Retro Futura Tour, North America's premier 80's music tour is coming to the Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre!
The line up consists of Men Without Hats, Howard Jones, Katrina (of Katrina and the Waves), Modern English, Paul Young, The English Beat, and Annabella of Bow Wow Wow. Men Without Hats was formed in Montreal (Canada) in 1977 by Ivan Doroschuk (vocals), Pete Seabrooke (guitar), Dave Hill (bass) and John Gurin (drums). Their musical style can be best described as a blend of new wave (a genre of rock music that moved away from smooth blues and rock and roll sounds to create pop music that incorporated electronic and experimental music, mod, and disco) and synth pop (a subgenre of new wave music that rose to prominence in the late 1970s and features the synthesizer as the dominant musical instrument). The band’s been through many line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Ivan (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, synths, drum programming), Louise Dawson (keyboards), Rachel Ashmore (keyboards), and Sho Murray (guitar). They’ve had a stellar career with 7 studio albums, 2 extended plays, 5 compilation albums, 11 music videos, 1 video album, and 11 singles. They’re best known for their singles The Safety Dance and Pop Goes The Word, both of which have been certified Gold in Canada.
