Concord Pavilion, June 1, 2022
Shoreline Amphitheatre, June 2, 2022
Having just released their first record in seventeen years, (Tipping Point) iconic British duo Tears for Fears recently announced the first leg of their world tour, which will be stopping off in the Bay Area on June 1, 2022 at the Concord Pavilion, and June 2, 200 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Ca. The tour will also feature 90’s alt rock icons Garbage, who will be playing support for the shows.
“We couldn’t be more excited to start playing concerts again. We’ve missed seeing our friends on the road around the world and the energy of performing live,” said Curt Smith. “The Tipping Point has been a long time in the making and we are looking forward to playing our favorites from the new album as well as our classics from throughout the years,” shared Roland Orzabal.
Tears For Fears – Roland Orzabal (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Curt Smith (vocals, bass, keyboards) formed in Bath, England 1981. With 30 million albums sold worldwide, performing to countless sold-out audiences, and winning various awards, the band represent an inimitable intersection of pop palatability, clever and cognisant lyricism, guitar bombast, and new wave innovation. Iconic alternative rock band Garbage consists of lead singer Shirley Manson, multi-instrumentalists Duke Erikson and Steve Marker and drummer Butch Vig.
Garbage have been together as a band for over 25 years, with more than 17 million albums under their belt, multiple Grammy nominations and a James Bond theme song for the film The World is Not Enough.
The band’s latest, ferocious new album No Gods No Masters, released in June of this year, is an ambitious, indignant record – overtly socio/ political in tone – touching on themes ranging from global unrest, encroaching climate change, the Black Lives Matter movement, sexism and misogyny. According to music critics all over the globe, they have made the perfect record to articulate these strange and chaotic times.
Enjoying a career of nearly 30 years and counting, Garbage remain one of the most influential bands in alternative rock and one of the most respected live bands of their generation.
