The Human League
Date / Time
After much feedback for a more intimate and partially seated venue closer to the CBD, the promoters have listened to the public and are moving the Brisbane concert of The Human League to The Tivoli Theatre (Fortitude Valley). The date will remain the same for the show – Sunday 17th December, with Pseudo Echo and Wa Wa Nee still as the support acts. All tickets previously purchased for Eatons Hill will automatically transfer over to The Tivoli Theatre.
David Bowie famously said of The Human League ‘’I have seen the future of Pop Music” and he wasn’t wrong. Decades later, they are still in high demand and touring. The Human League have become pop icons in their own lifetime, with a career in which they have earned a reputation for fantastic live shows, sold millions of albums, and inspired two generations worth of recording artists. They have had No. 1 singles across Australia, Europe, the US, and undeniably given us some of the most memorable pop songs ever. Fans adored their unique mix of sound & image - from their beginnings as an artsy, avant-garde electronic band, to their chart-topping new wave hits of the 80s.
The Human League’s landmark album, Dare, which was released in 1981, saw them blowup worldwide. It spawned the smash single, Don't You Want Me and followed on with favorites such as Love Action (I Believe In Love) and Open Your Heart. Dare was so successful that it went on to be included in Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 80’s. In turn, the pop group constantly pushed forward, staying together and playing together. The story of The Human League encompasses three very distinct line-ups, all of which have their merits, but one thing unites them: The Human League are not just a pop group – they are possibly the last great pop group. Believe.
