Tears for Fears - POSTPONED

Sold Out

We regret to inform you that the Tears for Fears concert scheduled for June 6, 2016 at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park has been postponed. A new date has not been determined at this time.

Here is the official statement from Tears for Fears:
Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith regrettably announce today May 19 that they have to postpone their summer run of dates in the US to include theatres and festivals, due to family illness.
The band says in a joint statement:  “It’s with great disappointment that we have to postpone our US summer dates due to unforeseen and unhappy circumstances.  We thank our fans for their understanding and hope to get back on the road soon.”    

We are deeply sorry for this unforeseen development and send our best wishes for a quick and positive resolution to the family illness that members of the group are dealing with. Please note that although Tears for Fears has stated the tour is postponed, a new date for the concert has not been established. Every effort will be made to reschedule the concert.
If you purchased tickets to this concert, you have two options:
First, you may obtain a full refund by calling Star Tickets at 1-800-585-3737 or by emailing customerservice@startickets.com including your order number, first and last name to receive a refund.
Second, you may hold on to your ticket and if the show is rescheduled for a new date, your ticket will still be honored. If the concert is unable to be rescheduled, a full refund will be issued at a later date.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding.

Founded after the dissolution of their first band, they were initially associated with the new wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock and pop, which led to international chart success.
