Heaven 17 Backs Out of Regeneration Tour
Written by admin on May 18, 2009
Due to some financial considerations, Heaven 17 will not be on this year’s Regeneration Tour, according event organizers. The band was to have been included in a lineup featuring Terri Nunn and Berlin, ABC, Cutting Crew and Wang Chung (with Missing Persons for some shows).
Red Entertainment, who operates and promotes the tour, says dates that include Berlin on the bill will likely be a four-band lineup while they seek replacements for shows without Nunn and her band.
It would have been nice to see Heaven 17 perform in the U.S. this year, but economic circumstances can not always be helped. Red Entertainment did an excellent job last year finding other bands to take on dates where the Human League did not appear, recruiting The Romantics, Missing Persons and 10,000 Maniacs as fill-ins. They should be trusted to come through for classic alternative fans again.
