This has been on iPlayer for a while and it’s an enjoyable blast of 80s nostalgia. Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith start their live set, bravely, by letting Lorde’s version of Everybody Wants to Rule the World ring out over a darkened stage – before joining in with their own.
After that there’s a roll call of songs that are as gem-like as you remember, from Mad World to Pale Shelter and a cathartic Shout.
Highlights of a performance by the band at the BBC Radio Theatre in London. After forming as synth pop duo in the early 1980s, Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith achieved huge success on both sides of the Atlantic, and as a result of such a huge fan base over 30,000 people applied to be part of the audience for this intimate gig. Here, the boys from Bath perform their classic hits, including Mad World, Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World and Sowing the Seeds of Love.
