Tears For Fears Postpone Last Four Dates of U.S. Tour

by VVN Music

Tears For Fears have been forced to postpone the last four dates of their current U.S. tour due to a "family emergency".

Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith had been on the road with Daryl Hall and John Oates since the beginning of May.  They had three dates with the duo left along with one headlining show.

The band said:

Tears for Fears regretfully announce the postponement of their last four US tour dates, due to a family emergency. All dates will be rescheduled with details to follow shortly. Please see below dates and venues:

Tuesday, July 25 - SAP Center, San Jose, CA (with Daryl Hall & John Oates)
Wednesday, July 26 - Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara, CA (headline)
Friday, July 28/Saturday, July 29 - STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA (with Daryl Hall & John Oates)

Orzabal and Smith formed Tears For Fears in 1981 and had their first major British hit the next year with Mad World (1982 / #3 U.K.). Overall, they had seven top ten hits in the U.K. and four in the U.S. with Shout (1984 / #1 U.S. / #4 U.K.), Everybody Wants to Rule the World (1985 / #1 U.S. / #2 U.K.), Head Over Heels (1985 / #3 U.S. / #12 U.K.) and Sowing the Seeds of Love (1989 / #2 U.S. / #5 U.K.).
