Howard Jones tickets

Howard Jones tickets - Howard Jones Tour

Howard Jones Schedule

Singer Howard Jones was one of the central figures of mid-'80s synth pop. Jones' music mingled the technology-soaked sound of new wave with the upbeat hopefulness of the late '60s pop era. Jones got his start in the music industry by playing the Southampton circuit, moving in on global fame in the early 1980s with the release of the single "New Song." Successive singles like "What Is Love" and "Pearl in the Shell" became instant classics, and even though Jones' career cooled off a bit after the '90s, he continues to record hits today. To take a step back in time, make sure you grab your tickets now through StubHub for Howard Jones before it's too late!

Howard Jones Background

Hailing from Southampton, England, Jones took up the piano at the tender age of seven. By the time he hit his formative teen years, his family had moved Canada. It was there that he joined his first band. Known as Warrior, the group specialized in progressive rock. Eventually, Jones returned to England, where he was a part of various groups. In the mid-'70s, Jones went to the Royal Northern College of Music. He eventually dropped out, and gigged with a host of local Southampton funk and jazz bands. Jones then pursued a solo career using drum machines and synthesizers. For his one-man performances, Jones included mime Jed Hoile in his shows. John Peel took notice of Jones and gave the keyboardist a BBC session. Jones began opening for new wave synth pop acts around England. By 1983, he had inked a deal with WEA in Europe and England. He also signed on with Elektra in the U.S.

"New Song" was his first single, which arrived in England in the fall of 1983. It landed at No. 3 on the charts. "What Is Love," his sophomore single, came out a few months later and climbed to No. 2. In the spring of 1984, Jones' first album, Human Lib, dropped. It charted at No. 1 in England. Constant exposure on MTV led to the album's success in America. "What Is Love" and "New Song" claimed spots in the American Top 40 late in 1984, while "Pearl in the Shell" earned him his third British Top 10 track.

In 1985, Jones replaced Hoile with a touring band and issued his sophomore album, Dream into Action. The record yielded the No. 10 spot and claimed platinum status in the U.S. The album featured hits like "Life in One Day," "Like to Get to Know You Well," "Things Can Only Get Better" and "Look Mama." An EP of remixes, Action Replay, arrived in 1986 that included an updated rendition of "No One Is to Blame." This song became Jones' largest hit, scoring the No. 4 spot. Cross That Line dropped in the spring of 1989. "Everlasting Love" was the first track to be issued off the album and earned its place as a No. 1 adult contemporary hit in the U.S., landing at No. 13. In the Running followed three years later, and The Best of Howard Jones came out in 1993. A year later Jones embarked on a tour, performing acoustic shows. At these shows, he peddled Working in the Backroom - an album he cut at his home studio and issued on his own label, Dtox Records, at his live shows. Jones continued to tour Europe and the U.S. over the next few years. And, in 1996 he put out Live Acoustic Americawith People following two years later. Perform '00 (2000); Perform '01 (2001); and The Peaceful Tour (2002) were issued prior to 2005's Revolution of the Heart.
