Tears For Fears knows it’s more fun in the Philippines.
Remember this deafening reception at the Araneta Coliseum in May 2010?
I sure wouldn’t miss it.
Tears For Fears will embark on a late-summer tour of the Far East—hitting Japan, the Philippines and South Korea—but not before playing a small string of warm-up shows in Las Vegas, the San Francisco Bay Area, Costa Mesa, California and possibly San Diego, Curt Smith revealed on a recent music-industry podcast.
Appearing on the Music Biz Weekly Podcast last week, Smith said he and Roland Orzabal are planning a three-and-a-half-week summer tour.
“I guess when we get back together we’ll probably talk about whether we’re going to record anymore, but for now, we’re just doing a few West Coast dates to warm up and then we’re off to the Phillipines and Japan and South Korea.”
None of the concerts have been announced yet, but Smith says they’re looking at an August 1 show at the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, California, plus a Las Vegas date that’s “about to be confirmed.”
He said the band will play the Bay Area, and are trying to secure a venue in San Francisco, but could end up playing in San Jose. He adds: “We may do San Diego, but I think it’s only going to be three or four shows before we head off.”
