After sell-out tours of the UK and America in 2015 and 2016, China Crisis return to Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall in support of their new album Autumn in the Neighbourhood, their first album of new material in 20 years.

Eddie Lundon and Gary Daly are the founder members of the band, which started in Kirkby, Merseyside back in 1979. Sharing a love of Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, David Bowie, and Brian Eno, the pair had played with various Knowsley post-punk groups, and began writing songs together. In 1981 they recruited Dave Reilly on percussion and drums, and the following year released their first single, African and White.

Their debut album Difficult Shapes and Passive Rhythms, Some People Think It's Fun to Entertain reached number 21 in the UK album chart, but it was their follow up single, Christian, that brought the band to national prominence, peaking at number 12 in the UK Singles Chart. By this stage Reilly had left the band, and they recruited Gary "Gazza" Johnson on bass guitar and Kevin Wilkinson on drums to complete the line-up for their second album, Working with Fire and Steel – Possible Pop Songs Volume Two. And so the albums and the hits continued…

After the tragic death of Wilkinson in 1999, the line-up has varied, with only Eddie and Gary remaining constant throughout. The pair have toured on and off since 2000 and this year marks their 38th year of playing together.

This fantastic gig in the wonderfully intimate Huntingdon Hall will feature all of the classic hits, including African & White, Christian, Working with Fire and Steel, Black Man Ray and Wishful Thinking, alongside tracks from the new album. It would be a ‘Tragedy and Mystery’ if you were to miss it! Early booking advised.
