No, not Guns n Roses news (Although…). This is about one of the eighties best loved bands, China Crisis returning for a rare and intimate tour in October, to celebrate 25 years since their debut release ‘African & White‘.
The new show will include many previously unheard songs as well as every classic China Crisis tune. There are also plans to get some very exciting special guests involved.
Formed in Liverpool in 1979, core duo Gary Daly and Eddie Lundon rose to fame with intelligent, melodic slices of post-punk pop such as the classic hits ‘Black Man Ray’, ‘King In A Catholic Style (Wake Up)’ and ‘Wishful Thinking’. 2007 sees them release a brand new dvd filmed in their hometown at Paul McCartney’s world famous LIPA Auditorium.
