Bow Wow Wow to reunite for UK tour



Bow Wow Wow/publicity photoThe reunion craze -- thankfully! -- isn't over. Count Bow Wow Wow as the latest act to jump through the hurdles and reform for a tour of the UK during this lovely '80s renaissance.

Lead vocalist Annabella Lwin and bassist Lee Gorman, who both now live in Los Angeles, are headed back to England for a 12-show tour this spring, beginning April 19 in Southampton, says the UK's Guardian. "They will be performing without the help of original drummer Dave Barbe or guitarist Matthew Ashman, who died in 1995. The group's last British appearance was a one-off set in November 2010, when Lwin, Gorman and Barbe appeared at a tribute to Ashman in London," the paper reports.

Bow Wow Wow shows aren't entirely scarce these days. Lwin and Gorman played together a small Huntington Beach, Calif., show last month. But as the Guardian points out, this is the first "proper" British tour in 30 years.

Here are the dates: 

19 Southampton The Brook
20 Oxford Academy
21 Birmingham Academy
23 Wolverhampton Robin 2
24 Leeds Brudnell Social Club
25 York Fibbers
26 Glasgow ABC2
