EURYTHMICS REUNITE FOR A NIGHT!

 

On January 28, 2014, Eurythmics reunited in remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first appearance on US TV on the Ed Sullivan show.  They performed a song that Annie Lennox reportedly wanted to perform, The Fool On The Hill.  In honor of that performance, I'm posting a rare US performance of The Tourists on American soil performing another Beatles hit, Ticket To RideClick on the Stop button at the bottom of this page to disable the background music before listening to this rare performance.

 

Ticket to Ride, The Tourists Live at Stars

This recording was taken from a local radio broadcast of a Tourists concert, recorded live at Stars, in Philadelphia, on April 12, 1980.  The set list that night was:

Don't Get Left Behind 
Blind Among the Flowers
It Doesn't Have to Be This Way
Nothing to Do
The Loneliest Man in the World
Everywhere You Look
I Only Want to Be with You
So Good to Be Back Home Again
Talk to Me
Circular Fever
Ticket to Ride
I'm Going to Change My Mind
