Flaunt The Imperfection: China Crisis
Liverpool legends China Crisis delight in touring the UK performing their classic album Flaunt the Imperfection live in its entirety with their band alongside other hits and favourite tracks.
Flaunt the Imperfection was the third China Crisis album for Virgin Records, released to international critical acclaim, selling more than a million copies worldwide and including hit singles 'Black Man Ray' and 'King in a Catholic Style' amongst its 10 tracks. The album was the first work (but not last) produced for the band by musical icon Walter Becker (Steely Dan) who became both a friend and collaborator as well as guide and mentor, and whose recent passing makes these performances especially poignant for band and audience alike.
The founding duo behind China Crisis, Gary Daly and Eddie Lundon, will be joined on stage by a stellar band of musicians hand-selected by them for these momentous performances; they all look forward to making Flaunt the Imperfection Live a very special evening for those attending. Along with performing this classic work, the band will also perform their many other hits such as 'Wishful Thinking', 'Arizona Sky', 'Christian', 'Tragedy and Mystery', 'Working with Fire and Steel' and 'Hanna Hanna'.
Formed in 1979 in Kirkby on Merseyside, China Crisis are essentially vocalist/keyboardist Garry Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon.
With hits including 'Wishful Thinking', 'Black Man Ray' and 'King In A Catholic Style (Wake Up)', their distinctive AOR-fuelled pop songs were everywhere in the '80s, spending a total of 92 weeks in the charts. Who said the '80s were all bad? China Crisis, for instance, were largely considered one of the better musical things about that much-maligned decade.
The guys continue to tour and play festivals today.
