British new wave legends the Human League will play live at Lincolnshire Showground next summer.
The Sheffield band, regarded as one of the most influential acts to emerge from the new wave and electropop scene, will be at the Showground on May 27.
Back in 1979 David Bowie called The Human League ‘the sound of the future’.
During the early 1980s they enjoyed a strong of hits with songs like Mirror Man, Human, Love Action, Fascination and, their most famous song, Don’t You Want Me Baby?
And they are probably more highly regarded now than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare.
They’re used to everyone from Madonna to Moby, Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, citing them as an influence.
And now the dubstep generation – notably, the acclaimed Darkstar, who cover the band’s 1982 B-side You Remind Me Of Gold on their current album, North – have begun to pay homage to the original sound of Sheffield.
Even Lady Gaga professed to be a devotee when she met them at the V Festival.
Tickets for their Showground gig start at £39.50 and are available on 08444 888999 or www.ticketline.co.uk
