Following an incredible twelve months including a critically acclaimed new album and nationwide sell out shows, ABC have announced a brand new UK tour for November performing all their greatest hits. This new full band show will also see them being joined by none 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 80s 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 went to number one and sold over a million records. To date ABC have released eight studio albums; The Lexicon Of Love, Beauty Stab, How To Be A Zillionaire, Alphabet City, Up, Abracadabra, Skyscraping and Traffic. 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 five.

Joining the tour as special guests Kid Creole And The Coconuts who for over thirty five years has been entertaining music lovers around the world. Kid Creole And The Coconuts was 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; he travels with ten musicians who all share his love of the ultimate musical tapestry. Their live shows have become the stuff of legend. Annie I’m not your Daddy, Stool Pigeon, I’m a Wonderful thing, Baby, Endicott, My Male Curiosity and many more memorable tunes are guaranteed to make you shake your body.
