Just wondering if anyone has heard of this and would be interested...

ABC will be taking “The Lexicon of Love” out on the road with a full
Orchestra for three dates in March 2014

ABC will perform the album in its entirety and will be accompanied
by Southbank Sinfonia and conducted by critically acclaimed musician
and composer, Anne Dudley.

ABC will be playing all their greatest hits before performing
'The Lexicon of Love’ in its entirety at the following venues:

Fri 28 Mar 14 Birmingham Symphony Hall
Sat 29 Mar 14 Salford The Lowry
Sun 30 Mar 14 London Theatre Royal Drury Lane

TICKETS ON SALE: Fri 22nd November

Yeah ticket booked. If you thought the THL tour is dear, this will make you sit up and realise what good value the League are!

For all of those including myself how many of you have seen or own a VHS or DVD copy of the ABC approx 54 min movie 'Mantrap'? Next best thing to seeing them live with lots of great songs from the classic album plus an intriguing spy thriller plot set against good locations. I love this slice of early 80s ABC promotion but cannot understand why the band themselves haven't done more to acknowledge or explore the possibility of a new DVD retail release. I'm sure there would be plenty of eager fans who'd welcome a newly remastered version with 5.1 Surround Sound and possibility a commentary track from Martin Fry.

It's all rather (embarrassingly?) silly, but the performance segments are brilliant. And so are the threads. :)
