Sad Café

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Regarded by many as one of the best live bands of the 70s and 80s, Sad Café are back celebrating the 43th anniversary of the massively successful “Every Day Hurts” which was one of the top ten selling singles of 1979, staying in the charts for a massive twelve weeks. After a very successful career, the band went their separate ways in 1985 and singer Paul Young, who went on to join Mike and the Mechanics, tragically and unexpectedly died in 2000. However, in 2013, the band were persuaded to reform and with some new members, returned to the live circuit to wide acclaim. Since then, they have toured up and down the UK reuniting a devoted fan base and making many new fans in the process. 

A limited number of Sound Check and Meet and Greet Packages are available giving access to the end of the soundcheck, premium seats and photos with the band - £60. (please arrive 5.45pm prompt for this)
