First Tech Federal Credit Union Music in the Park presents two icons of the ’80s modern rock movement. Take a dive into deep early ’80s synth pop as two of the era’s signature bands share the bill.
While Flock of Seagulls no longer qualifies as a hair band, their music has stood the test of time and their timeless classics “I Ran (So Far Away)’ and "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" helped define an era. If you never got a chance to see them back in the day, here’s your chance, and the band is strong as ever.
This extraordinary Music in the Park double date (think of it as two headliners for the price of one) also includes Martin Fry’s ABC, the English pop band that broke out in 1982 with ”The Lexicon of Love“ and a distinctive David Bowie/Roxy Music-influenced sound that we celebrate 40 years later on this rare U.S. tour. Critics call the album “a benchmark of 80s pop, and a formidable collection of melodramatic love songs.” In other words, a romantic crooner in classic elegant style will hit the stage, so feel free to bring a date—or not.
