Blancmange will be playing Happy Families when they tour following the re-imagined release of their 1982 debut.

To offer fans a new experience, Happy Families has been specially re-recor-ded by Blancmange and rechristened Happy Families Too. The new album, with updated artwork, will be available as a tour exclusive.

This tour, coming to The Brook in Southampton, will see Blancmange performing the album in its entirety.

Never one to stand still, Neil Arthur has given the songs that won such popular acclaim three decades ago a 21st century spin.

A later deluxe version including a mini tour poster and full reveal artwork will be launched to coincide with a download release.

Due to continuing health issues, Stephen Luscombe is unable to join Neil on the tour.

However, Neil is joined for the entire list of dates by guitarist David Rhodes, who performed on the original album, and sound engineer Adam Fuest, a long-time collaborator who will be manipulating the live sound and visuals.

They will be playing The Brook tomorrow. Tickets are £16 in advance and £18 on the door.
