Turns out the slimmed-down Regeneration Tour won’t be a West Coast-only trek after all: The organizers of the ’80s synthpop package tour have announced a pair of dates in New York this August, two concerts that will feature Erasure frontman Andy Bell and will feature Howard Jones.
Still struggling from the loss of planned headliner The Human League, the promoters of this summer’s Regeneration Tour today announced they’ve been forced to scale back to a West Coast-only trek, unveiling new shows and lineups in Portland, Ore., Sacramento and Mexico City while also canceling a date in Atlanta.
Despite fans’ concerns that the entire trek had been scrubbed, it appears the Regeneration Tour is still on this summer, with Talking Heads spinoff Tom Tom Club and New Wave stars A Flock of Seagulls filling in at certain dates for The Human League, which quit the tour late month.
Just days after The Human League pulled out of this summer’s planned Regeneration Tour saying the group had been “promised one thing and delivered something so completely different,” another act on the bill, Erasure frontman Andy Bell, is warning fans that he might not be joining the tour, either.
The Regeneration Tour, which bills itself as “North America’s premier ’80s tour,” has lost another high-profile act, as The Human League this week pulled out of the summer trek, announcing “we were promised one thing and delivered something so completely different we just could not make it work, much as we wanted to.”
Billing itself as “North America’s premier ’80s tour,” the semi-annual Regeneration Tour returns this August for an undisclosed number of U.S. concerts featuring Erasure frontman Andy Bell, The Human League, Howard Jones and Information Society — but not, as tour promoters originally had hoped, the reunited Ultravox.
