ABC: The Lexicon of Love

With the Southbank Sinfonia and conducted by Anne Dudley



ABC performs the iconic debut album ‘The Lexicon Of Love’ in its entirety plus all the greatest hits, joined by the Southbank Sinfonia and long-time collaborator Anne Dudley, who will conduct the evening.

‘The Lexicon Of Love’ was first released in 1982 and went straight to number one. Fusing dance floor finesse with a post-punk attitude, the album spawned timeless tracks such ‘Poison Arrow’, ‘The Look Of Love’ , Tears Are Not Enough’ and ‘All Of My Heart’. The album saw ABC enchant the world with their own unique brand of pop.

Martin Fry’s combination of sly northern wit and subversive intelligence, pop flamboyance and rock swagger, gold lame and lyrics that deal with treachery make this album still as contemporary as it was in the beginning.

ABC were formed in Sheffield in the 1980s when they decided they wanted to fuse the world of disco funk with their own unique post punk vision. ABC’s debut album ‘The Lexicon Of Love’ (‘82) went to No.1 and sold over a million records.
