Legendary synth-pop duo Soft Cell have announced plans to celebrate the end of their decade-sspanning music career with a singular show for fans this September.
Marc Almond and Dave Ball will perform one last time as Soft Cell at London’s 02 arena on September 30, nearly 37 years after the release of their debut album Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret, which was released in November 1981.
The pair, best known for their 1982 Hot 100 top 10 hit cover of Gloria Jones’ “Tainted Love,” haven’t performed together in fifteen years. Almond said in a press release that he felt the last performance was the right way to end things.
“With Soft Cell I always felt something was unfinished. This last ever final show will be the best ever ending. It will be a real statement and send off, and thank you to every fan.”
