Level 42 will mark the 40th anniversary of the release of their first-ever single ‘Love Meeting Love’ [which was recorded and released in 1980] in 2020 and will do so with all cylinders firing and sounding fresher than ever. AEG Presents is delighted to announce that the band will undertake the 24-date ‘From Eternity To Here’ UK tour in 2020. Tickets will be on sale from 10:00 am on Friday 25 October 2019 via aegpresents.co.uk and level42.com.
The ‘From Eternity To Here’ UK tour will see the band play the length and breadth of the country. After everything that they have achieved, they have no interest in slowing down. “No way!” says bassist and frontman Mark King; “Touring with the band this year has been about as much fun as I can remember having had on the road and, if you had asked me back in 1980 if I thought we would be selling out theatres around the world when I was sixty years old, I probably would have laughed! Hand on heart, this year has been amazing. Re-invention can be a wonderful thing!” Mark King is a musician who has truly created a sound and style all of his own and is in constant demand, both from the fans and from his peers – he’s just been announced as a special guest on Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins’ forthcoming record.
Level 42 is a band with nothing to prove, but all the desire to continue their run at the top. To date the band and Mark have released 14 studio albums, 7 live albums, the Sirens’ EP, and 6 compilation albums, had 18 top 40 singles, including the era-defining ‘Lessons in Love’, ‘Something About You’, ‘Leaving Me Now’, ‘Running in the Family’, and ‘Hot Water’, sold-out Wembley Arena for a total of 21 nights and sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide. In short, they have proven to be one of the most successful British bands ever and, with the recent re-issues of the band’s vast catalogue on Universal Music, and the ‘Collected’ series on CD and Vinyl, it is clear they continue to set the benchmark for British Jazz Funk.
