The English pop rock band Tears for Fears will play on Sunday, February 24, 2019, starting with 9.00 pm, at Kioene Arena, in Padua, as part of their Rule the World Tour 2019.
Tears for Fears was formed in Bath in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Initially associated with the new wave synthesiser bands of the early 1980s, Tears for Fears was later branched out into mainstream rock and pop, which led to international chart success. Over time, Tears for Fears have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
The band released its first album, The Hurting, in 1983, and the second album, Song from the Big Chair, in 1985. After the release of their third album in 1989, The Seeds of Love, the band broke up in 1991. In 2000, the band reunited and released a new album, Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, in 2004. Since 2013, the band is working on a new album.
On 10 November 2017, the band released a new 16-track compilation album entitled Rule The World – The Greatest Hits. The compilation includes 14 Top 40 hits from all six previous Tears For Fears albums, along with two new tracks.
