Dave Stewart, the award-winning singer, songwriter, musician, producer, innovator and Eurythmics co-founder, is set to captivate audiences across Europe once again as he announces Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary Tour – with the tour coming to his home town of Sunderland.
Featuring Dave alongside an all-female band of virtuoso singers and musicians, the tour promises to take fans on a nostalgic and electrifying musical journey spanning four decades of the iconic musical partnership’s groundbreaking hits.
Celebrating a remarkable 40 years since the release of the timeless Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This), Eurythmics, known for their unique blend of synth-pop, new wave, soul, and rock, have sold over 75 million albums worldwide since their 1980’s debut and have become enduring icons of popular music.
Dave Stewart said:
“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 (Annie’s goddaughter) Kaya Stewart who was singing “There Must Be An Angel” on Annie’s knee since she was 5 years old and since 14 has performed hundreds 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.
The tour is set to be a fitting testament to the enduring impact of Eurythmics’ music and the duo’s lasting influence on the global music landscape.
“Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary Tour” promises an unforgettable experience, featuring state of the art production and visuals, and a myriad of mega-hits including: “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” “Here Comes The Rain Again,” “Love Is A Stranger”, “Would I Lie To You”, “Missionary Man” and “There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart).”
The full band line up is as follows: Dave Stewart on guitars, Vanessa Amorosi, RAHH and Kaya Stewart on vocals, Hannah Koppenburg on keyboards, Indiara Sfair on harmonica & backing vocals, Julia Lamb on bass guitars & backing vocals and Ellie East on drums.
Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary Tour hits the UK in November, when fans can see Dave and the band performing in his hometown of Sunderland on Friday 10 November 2023.
