Why see Tears for Fears?

the tipping point part ii

The phenomenal 80s icons Tears for Fears will be picking up where they left off last year by going on The Tipping Point Tour Part II this summer! They will be accompanied by the Californian rock band Cold War Kids on all dates. Kicking off in Atlantic City before wrapping up in Los Angeles, they'll be bringing all your favorite hits from the album, alongside the synth-pop perfection of hits like 'Shout','Mad World,' and 'Everybody Wants to Rule The World'.

Famous sons of the picturesque city of Bath, England, Tears for Fears were formed in 1981 and are made up of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Riding the 80s electronic explosion, they gained global recognition in 1985, with second LP, Songs From The Big Chair. Now synonymous with the new wave, the duo's synthesizer-laden pop combined with vulnerable honest lyrics, has proven not only highly influential but still remains as transporting as ever.

Incredible Concert

We’ grew up with Tears for Fears’ music and we’ve seen them in concert before. However, this last concert at Hollywood Bowl was historic, truly one of the best concerts ever. We took our two teenage daughters and sung our hearts out along with Roland and Kurt whose voices were still so clear and so powerful. The the bowl was packed and 20,000 stood on their feet to sing Shout! It was an incredible concert! ... Read more

"it felt like everything was gonna be OK"

Being a big fan of Tears for Fears having grown up in the 80s and never really getting to have seen them together, this was a bucket list and the most anticipated concert I have ever experienced. The show was as close to perfection as it can come, the energy, the vibe, the magic that was on stage was nothing short of extraordinary after all this time. From beginning to end, it was a masterpiece. For one and a half hours this show made it feel like everything was gonna be OK...and world was falling back to a time of hope a timer promise time of mutual respect that once was. You actually could feel the happy in the thousands of people that were there no animosity no hate just pure pleasure and joy for the experience. Being an avid music lover concert goer this was some thing I had never experienced in my 50 years. If you get a chance, don't miss this show it truly is brilliant and all its facets. Thank you Tears for Fears for bringing back hope. ... Read more

Awesome at the Hollywood Bowl

This band gave me my soul in the 80s and I always wanted to see them. Last night under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl was a concert I will never forget. They jammed. Everyone was singing and dancing, it felt like I was clubbing again in my early 20s. Thank you Curt and Roland. You made my year. ... Read more
