Go West celebrate their 30th anniversary with a joint headline tour with Nik Kershaw from October 2015 and the 31-date run includes support by T’Pau. Kershaw and Go West will team up on stage for new interpretations of their hits, with “special surprises” also promised.

 

Go West guitarist Richard Drummie said: “We’ve been fans of Nik since day one. I can still remember vividly one sunny summer’s day at my brother’s flat above a wine bar in Richmond playing Know How on his new stereo. It blew me away! Our paths have crossed many times and we’ve always had such a laugh, so we thought it would be fun to get up on stage and squeeze out a few sparks. It’s a monster bonus having Carol on the tour. She’s an old friend and we’ve played with her many times. She always sets the place alight.”

 

Kershaw added: “I’m thrilled and excited to be joining my old mates. I’ve been a big fan of Go West ever since first hearing that awesome opening lick of We Close Our Eyes in the back of a cab on my way to Heathrow. I was off on a world tour and their album ended up being the soundtrack to it.Thirty years on, I relish this opportunity and can’t wait to join them on stage to mash up some tunes together. Getting to hear Carol’s amazing voice every night will be the icing on the cake.”

 

T’Pau singer Carol Decker commented: “I have known Nik, Pete and Richard since our big old bad old days in the 80’s. I’ve loved their respective hits .It was a privilege to be Nik’s opening act back in 1987, a great start to my career. This will be a powerhouse tour of some of the best artists of one of the most creative musical decades.”
