The Human League

Thu 16 Dec 2021 (subject to change) Doors 6:30pm

Celebrating forty years since the release of DARE, The Human League will be performing this classic album in it’s entirety, as well as other hits from their extensive back catalogue, across arenas and theatres in the UK throughout December 2021, with special guests The Human the Thompson Twins' Tom Bailey and Altered Images.

Originals of the British New Wave/Synth scene The Human League dominated the airwaves and charts throughout the 80’s with their dark yet stylish post punk electronica, which remains as fresh, current and highly influential today as it did with the release of DARE on the 16th October 1981.

On it’s release DARE instantly became a landmark album for the British music scene, spreading an exciting new sound to the US and Europe and helping give birth to a whole new era in music. With lyrics firmly embedded in the global politics of the day the band had an image that influenced
fashion trends and their style, sound and message changed the face of early 80’s club culture, paving the way for the decades of electronic music and clubbing that were to follow. The band are widely regarded as leaders of the second British Invasion of the US music market and, to this
day, remain one of the most highly played bands on MTV worldwide.

DARE contained four hit singles, including the No 1 ‘Don’t You Want Me’ which is arguably the poppiest track on the album, staying in the charts for five weeks and making the 1981 Xmas No.1 slot. The album earnt them a Brit Award the following year and the band continued to grace the top 10 for the next fifteen years, with a resurgence of popularity and commercial success in every decade that has followed.

Without doubt their music has inspired generations of fans and influenced many of todays artists.
The Human League hail from Sheffield and were very much part of an emerging scene there in the late 70’s/early 80’s. Founder member Philip Oakey then took the band on to huge commercial success after first recruiting two female vocalists, Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley. This
three person vocal sound created a unique band line up and all three members have remained in the group to this day.

Along with ‘Don’t You Want Me' singles from DARE including; ‘Love Action’ ‘The Sound Of The Crowd’ ‘Open Your Heart’ & ‘The Things That Dreams Are Made Of’’ are a popular feature on any epic list of compilations. The band have also released nine studio albums, two remix albums, one live album, six EP’s, thirty singles and since 2001 they have consistently toured and headlined contemporary festivals across the world.
