Eighties Icon Band Tears for Fears to play at The Colosseum

Book A Room

For immediate release: April 6, 2016

Windsor, ON – Fans of the 80s iconic duo, Tears for Fears, will have their chance see them LIVE at Caesars Windsor on Sunday July 17 at 8:00pm.

These New Wave veterans, also known as Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, are recognised for such hits as “Mad World”, “Head Over Heels”, “Everyone Wants to Rule the World”, and “Sowing the Seeds of Love”. Formed in 1981, Tears For Fears were one of the most commercially successful British bands of the 1980’s, selling millions of albums and headlining arenas with their dark hued synth-pop. 

Their album Songs from the Big Chair became a huge hit in the U.S., rocketing to the top of the charts with “Everyone Wants to Rule the World” and “Shout”, which both hit #1 and were supported by clever, stylish videos on MTV.  The band's last studio album, Everybody Loves A Happy Ending, was released in 2004, and in 2013 they released a cover of Arcades Fire's 'Ready to Start' on Soundcloud.
