Following an incredible 12 months including a critically acclaimed new album and nationwide sell out shows, ABC’s new UK tour will see them joined by non-other than Kid Creole and The Coconuts.

Of the new tour Martin Fry said:

“Here’s an opportunity to open up the ABC songbook and journey through all the hits. Lexicon to Lexicon. ABC to XYZ. See you there. “

ABC were formed in Sheffield in the 1980’s when they decided they wanted to fuse the world of disco funk with their own unique post punk vision. ABC’s debut album The Lexicon Of Love (‘82) went to No 1 and sold over a million records. To date ABC have released 8 studio albums: The Lexicon Of Love (‘82), Beauty Stab (‘83), How To Be A Zillionaire (‘85), Alphabet City (‘87), Up (‘89), Abracadabra (‘91), Skyscraping (‘97) and Traffic (‘08). A mere 34 years since the release of their landmark debut album ABC returned with their resounding triumph The Lexicon Of Love II which immediately entered into the top 5.

Kid Creole And The Coconuts were born out of the burning embers of the brilliant and trailblazing Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. Born in the Bronx (New York), August Darnell (the Kid) is a man of multiple cultures, inclinations and personalities. His love of the big band tradition is evident. Their live shows have become the stuff of legend. Annie I’m not your Daddy, Stool Pigeon, I’m a Wonderful thing, Baby and many more memorable tunes are guaranteed to make you shake your body. On joining the tour Kid Creole said:

“When I listen to the music of ABC, I am reminded of good times and delicious poison arrows. It is an honor to share the stage with Martin Fry. Music lovers, get ready for a funky good time! Hachachacha!”
