First is the Retro Futura package tour, which this year features ABC (who put out a surprisingly good sequel to their classic 1982 debut The Lexicon of Love a couple years back), former Go-Gos frontwoman Belinda Carlisle, Modern English, onetime Kajagogo frontman (and Neverending Story themesong singer) Limahl, Annabella of Bow Bow Bow, and Tony Lewis of The Outfield. So far the only date of the tour that’s been announced is a Nassau County’st NYCB Theatre at Westbury on July 13. Tickets are on presale now (use code ENCORE).
Meanwhile, Midge Ure (Ultravox), who played previous editions of Retro Futura, will play NYC’s Highline Ballroom on June 8 with Paul Young, and tickets are on sale now. Midge has a few other North American dates lined up, and lots in Europe. All are listed below."
