Soft Cell reunite for one final London show

The synth-pop pioneers are back

Synth-pop pioneers Soft Cell have announced a brief reunion, with a special ‘one night, one final time’ show in London.

The 80s band, comprised of singer Marc Almond and multi-instrumentalist Dave Ball, are perhaps best known for their take on ‘Tainted Love’ (below). They originally split in 1984, before a reunion between 2001 and 2005.

Now, the band have announced their first UK show in 15 years – which is set to be their last ever performance. “With Soft Cell I always felt something was unfinished,” said Marc Almond. “This last ever final show will be the best ever ending. It will be a real statement and send off, and thank you to every fan.”

Soft Cell will play the O2 Arena in London on September 30, 2018 – tickets are available here from Friday 26 February.

Dave Ball added “We live in very interesting times, and 2018 promises to be a very special year.”

Soft Cell released five studio albums, with the most recent being 2002 reunion record ‘Cruelty Without Beauty’. They had ten top 40 hits in the UK.
