Mike Peters presents The Alarm
Hurricane Of Change Tour
Thu 24 October
The Alarm lead singer and songwriter Mike Peters, will present The Alarm - Hurricane of Change 30th Anniversary Acoustic Tour at Swindon Arts centre this October.
The tour will honour The Alarm’s late 1980’s trilogy of iconic album’s Eye Of The Hurricane, Electric Folklore and Change, and will feature intimate acoustic readings of some of The Alarm’s most famous songs such as Rain In The Summertime (1987 - International Top 20 Hit), Sold Me Down The River (1989 - Number 1 Rock Song in the USA) and A New South Wales (1990 UK Top 40), alongside a host of Alarm standards as captured on the 1988 live album Electric Folklore.
The Hurricane of Change tour will be performed solo with a first set dedicated to Eye Of The Hurricane followed by a second performance of Change along with a third set featuring songs from The Alarm’s classic live recording Electric Folklore.
“I have always seen these three albums as an Alarm trilogy”, says Mike Peters. “A lot happened to the band and the world, during the writing and recording sessions from 1987-1990. As one decade bled into another, the themes of response and resolve to contend with uncertain times are running through the core of each and every album. Played together these songs tell their own story and with the tumultuous times Europe can expect to face in the coming months and years, are still as relevant today as when they were first written.”
