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.
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.
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 today’s artists.
The Human League will be joined by special guests Altered Images
