The Truth London Tickets
Back in the '80s when the second British invasion in music was in full swing, British "mod revival" band The Truth was rocking the London scene with their own brand of new wave and rock classics. It was an exciting time for the music industry: The MTV generation was born, and superstardom had never been so accessible. It was by far, one of the best times for young, inventive musicians to get on stage and show the world what they were made of.
The Birth of the Band
The Truth began their journey in 1982 when musician Dennis Greaves of the popular '80s band Nine Below Zero began to look for a new band geared toward new wave music. Eventually, he and his friend Mick Lister formed The Truth. Along with the two founding members, the original members of The Truth included Chris Skornia, Gary Wallis and Brain Bethell. Greaves and Lister both played the guitar and the jawbone and handled the vocals as well.
Albums and Chart Toppers
Before releasing their first album Playground in 1985, The Truth was known for singles such as "Confusion (Hits Us Every Time)" and "A Step In The Right Direction," which shot up the U.K. charts. In 1987, the band's album Weapons of Love successfully crossed over to the other side of the world, landing in the Top 100 on the U.S. charts. In their final year as a band in the '80s, The Truth released their album Jump, which included hits "God Gave Rock n' Roll to You" and "Throwing It All Away."
The Truth's successful crossover in 1987 to the international market reached more fans across the world with their breakthrough album, Weapons of Love. The album, which landed at the 65th spot on the U.S. charts, is considered to be the band's biggest achievement in terms of expanding not just their fan base but also their musical influence. With their success, new wave extended its popularity in the United States and other parts of the world, which led to a massive demand for the band's concerts. As the band became more popular, fans clamoured for more concert tickets, live performances and copies of their albums.
