A Flock of Seagulls on Sunday 17th September 2023
Get ready to ride the wave. A Flock of Seagulls are on tour and bringing their new wave hits to the stage with all the energy their fans and audiences remember. The band's peak success was found in the early 1980s and they are returning on tour to reunite with the generation that made them famous.
Fans of the band will be thrilled to hear hits from their youth such as 'I Ran (So Far Away,)' 'Space Age Love Song,' 'Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You' and 'The More You Live, the More You Love.' The tour promises to deliver nostalgia and new memories to all who attend.
A Flock of Seagulls was started by Mike Score and his brother Ali in 1979 in Liverpool. In 1982 the group’s third single, I Ran (So Far Away) became a worldwide hit, most notably reaching number 1 in Australia and the top 10 in the US and New Zealand (where the band became popular). The parent album A Flock of Seagulls and another singleSpace Age Love Song were also successful. In late 1982 the band found major success in their home country with Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You) (first single from their next album) which reached the top 10. As it turned out, 1982 would prove to be the peak year of their commercial and critical success. The band is regarded as breaking the ground for other musical acts during the advent of the video music area.
Although parodied in later years, the band is now recognized as a pioneering act, capturing the zeitgeist of their time, particularly with multi-layered hits such as Space Age Love Song, Telecommunication and Modern Love is Automatic.
