Reviews of The Alarm

First gaining recognition in the early ‘80s as an opening act for U2, Welsh band The Alarm quickly won a dedicated following with hit songs like “Sixty Eight Guns,” “Sold Me Down the River” and “Rain in the Summertime.” The new wave/alternative rockers went on to share the stage with legends like The Police and Bob Dylan. Now fronted once again by original lead vocalist Mike Peters, who recently served as lead singer for Big Country, The Alarm has become something of a supergroup, with members culled from some of the best groups of 1980s British alternative music, including The Cult, Gene Loves Jezebel, Sisters of Mercy and Stiff Little Fingers.

I’ve attended every one of these, and this ranks among one of my least favorites, although I’m still somewhat glad I went. It started off great, with artists who realized that this was an 80’s concert, who played their hits from the 80’s in nice...continued

I've been to this concert series before (spectacular), and unfortunately #8 80s Weekend was just ok. There were sound issues throughout the entire evening, microphones stalling, band instruments sounding quiet, then blaring. Also, 2 of the...continued

Awesome inspiring performance by The Alarm! Mike Peters never fails to please the crowd and this show was no exception! The crowd was on their feet with hands raised & singing every song! The band should still be playing larger venues! GREAT!!!!!!!

The new wave acts were great but we were so disappointed when we found out that neither Tone Loc nor Young MC were performing. What happened? Tone Loc t-shirts were still on sale the night of the event! We bought the tickets mostly because those...continued

attended SIGMA LXXXV Tour: The Alarm, Modern English + Jay Aston’s GLJ on Aug 16 2019

Went to see Modern English who always put on a great show. Was impressed with The Alarm as they were very entertaining. GLJ was good too, wish the lead singer would keep his politics to himself. But they put on a good show none the less. Modern...continued

I’ve been to many of the 80’s revival shows and this is the second one that the posted entertainers don’t show up? No mentions made and I’m scratching my head trying to understand why they even list them if there is any chance of artists not...continued

I loved it! The artists brought tons of energy. Tone Loc and the other hip hop artist no-showed but we're replaced by Tag Team, which was actually better.

This was my 2nd 80s weekend, and we loved it with only a few remarks:

1. General Public, Tone-Loc, and Young MC did not perform - what happened?

2. As this was an 80s show, why did the organizers feel the need to put Tag Team on stage? I...continued

This show has been a staple for us 80s fans. It’s a well oiled machine and there’s no long pauses between acts. The fun 80s vibe runs all in time. A fun fun experience! It’s like time travel! Venue is excellent too! Great staff! Thank you all!
