Tom Bailey

The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey took to the stage in a small club in the U.K. last week for an hour-long set that featured his first performance of his old band’s material in 27 years, a warm-up for his appearance at the Rewind South festival over this past weekend and his upcoming North American tour with Howard Jones and Midge Ure.

Below, you can watch Bailey’s nine-song set — during which he played “Hold Me Now,” “King for a Day,” “In the Name of Love” and more — in its entirety via Ian Priestley.

Bailey is co-headlining the Retro Futura 2014 tour — the rebranded Regeneration Tour — with Jones. In addition to Ure, other acts appearing include China Crisis and Katrina of Katrina & The Waves.
