Eurythmics legend Dave Stewart is heading on a European tour this November to mark the 40th anniversary of 'Sweet Dreams'.
The Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary UK and European Tour will be the first time in more than 20 years that fans can see a full-length show of Eurythmics classics – performed by Stewart himself.
"I love playing live shows and am so excited to be onstage with this amazing lineup of musicians and singers most of whom I have performed with on many occasions," Stewart said.
"Choosing a band that are all outstanding female musicians led by the brilliant keyboardist Hannah Koppenburg is my way of paying homage to my great friend and collaborator Annie Lennox."
Tickets go on sale September 8th at 12pm here.
The tour will also stop off in Stewart's hometown of Sunderland for a performance at the Sunderland Empire Theatre.
It follows on from the successful one-off Eurythmics Songbook show at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 2019 – and has been given the blessing of Stewart's musical partner, Annie Lennox, who no longer tours.
