This show was Tears for Fear’s second appearance at the Hall, having made their debut in 1985 celebrating Songs from the Big Chair, the band’s second studio album.

In front of a sold-out crowd, Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith performed their first full-length UK concert since 2005 – a set of best-loved hits from five albums, including Mad World, Change, Pale Shelter, Shout, Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Sowing The Seeds of Love and Everybody Loves A Happy Ending.
