Soft Cell have announced that they will reunite for one final show. Marc Almond and Dave Ball will perform at the O2 in London on 30 September, their first UK concert in 15 years.
Almond commented: “With Soft Cell I always felt something was unfinished. This last ever final show will be the best ever ending. It will be a real statement and sendoff, and thank you to every fan.”
How we made Soft Cell’s Tainted Love
The show is billed as Say Hello, Wave Goodbye in tribute to one of the band’s best known songs. It was the third single from the duo’s 1981 debut album, Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret, acknowledged as a touchstone of the British synth-pop scene that would define the 1980s.
