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
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.
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. This show garnered some rave reviews:
dreams of synthpop heaven.”
-The Sunday Times
night of musical joy.”
-The Weekender, London
passion in this house...ticker tape was flying in celebration of fandom,
friendship and fabulous song craft.”
The duo, who still come together for one off performances, such
as for their induction last year into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame, are delighted to be celebrating this landmark anniversary of Sweet Dreams
and Stewart is relishing the chance to play a
carefully curated selection of timeless hits from their extraordinary catalogue
of songs, live on tour for the first time in over 20 years.
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
