Iconic New Wave band The Human League will visit the Bonus Arena, Hull on Monday, 6 December 2021 as part of their UK tour.
Celebrating 40 years since the release of DARE, The Human League will be performing this classic album in its entirety, as well as other hits from their extensive back catalogue, across arenas and theatres in the UK throughout December 2021
Originals of the British New Wave/Synth scene The Human League dominated the airwaves and charts throughout the 80’s with their dark yet stylish post punk electronica, which remains as fresh, current and highly influential today as it did with the release of DARE on the 16th October 1981.
On its release DARE instantly became a landmark album for the British music scene, spreading an exciting new sound to the US and Europe and helping give birth to a whole new era in music. The band are widely regarded as leaders of the second British Invasion of the US music market and, to this day, remain one of the most highly played bands on MTV worldwide.
DARE contained four hit singles, including the No 1 ‘Don’t You Want Me’ which is arguably the poppiest track on the album, staying in the charts for five weeks and making the 1981 Xmas No.1 slot. The album earnt them a Brit Award the following year and the band continued to grace the top 10 for the next fifteen years, with a resurgence of popularity and commercial success in every decade that has followed.
The band, who hail from Sheffield, have also released nine studio albums, two remix albums, one live album, six EP’s, 30 singles and since 2001 they have consistently toured and headlined contemporary festivals across the world.
The Human League’s ‘Dare 40 Tour’ also features on the bill Altered Images.
