Whoa, whoa, whoa!  Hey According2g.com readers!  I know it’s been a minute since we’ve seen each other.  I’ve been exploring other projects and I’ll be sharing the details of my latest book (or how I spent my summer break) very soon, so please stay tuned.  But let’s get back to the matter at hand which was the Retro Futura Tour, which made a stop in New York on August 21, 2014 at the Best Buy Theater.  We were treated to sets by 1980s music titans Katrina and the Waves, China Crisis and Midge Ure before Howard Jones (and Tom Bailey of Thompson Twins – more on Tom coming soon) took the stage.  Decked out in a fabulous orange suit, Howard played a bunch of his hits including “Everlasting Love,” “What Is Love?” “Like To Get To Know You Well,” “The Prisoner,” “New Song,” “Things Can Only Get Better” (and after he played the version we all know and love from the 80s, he played a dance version of it, which was thumpin!) as well as the video you are about to see “No One Is To Blame.” The set showed that Howard has so many other great songs that there was not time to play (read: come back soon Howard!) including “Look Mama,” “Life in One Day,” “You Know I Love You… Don’t You” and more recent songs such as “Tomorrow Is Now” and  “Let The People Have Their Say.”  If you get the chance to see the Retro Futura Tour, I recommend it as you’ll have many flashbacks to our beloved 80s and you’ll see how great these bands and their music have aged.

And now, the mega-hit “No One Is To Blame.”

Enjoy, dear readers!  I know I did!

Whoa, whoa, whoa-oh-oh!  It’s one thing to meet one of your favorite singers in an evening, but meeting two of them at once is too cool!  Howard Jones and Andy Bell (of Erasure) are currently on tour, which in and of itself is epic!  The set-lists for both Howard and Andy are packed with their best loved songs (and Andy Bell even covers “Christine” by Siouxsie!) so you will definitely not want to miss this tour when it comes to your city.  Afterwards, I was fortunate enough to meet both Howard Jones and Andy Bell!  Andy Bell is a total sweetheart and Howard’s attitude towards fans, well let’s just say things can only get better, but no one is to blame… Thanks so much guys!  I’ve been fans for over 30 years and will always love you both!

Happy birthday to singer Howard Jones who celebrates his date of birth today, February 23.  I think I’ll be celebrating his birthday by listening to “Life in One Day,” “Look Mama,” “New Song,” and “What Is Love?”  Though most Americans only remember “Things Can Only Get Better,” Howard Jones has recorded so many great albums including the very over-looked record “People.”  Good stuff! Happy birthday Howard!
