Award-winning 80s pop icons Go West are celebrating their 35th anniversary with a run of UK shows in May 2021 featuring a full live orchestra, plus very special guests Cutting Crew.

Go West are one of the most successful songwriting duos of the glorious 80s pop decade. Formed in 1982 by Peter Cox (lead vocalist) and Richard Drummie (guitarist and backing vocals) the band burst into the charts with their debut ‘We Close Our Eyes’ and went on to have a string of hits including ‘Call Me’, “Don’t Look Down’, ‘Goodbye Girl’, ‘Faithful’, ‘Tracks of My Tears’. ‘King of Wishful Thinking’ which featured on the blockbuster movie ‘Pretty Woman’ starring Julia Roberts & Richard Gere, sold over 10 million copies worldwide, received an ASCAP award and was one of the most played songs on American Radio.

Their eponymously titled debut album sold 1.5 million copies worldwide and remained on the UK chart for 83 weeks. The music video for ‘We Close Our Eyes’ which launched them into the charts, was directed by Godley & Crème. Go West went on to win the people’s choice BRIT Award for ‘Best British Newcomer’ in 1986.

Celebrating 35 years of Go West launches May 2021 in Birmingham, London, Southend & Manchester. These special, must see shows feature a full live orchestra and support from fellow 80s’ chart toppers Cutting Crew

Go West will also spend September 2021 on a double headline tour with Paul Young, re-scheduled from 2020 due to the pandemic.
