Tears for Fears – Rock in Rio

We didn’t see this show coming…it was a huge and welcomed surprise! Many thanks to Marcio Campos who got all the footage for us as he always does.

We Always Love Las Vegas – TFF 2017

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!

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…

Tears for Fears Touching the Hearts of Tel Aviv 2017

The phone rang, people emailed, the media reached out… “Are you going to Tel Aviv? Can we speak with you?” Everyone was excited about this show! It was one of the first to be officially announced this year on the grapevine so to speak.

Here’s some footage from that show. Please be sure to reach out, follow and befriend all who are sharing! It’s awesome to build your circle with fellow Tears for Fears fans! Congratulations to Carina Round as she is expecting a child soon. We wish her well.

This post is dedicated to Liran Dan who was so excited about the show and reached out to pour his heart and soul into the greetings for the band. G-d bless you!

Love It When Tears for Fears Come to Canada!

Tears for Fears in Canada… dedicated to Michel-Ange, his mother and Penny!

From Andye

Forgive me guys, I was supposed to be at this show. I want to thank all the cool people that reached out beforehand and made their way to Toronto, Quebec and Montreal! I love Canada…particularly Toronto. I’ll never forget when I moved there briefly (was returned to the states kicking and screaming – I DID NOT want to leave and often wonder if I had only stood my ground and just stayed what would have become of me). While there, I was looking out the window near Ryerson Theatre and the band The Bad Plus came on the radio. I had no idea that their jazz version of Everybody Wants to Rule the World wasn’t actually Tears for Fears themselves doing something fancy. When they said that “they’ll be performing later that month” I thought they meant TFF. I literally wanted to change my plane ticket and just stay longer eventhough I knew I had to leave the country on x date. Fast forward almost 10years later, I’m writing this practically crying cause I love my Canadian friends so much that I’ve literally tried to get a few to move here. So far, we’ve had a handful…all Tears for Fears fans!!

Here’s a great note from Michel-Ange who was at the show last night. G-d bless him!

This is a message for Tears For Fears !!
HI Tears For Fears !!
On this thursday, i wish you a huge welcome to Montréal from one of your biggest fan !!
I’m Michel-Ange Rodriguez from Montréal, student and artist ! I’m waiting your awesome show in Place Des Arts, my sit is on third row (GROUND FLOOR CC 7) !
I have been a big fan since my teenage years. The first single i heard on a radio is “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”. This first single who have made me stronger as an individual !
It’s a big honor and pleasure to draw the hyper realistic portrait of the album “Song From The Big Chair” that I did.
To draw people’s portrait is a talent of mine. Without been shy, i’ll show you this big portrait after the show ! My big dream is to meet you and take a photo with you both after the show, if it’s possible !
If you want, i would like to show you the portrait that reflect my passion for drawing 🙂 !
Thank you very much Tears For Fears to have taken the time to read my message !
Will be a pleasure to meet in Montréal thursday !
ROCK’N ROLL TEARS FOR FEARS !!!!!

Ticket giveaways were in abundance for this show …including some from our fellow fans

Cool captures from Curt Smith!

And these cool thank yous are too darn cute!

Do me a big favour, please befriend and follow the people on each of these links! We’re all about appreciation and saying thanks. Much love to everyone who posted, reached out and contributed! #FansForLife

Hope to post more after the storm passes….raining and lightening.
Talk soon!

Tears for Fears x New York = Love!

This is dedicated to our #TravelFan team member Cindy who for years has followed a number of bands capturing the amazing shows and archiving them with attention and care. You can always count on Cindy aka ConcertChick. She is easy to spot with her gorgeous golden curls and perfect make-up down to the shoes honey! The nail polish and the glam go hand in hand as she represents the superfans of her favourite bands, Tears for Fears being on her list. For the record, she also does a darn good job looking after Duran Duran concerts, who, as we all remember, are good friends of TFF.

We also want to say a big thank you to @80smusiclovr for her follows and reports back on the good, the bad and the tough life of a fan following a band. There are few things easy about this. Also, much love to the fans that had to stand in line for a long time as they entered? Was reading concert notes and understanding the fan experience. Heaven bless everyone who was patient as they made it inside. Venue was massive, eh? 🙂 It looked full of fans and concert goers! Great!!

Sending Good Man Curt some sugar! #Mwaaaah! #FanLove #SweetGestures

It looks like hopping a plane and just showing up but those of you who know the drill understand that just like the band, we too are haulin’ it across country to be present. Some travel alone, some follow as a flock…either way, there’s an unspeakable amount of work involved including taking time away from jobs, family and making a living for ourselves as musicians, writers and industry contributors. We appreciate what TFF does to get to each city because we’re experiencing it as well. Shoutout to the awesome flight attendants who help musicians and fans get from point A to point B with ease! Enjoy this collection of concert clips and relive the amazing memories and magic the band bestows upon us!

Were there any issues? Thankfully only a few!! 🙂
Sadly we don’t always have a smooth sailing as we jump aboard the SS DelaQ to go to the shows. This is a double ticket with a total of 3 sets of musicians… Allen Stone, TFF and Hall & Oates. While our primary focus is Tears for Fears, we understand and respect that there are H&O fans in the audience. We as TFF’s crew tend to stand and dance the ENTIRE time. Given that we are usually in the VIP section that means we are up front in the first 10-15 rows doing our routine like clockwork. With respect to the Deadheads who followed faithfully alongside GD, we, too, have solid routine of movements and swoon the whole show. So, those who may be looking to take a load off and have a seat and a drink are probably annoyed by our enthusiasm. Too bad!

We spend on average $5000 each to travel to handful of shows on these tours. We do not come to sit and have a silent night while the band of our dreams is giving us 110% on stage. No apologies here! Get up and join us or deal with us wiggling around. We paid as well. We also do not believe any venue should follow suit and expect people to stay seated during a CONCERT!! It’s a CONCERT! This is not the OPERA or the symphony where staying seated is expected and respectable. This is a rock concert at the end of the day and we as fans are going to respect the band by standing up and singing along. That’s how we show our love and dedication and we hope others understand that. We do not have a reputation of getting drunk and being insane…we simply stand up and show respect. Please respect us in return.

Kudos to all who stood their ground and sang…especially to those who were not in VIP and got hurled insults because they came to represent. In future, contact us so we can get seats together. We don’t travel in numbers for no reason…it’s for safety’s sake. Goal is to have a good time and build new fan family ties! Continue to enjoy!
