Alphaville, the beloved synthpop band responsible for such hits as “Forever Young” “Sounds Like A Melody” and “Big In Japan” are set to embark on their first U.S. tour this summer.
Formed in Germany in 1982, Alphaville’s catchy new wave resonated with global audiences, but curiously they never played shows in the United States.
The band, which features original singer Marian Gold, along with David P. Goodes (guitars), Carsten Brocker (keys), Jakob Kiersch (drums) and Alexandra Merl (bass), will tour the U.S. Aug 4-12. The five-date tour starts in Houston and makes stops in New York, Chicago, San Jose and Los Angeles.
The band’s latest album Strange Attractor came out in April and yielded the hit “Heartbreak City.”
