Never miss another 'ABC' show
Up Close & Personal: ABC + Hazell Dean
"Fusing dance floor finesse with a post-punk attitude they released their first single, "Tears Are Not Enough", in the autumn of 1981. More hits followed in rapid succession like "Poison Arrow", "The Look of Love" and "All of My Heart". On its release in May 1982 their debut album "The Lexicon of Love" crashed straight into the album charts at number one.
With Worldwide hits and six studio albums later; ABC continue to tour extensively throughout the world, playing sell-out concerts from London's Royal Albert Hall to California's Hollywood Bowl and are excited about performing at these exclusive "Up Close & Personal" events.
Hazell Dean established a formidable reputation as "Queen of the British Clubs" scoring a succession of massive club and dance hits which crossed successfully into the mainstream charts during the 1980's. Hazell is a great addition to this bill for a night of amazing live music."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
ABC were one of those groups who come along once a decade to effect a paradigm shift in the way music is heard and made, one of those groups who move the music forward, alerting us to the possibilities of strange combinations, employing radical ideas yet never confusing arrogance with ambition. They kick-started the Eighties with their own brand of pop for the new decade.
Fusing dance floor finesse with a post-punk attitude they released their first single, ‘Tears Are Not Enough’, in the autumn of 1981. More hits followed in rapid succession. ‘Poison Arrow’, ‘The Look Of Love’ and ‘All Of My Heart’. On its release in May 1982 their debut album ‘The Lexicon of Love’ crashed straight into the album charts at number one. Although they continued to release more albums over the years, they eventually made an acclaimed sequel to their debut, releasing 'The Lexicon of Love II' in 2017.
ABC continue to tour extensively throughout the world, playing sell-out concerts from London‘s Royal Albert Hall to California’s Hollywood Bowl. Whether performing as a band, or performing with an Orchestra, Martin Fry remains the consummate show man.

Hazell established a formidable reputation as "Queen of the British Clubs" during the '80s, scoring a succession of massive club and dance hits which crossed successfully into the mainstream charts. She's probably best known for the huge hit 'Searchin' (I Gotta Find A Man)', which sailed in to the UK Top 40 singles chart at number 6 and remained in the top 75 for 15 weeks in 1984.
