Men Without Hats First European Tour In 20 Years

Posted on 30 January 2013 by Joe

Canadian synth pop legends Men Without Hats will be performing in the UK for the first time this week (Feb 1)  to promote their latest album Love In The Age of War.

The UK date at London’s Islington O2 Academy will mark the start of a European tour that also takes in dates in Germany, Austria, Denmark and Sweden. Full details can be found here.  We’ll be at their London show with a review to follow next week.

This latest tour  for the band,  which is fronted by Ivan Doroschuk,  follows a US tour last year with The B-52s and The Human League.

While 1983’s single The Safety Dance is their biggest and most well known single it is their 1984 album Folk of the 80s (Part III) that has most impressed us during their career. Here’s a clip of the title track, one of our favourites from that album.
