Howard Jones announces Human's Lib/Dream Into Action tour




If you live over in Britain, aren't you lucky: Howard Jones has announced a UK tour set to begin in April 2012 during which he will perform his first two studio albums -- Human's Lib and Dream Into Action -- back to back, live in their entirety.

Human's Lib was released on March 17, 1984, and spent 57 weeks in the UK's top 40. It included the hits What Is Love?, New Song, Pearl In The Shell and Hide & Seek. Dream Into Action -- better known in the U.S. -- followed and included Like To Get To Know You Well, Things Can Only Get Better, Life In One Day and the U.S. chart-topper No One Is To Blame.

If you haven't seen Howard in concert, you're really missing out. I'm almost tempted to buy a plane ticket for this tour. And in case you forgot, we had Howard on the Stuck in the '80s podcast last year and it was a fantastic visit. Click here to listen.
