Au-Rene Theater. August 31st, 2010.
AEG Live and the Broward Center present one of the most successful bands in 1980’s Rock. Tears For Fears. In February of 1985, Tears For Fears released “Songs From the Big Chair” to became a huge hit in America, rocketing them to the top of the charts on the strength of the singles “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” and “Shout,” both hitting number one, and the number three single “Head Over Heels,” which were all supported by clever, stylish videos that received heavy MTV airplay. This disc entered the UK album chart at number two and remained in its upper reaches for the next 12 months. They did away with the predominantly synth-pop feel of their first album, instead expanding into a more sophisticated sound that would become the band’s stylistic hallmark. The new Tears for Fears sound helped to propel Songs from the “Big Chair” into becoming one of the year’s biggest global sellers, eventually being certified triple-platinum in the UK and quintuple-platinum in the U.S.
