We have decided to mark the second annual Heaven 17 Jazz Cafe Party Gigs by getting the very talented and thoroughly lovely Poster designer Martin Bedford to design a poster for the event…
Martin has been designing posters for us since the Penthouse & Pavement Tour back in…. Whenever it was!
We know quite a few people have been collecting these brilliant pieces of art and realise that not everyone has been able to get tickets for the two now sold out Jazz Cafe gigs, so…
We have a few of these posters to pre-order …
We are not going to print many, maybe no more than a hundred so if anyone has a space waiting on the wall for the next Heaven 17 Poster Art, now is the time to act.
As soon as they are back from the printers we’ll send them out
One of the biggest highlights at this year’s Rewind South is the debut of the British Electric Foundation. B.E.F. is the brainchild of Heaven 17’s Martyn Ware, and will showcase a unique and dazzling performance featuring a raft of legendary pop artists.
Martyn has assembled a stellar line-up featuring the full Heaven 17 band performing songs made famous by the stars themselves, plus cover versions in the inimitable B.E.F. electronic pop style featuring Robin Scott (M), Thomas Dolby, Eddi Reader (Fairground Attraction), Peter Hook (New Order), Shingai Shoniwa (The Noisettes), and Heaven 17’s lead singer, Glenn Gregory.
This one-off 80’s themed electronic extravaganza promises to be a hit-packed highlight of the entire weekend. Don’t miss it!
Well, 2014 has been a joy and a success for Heaven 17, and it looks like 2015 is going to be our busiest year yet! Here is a list of our forthcoming concerts – all confirmed – with quite a few more to come…
We look forward to seeing you all and saying hello at many of these – we’re particularly looking forward to the Jazz Café dates as we’re planning several surprises (well, we have to keep it interesting for all of us, don’t we?)
Of course, Glenn and I are continuing to work on the new album, and we have a few other surprises in store on that front also…
And BEF will be resurrected in 2015 – watch this space for an exciting announcement in January
Finally – thanks to all our loyal fans – without your encouragement we wouldn’t be able to carry on with the energy and commitment we bring to Heaven 17 – we truly believe in your ‘love energy’ (in the words of the great Angie Brown!) – we are forever in your debt…
Here are next year’s confirmed dates – lots more to be confirmed in January…Merry Christmas from M&G and all at H17HQ xx
