Dave Stewart announces Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary UK and European tour
By Classic Pop | September 6, 2023
Dave Stewart has announced a major new tour, coming this November.
Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary Tour features the former Eurythmic alongside an all-female band of singers and musicians, and promises to take fans on a nostalgic musical journey spanning four decades of the duo’s hits.
Celebrating 40 years since the release of the classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This), Eurythmics have sold over 75 million albums worldwide since their 1980s heyday.
Following a highly acclaimed one-off Eurythmics Songbook show at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 2019 and with the blessing of musical partner Annie Lennox, who no longer tours, Stewart has decided to take the show on the road.
Stewart said of the tour: “I love playing live shows and am so excited to be onstage with this amazing lineup of musicians and singers most of whom I have performed with on many occasions. My great friend Vanessa Amorosi an Australian legend known for her powerful vocal prowess, RAHH a brilliant artist/singer from Warrington with whom I’ve recorded and performed with for nearly 10 years and my daughter (Lennox’s goddaughter) Kaya Stewart who was singing There Must Be An Angel on Annie’s knee since she was five years old and since 14 years old has performed hundred of solo shows wowing crowds with her very soulful and emotional voice.
“Choosing a band that are all outstanding female musicians led by the brilliant keyboardist Hannah Koppenburg is my way of paying homage to my great friend and collaborator Annie Lennox.”
Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary Tour hits the UK in November, when fans can see Dave and the band performing in his home town of Sunderland and in London, as part of Europe wide tour.
