LEVEL 42 - ETERNITY TOUR
FEATURING SPECIAL GUESTS THE BLOW MONKEYS
19-DATE TOUR KICKS OFF IN GLASGOW ON 2 OCTOBER 2018
London, Tues 24 October 2017: Hit makers Level 42 will embark on a 19-date Eternity Tour of the UK in October 2018 following last year’s sell-out shows in the UK and Europe. The dates will also feature special guests The Blow Monkeys. Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday, 27 October and are available at aegpresents.co.uk.
The Level 42 Eternity Tour 2018 kicks off at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall on Tues 2 October before travelling to cities including Manchester, Leicester, Reading, Portsmouth, York, Newcastle, Birmingham, Liverpool, Brighton, Bristol and finishing at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Thurs 25 October 2018.
Mark King, front man and bassist, said: “We can’t wait to get on the road again in the UK in 2018, it’s always such a hoot, and our fans are always a joy to play to. The band is ever evolving, and reinvention, both musically and in the way we present ourselves, has become something of a tradition for Level. The Eternity Tour will be a chance for us to showcase this once again, and we’ll be playing all our best material as well as some new tracks, and maybe a few deeper cuts too. We are also very happy to welcome The Blow Monkeys as special guests for the tour, how cool is that!”.
In a career spanning almost four decades, Level 42 have sold in excess of 30 million albums and their impressive back-catalogue includes mega hits “Lessons In Love”, “Something About You”, “Running In The Family” and “It’s Over”. In 2016 the band completed a sold-out 37-date ‘Sirens II Tour’ of the UK and Europe with critics praising the funk favourites for their ability to “light up the stage” (Birmingham Mail) and sound “as slick as ever” (Bournemouth Echo).
The Blow Monkeys will feature as special guests on the tour. The band are renowned for their seductive live performances and will treat audiences to hits including “Digging Your Scene”, “It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way” and their cover of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” which featured on the Dirty Dancing 1987 soundtrack. The band released a brand new album The Wild River earlier this month.
