Anne Dudley conductor | The Southbank Symphonia

ABC will be performing their iconic debut album ‘The Lexicon Of Love’ in its entirety plus all the greatest hits. They will be joined by the Southbank Sinfonia and longtime 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 and remains one of the best albums of all time.

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.

“Lavish, intricate, spirited and funky” ***** The Daily Telegraph
