A new tour has been announced, featuring a ton of ’80s one-hit-wonders, including Missing Persons, The Motels, John Parr, The Vapors, Real Life, The Escape Club, and of course A Flock of Seagulls.
That means it will be possible to hear “Wild Wild West” (The Escape Club), “Turning Japanese” (The Vapors), “I Ran” (A Flock of Seagulls), “Send Me an Angel” (Real Life), “St. Elmo’s Fire” (John Parr), “Words” (Missing Persons), and “Only The Lonely” (The Motels) all in a single show.
And don’t worry: None of the bands will play for very long, so you won’t have to be subjected to their boring non-hits or a dreaded “new song.”
The lineup will vary from show to show, but they promise that A Flock of Seagulls, When in Rome UK members Farrington & Mann, Boys Don’t Cry, The Vapors, Real Life, and John Parr will be at every show.
Bow Wow Wow and Wang Chung will appear at some shows. They’ve announced dates from August 2nd in Coney Island to September 7th in Vegas.
