ABC – The Lexicon of Love

About

Due to exceptional demand, ABC have announced further dates to their UK tour in January and February 2024, which will see them perform the timeless debut album 'The Lexicon of Love' in its entirety.

Martin Fry's timeless 'The Lexicon Of Love' went straight to number one upon release. Fusing dance floor finesse with a post-punk attitude, the album spawned timeless tracks such 'Poison Arrow', 'The Look Of Love', 'Tears Are Not Enough', and 'All Of My Heart'. The album saw ABC enchant the world with their own unique brand of pop and it remains a much-loved album.

The Lexicon Of Love Orchestra tour first came to fruition in 2009 with countless 5 star reviews from a one off show At The Royal Albert Hall - that saw Martin donning his iconic gold lame suit. It saw Martin joined by the Southbank Sinfonia and longtime collaborator Anne Dudley as conductor for a truly magical evening celebrating this pop masterpiece.

ABC formed in Sheffield in the 1980s with the aim of fusing the world of disco funk with their own unique post punk vision. ABC's debut album 'The Lexicon Of Love' ('82) went to No 1 and sold over a million records. To date ABC have released 9 studio albums: 'The Lexicon Of Love' ('82), 'Beauty Stab' ('83), 'How To Be A Zillionaire' ('85), 'Alphabet City' ('87), 'Up' ('89), 'Abracadabra' ('91), 'Skyscraping' ('97) and 'Traffic' ('08). A mere 36 years since the release of their landmark debut album, ABC returned with their resounding triumph "The Lexicon Of Love II' which immediately entered into the top 5.

Worldwide hits and six studio albums later, ABC demonstrate that even now - over 40 years on from 'The Lexicon Of Love' - Martin Fry's song-writing and musicianship is still as contemporary as it was in the beginning.
