Reproduction and Travelogue
Following a sold out headline tour in 2018, Heaven 17 have announced two very special shows performing The Human League’s debut albums Reproduction and Travelogue albums for the very first time.
The Sheffield trio Heaven 17 started by one of The Human League’s founding members Martyn Ware, are one of the most important British post-punk bands.
The Human League’s Reproduction and Travelogue co-written by Ware in 1979 and 1980 have never been performed live in full. Ware and co recorded the album on the brink of the industrial synth/electronic era and went on to influence generations of musicians. Critically acclaimed both albums spawned singles ‘Empire State Human’ and ‘Being Boiled’.
Martyn Ware said: “As one of the originators of The Human League, I have always had a passion to make this very exciting project happen. We will recreate the feeling and authenticity of the original experience, featuring all the original instruments, arrangements and set design - reimagining the totally original visual performance. These two concerts may well never be repeated - I strongly recommend you do not miss them.”
Heaven 17 will be covering The Human League’s debut albums alongside some of their own classic tracks.
The brainchild of Martyn Ware and born from the collapse of the original Human League, 80's synth pioneers Heaven 17 have stood the test of time and been an influence on the future of modern music for over thirty years. Their debut 1981 album, 'Penthouse And Pavement', was, and remains, a modern classic. Glenn Gregory and Martyn continue to perform the hits from their overwhelming back catalogue, including 'Temptation' and '(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang', along with unveiling their newer material.
