Human League Double Pass. Performing at Auckland’s Logan Campbell Centre Wednesday 6 December at 8pm w/ Pseudo Echo (R.18/All Ages)
Forty years after forming, UK synth-pop pioneers The Human League are coming to our shores for their first ever New Zealand show and we have a double pass for you to join in the fun!
The much-loved trio of Phil Oakey, Susan Ann Sulley & Joanne Catherall will be joined by special guests, Australian New Wave sensations Pseudo Echo for a special night of the hits.
Formed in the English city of Sheffield in 1977, The Human League were early pioneers of the British synth-pop movement, earning street cred within the art-pop scene of the late 70s. They signed to Virgin Records in 1979, the same year David Bowie described them as “the sound of the future,” and he was bang on.
The group continued to innovate and expand with Sulley and Catherall joining the band at the end of 1980.
Throughout the 80s, The Human League were a permanent fixture on the New Zealand album & single charts. They held six New Zealand Top 20 singles with wellknown hits including (Keep Feeling) Fascination, Human and Love Action. Their 1981 breakthrough album Dare was a #1 hit on the NZ album chart, and remained there for 40 consecutive weeks, helping them become firm nightclub favourites during a time of exciting musical change. It contained four hit singles, including the massively popular Don’t You Want Me.
Their songs are still sampled and played across dance floors worldwide and their live reputation grows with each passing year.
Their perfect pairing with Pseudo Echo with such great songs as Living In A Dream, A Beat For You, Send Me An Angel and Funky Town augers well for a night that will have you in synth-pop paradise. Tickets from Ticketmaster.
