Why See The The?
The The Returns To The Stage
After 18 years of radio silence, post punk icons The The are are coming out of hibernation to perform eight special American shows this coming Fall. The brainchild of British frontman and remaining member Matt Johnson, the alt pop outfit achieved cult status in the 80s with their new-wave synth soundscapes, hypnotic grooves and iconic, darkly poetic lyrics. Don't miss classics like Uncertain Smile, Heartland and Slow Emotion Replay on the 2018 Comeback Special reunion tour.
Embracing their reputation as outsiders, Matt Johnson oversaw the creation of unique, candid songs that defied genres and fashion trends of the decade of decadence, using his music as a platform to fight against the banalities of manufactured MTV pop and the social injustices of the Thatcherite era. Perhaps now more than ever, The The's triumphant return to the stage is poignant and necessary.
Performance date: 21 September 2018
