LIVE: Tears For Fears Let it All Out for CMAC

Tears for Fears played this past Wednesday to an enthusiastic crowd at CMAC.  A little rain didn’t deter the die-hard fans as they showed up with umbrellas and dancing shoes. As the show got underway, a double rainbow appeared to welcome the duo that quickly made a name for themselves back in the ’80s. 

Promptly taking the stage, the band began with some new music from their latest release, The Tipping Point, and quickly switched gears with fan favorite “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.”  Throughout the evening, they continued to play a mix of new music and hits from the ’80s.  Joking with the crowd that “We didn’t always look like this…we were once cute,” the band may have aged, but they did so like a fine wine as their vocals and the band were top notch; proving they still got it. 

Opening for Tears for Fears, was Cold War Kids, an indie rock band from the early 2000s.  Lead singer Nathan Willett proved his musical ability by not only fronting the band on vocals but also accompanying on piano, guitar, and maracas.  Not familiar with the band or their music, crowd fans appeared to approve as they stood and danced the entire set.  

Setlist:  The Tipping Point, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Secret World, Sowing the Seeds of Love, Long, Long, Long Time, Break the Man, My Demons, Rivers of Mercy, Mad World, Suffer the Children, Woman in Chains, Badman’s Song, Pale Shelter, Break It Down Again, Head Over Heels / Broken. Encore: Change and Shout
