The Human League at Liverpool Sound City 2017 at Liverpool Waters, 25 May 2017 Tickets from £45.00 — Book now

Liverpool’s Sound City marks its 10th anniversary with a series of concerts at Liverpool Waters on Clarence Dock – with the opening night featuring influential Sheffield group The Human League.

The electronic band, formed in 1977 and best known for their Number One Don’t You Want Me, are fronted by Phil Oakey, Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley. During a 40-year career that has seen them release nine studio albums and sell more than 20 million records worldwide, The Human League have influenced the likes of Moby and been sampled by George Michael, among countless others. David Bowie famously called them ‘the future of pop music’.

For this rare appearance, they will be playing hits from their epoch-defining albums Reproduction, Travelogue, Dare, Hysteria and Crash.

They are joined at Clarence Dock by Art of Noise – who will be rebooting their classic 1986 album In Visible Silence – and Manchester’s A Certain Ratio, who were discovered by the late Tony Wilson.
