The lineup for Regeneration Tour 2013 is now set. Organizers Red Entertainment announced today the artists who will perform during the August concert series.
This year's tour will feature four acts:
Information Society, whose hits include "Walking Away" and "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)," the latter of which sampled Leonard Nimoy for an interesting hook.
Erasure's Andy Bell, one-half of the noted synth-pop duo who who crowded the world's dance floors with "Oh, L'amour," "Chains of Love" and "A Little Respect," In recent years, Bell has released several solo tracks, including some under the name "Mimo."
The Human League, which has seen a major resurgence since playing Regeneration Tour 2008. They continue to perform to capacity crowds as they have done very well on the road since their RT2008 appearance.
Howard Jones, who recently made available a box set of his first two albums, Human's Lib and Dream Into Action, last year performed a series of concerts where he performed both of those creations in order and exactly as there were recorded in the 80s. Jones discusses that in an appearance on Revenge of the 80s Radio.
Red Entertainment says Regeneration Tour 2013 will run in August; the official schedule will be unveiled at a later date. At the time of this post, only two shows have been confirmed: August 7 at the Chastain Park Amphitheater in Atlanta and August 30 at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles.
U.S.-based Regeneration Tours were held in 2008 and 2009. Past participants included A Flock of Seagulls, Naked Eyes, ABC, Berlin and Wang Chung.
