Paloma Faith (pictured above) has been announced as a replacement for Tears for Fears as the Saturday headliner at Bath Festivals 70th Anniversary, which is held at The Recreation Ground, Bath, on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May 2018.
Tears for Fears have been forced to postpone their sold-out UK tour including all festival appearances due to unforeseen health concerns. Ticketholders for the festival are being contacted with details of the options available.
The director of Orchard Media and Events Group which helped organise the line-up, Pablo Janczur, commented on the booking:
“We’ve acted quickly to secure Paloma, an artist at the top of her game, and we hope that the terrific new bill, which boasts some of the UK’s finest female vocalists, will prove just as popular. That plus Robert Plant and another big line up on Sunday makes it a huge weekend of music to round off the 70th anniversary of The Bath Festival.”
Paloma Faith made a statement about her appearance:
“I’m saddened to hear that illness has struck a member of Tears for Fears, but I’m so glad that I can jump in and make sure everyone has the best time. I promise to give it my all and get everyone up dancing.”
The festival's line-up will still be closed by Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, with other appearances coming from Alison Moyet, Imelda May, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Midge Ure, Seth Lakeman, Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, The Wandering Hearts, and more.
