(UK) Having just completed a 36 date sold out UK & European tour ‘Sirens’ in October and November of 2014 Level 42 have today announced that they will play again in London on Friday 4th September in London at indigo at The O2. Level 42 could be forgiven for wanting to take things a little easier after 34 years in the saddle. “No way!” says bassist and front man Mark King; “Touring the ‘Sirens’ EP has been about as much fun as I can remember having had on the road, and with the addition of the brass section I think the band has developed not only musically, but also in the way we present ourselves to our fans. Re-invention can be a wonderful thing!”
To date the band and Mark have released 14 studio albums, 7 live albums, the Sirens’ EP, and 6 compilation albums, had 18 top 40 singles, including Lessons in Love, Something About You, Leaving Me Now, Running in the Family, and Hot Water, sold out Wembley Arena for a total of 21 nights and sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide.
In short they have proven to be one of the most successful British bands of the 1980’s, and with the recent re-issues of the bands vast catalogue on Universal Music, and inclusion on BBC Radio 2’s Sounds of the Eighties compilation album currently in the charts, it is clear they continue to be a benchmark for British Jazz Funk at the highest level.
2015 will see Level 42 kicking off the year with a tour of Japan, then into the festival season across the UK and Europe culminating in London for this one-off show.
