Tears for Fears

TEARS FOR FEARS announce plans for their first UK and Ireland Tour since 2005 with 8 dates in 2018, including a Dublin Show with special guest Alison Moyet at the 3Arena on 2 May 2018. These shows will be the first leg of the "Rule The World Tour 2018".

Beyond their own output, Tears For Fears have influenced many artists today including being sampled by Kanye West, The Weeknd, David Guetta, Drake, and more, while also being covered by Lorde, Adam Lambert, Gary Jules, and Disturbed, to name a few. Meanwhile, classic songs figure prominently everywhere from The Wire and Donnie Darko to Straight Outta Compton and Mr. Robot.

Everybody Loves A Happy Ending was released after a 15 years hiatus in 2004, which rekindled the creative fire between the duo. Breaking another quiet spell, the boys engaged in a three-year touring whirlwind across North America, Japan, South Korea, Manila, and South America beginning in 2010.  2013 saw them return with their first recorded music in a decade: a cover of Arcade Fire’s “Ready to Start.”
