effects that TFF had in place for “Change”, as these effects brought the song’s clean sound and pointed message to life.

The highlight of their concert was Kenya receiving a shout – out from Curt Smith, on the intro to “Shout”. I will never forget the look on Kenya’s face when she realized he had said her name! It took both of us a couple moments to realize it, as Curt Smith said her name in his adorable British accent, and she just did not believe it at first. I then turned to her, “Yeah, he said your name…”

After the concert, we met up with Valerie Matherne and her cousin, Deanna. We ended up going to this nondescript taco bar at Westgate, and had non – alcoholic drinks, as the kitchen had already closed and it was getting late, with long drives still ahead…
