An electro-pop sensation!
From Don’t You Want Me to (Keep Feeling) Fascination, The Human League have made themselves firm synth-pop favourites all over the world and can count Madonna, Robbie Williams and Lady Gaga among their fans.
Forming in Sheffield in the late 70s, the group - fronted by Phil Oakey and long-running vocalists Susan Ann Sulley and Joanne Catherall - came to prominence with the release of their third album Dare which featured the 1981 Christmas number one, Don’t You Want Me.
Hits Love Action (I Believe in Love), Mirror Man and Together in Electric Dreams followed as did four top ten albums, eight top ten singles in the UK and two number one singles in the US.
Since the 80s, the band have sold 20 million records worldwide and released their 9th album Credo in 2011. And with over 30 years’ of experience under their belts, we’re positive this is going to be a truly poptastic performance.
With special guest Howard Jones
Southampton-born singer-songwriter Howard Jones helped to define the sound of the 80s with his synth-pop classics New Song, No One is to Blame and What is Love? Howard, who is a classically trained pianist, reached number one and number two in the album charts with Human’s Lib and Dream into Action in 1984 and 1985 respectively. Howard, who performed Hide and Seek at Live Aid, is still a very active musician, and has toured extensively since the 80s.
