The band will also be returning to Germany on June 5th to perform at the Leipzig City Music Festival.
Tickets are free.


Kajagoogoo’s original five members - Limahl (Lead Vocals), Nick Beggs (Bass/Vocals), Steve Askew (Guitar/Vocals), Jez Strode (Drums) and Stuart Croxford Neale (Keyboards/Vocals) have reunited to tour the UK for the first time in 25 years. This intimate tour starts at Liverpool’s O2 Academy on 17th September and culminates at Southampton’s The Brook on 1st October.

The band, discovered by Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes, had a bitter split into two factions just eight months after their debut single ‘Too Shy’ topped the UK charts in February 1983. The band has now reconciled and have since rediscovered the magic that brought them together in the first place.

Kajagoogoo’s success was instant - the pop-perfect ‘Too Shy’ became a number one in 23 countries (and Top 5 in America) the ‘Ooh To be Aah’ follow-up went top ten, ‘Hang On Now’ Top 20 and the debut album White Feathers Top 5 and went on to sell 3 million albums. After the split, the four remaining members regrouped with Nick on vocals and their next single ‘Big Apple’ reached a respectable number eight. But Limahl’s focal presence couldn’t help but be missing.

Monday 7th April - London. Kajagoogoo sign their band agreements, bringing them back together officially after 25 years.
Nick says: This was a snap taken on the night we signed all the paper work.
Limahl is showing the newly signed agreement.
Strangely, the solicitors office was right next door to Blackwing Studios, at All Hallows Church.
This is were Art Nouveau recorded their first demos and the single fear machine.
As you can see, the original signage is still present.
This was a commission by Eric Radcliff to Steve Askew back in 1980.
Steve used to be a sign writer and when Eric found this out he said, "Oh I need some signs for this place.".
The signs are all still there, 28 years later, even though the building is unused now.
(Eric Radcliff engineered and produced Art Nouveau and went onto produce Depeche Mode, Erasure and Yazoo at the same studio.
Hence the Yazoo album title "Upstairs at Eric's."
