SOFT CELL will perform a live open-air concert at St Anne’s Park on Saturday 3rd June 2023, with very special guests ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK and HEAVEN 17, subject to licence.
Celebrating the most defining music of the 80’s, this seismic synth-pop spectacle brings a line-up of three acts who continue to release ground-breaking new music.
Soft Cell (Marc Almond and Dave Ball) released four UK Top 20 albums between 1981-1984, spawning hits such as Memorabilia’, ‘Torch’, ‘Say Hello, Wave Goodbye’; and of course their boundless, era-defining No.1 hit ‘Tainted Love’.
After performing to a sold-out crowd at The O2 in London in 2018, 2022 spawned a brand new Top 10 album ‘*Happiness Not Included’, featuring hit single Purple Zone (with Pet Shop Boys), as well as recent UK and North American tours celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut album, ‘Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret’.
Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) were formed by Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys in the late 70s, and are known for their trademark electronic sound, achieving hits throughout the 80s including ‘Souvenir’, 'Joan of Arc', ‘If You Leave Me’, and the anti-war anthem ‘Enola Gay’.
Formed after a split from The Human League, Heaven 17 were formed in 1980 in Sheffield, and achieved chart success with hits including ‘(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang’, ‘Play To Win’, and ‘Temptation’, cementing their status as one of the most forward-thinking bands of the decade.
Tickets from €49.90 including booking fee go on sale at 9am Friday 9th December at Ticketmaster.ie
