Tears for Fears Announce Summer 2023 North American Tour
Tears for Fears have announced a summer 2023 North American tour in support of their 2022 album The Tipping Point.
The Tipping Point Tour Part II will begin on June 23 in Atlantic City, N.J., and conclude on Aug. 2 in Los Angeles. Cold War Kids will open the entire 22-date trek.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday. You can find more information at Ticketmaster and see the full list of tour dates below.
The Tipping Point marked Tears for Fears' first album since 2004's Everybody Loves a Happy Ending. Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith tried collaborating with numerous other songwriters — a process they likened to "speed dating" — before scrapping much of the material and starting fresh in 2020.
"Going through the process of finding out what it was we didn't want to do, we ended up finding out what we did want to do," Smith told UCR last year. "We got together in 2020 and started fresh. We kept half of the songs and worked them to a certain degree and wrote half of the album as new songs. [All of that] became The Tipping Point, which we're both incredibly happy with."
