Written by gaytourism

Soft Cell, the band behind the iconic version of Tainted Love, are reuniting.

Gay singer Marc Almond and multi-instrumentalist Dave Ball announced they will be reuniting and performing at The O2 Arena in London.

The 80s synth pop band originally split in 1984, before a reunion between 2001 and 2005.

‘With Soft Cell I always felt something was unfinished,’ Almond said.

‘This last ever final show will be the best ever ending.

‘It will be a real statement and send off, and thank you to every fan.’

Soft Cell’s last ever performance

This will be the first UK show in 15 years, and is set to be their last ever performance.

‘We live in very interesting times,’ Ball added. ‘2018 promises to be a very special year.’

Soft Cell released five studio albums, with the most recent being 2002 reunion record Cruelty Without Beauty. They had 10 top 40 hits in the UK.

The band will play the O2 Arena in London on September 30, 2018 – tickets are available here from Friday 26 February.
