English synthpop duo Soft Cell will reunite in 2018, for a one-off concert in London.
Marc Almond and David Ball will celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary with ‘One Night, One Final Time: Say Hello, Wave Goodbye’ a show at London’s O2 on 30 September this year. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 23 Feb.
Making the announcement on Chris Evan’s BBC Radio 2 breakfast show (does anyone make announcements anywhere else these days?) Almond also revealed that Universal Music will issue a Soft Cell box set this year. No real details on that at this stage other than the fact that it will definitely contain a couple of new studio tracks (I’ve heard rumours of a 9CD+DVD package).
It has been a busy few years for Marc Almond. In 2016 he issued a ten-CD box set Trials of Eyeliner and last year he issued Hits and Pieces a greatest hits that was available as 2CD deluxe edition.
