Eighties New Wave Artists Headline Retro Futura Tour This Summer

Break out the bangle bracelets or slip on a skinny tie – the ’80s are making a comeback with this summer’s Retro Futura tour. The lineup reads like the hand-written cassette cover of a homemade mix tape: Howard Jones, English Beat, Men Without Hats, Modern English and Katrina (formerly of Katrina of the Waves), Paul Young, and Annabella (of Bow Wow Wow). The month-long tour makes a stop at the Times Union Center in Albany on August 13.
