Level 42 has announced their first U.S. tour in more than 20 years, beginning June 21 in Baltimore and running through Aug. 1 in Las Vegas. (No Florida dates so far. Click here for dates near you.)
And the band has new material to promote as well. Singer/bassist Mark King recently talked to Bass Musician magazine (a great interview by Bob Considine) about Level 42's 30th anniversary as a band and the new tour.
"There should be five brand new songs on an EP that will be packaged with a Running In The Family Deluxe edition in time for our October tour in Europe," King said. "So a September release would be my guess and it’s all good funk."
Still, the U.S. tour will be heavy on the hits that '80s fans know best. "We will play as much old material as possible, mainly because that’s all there is," King said.
