‘Every Day Hurts’, ‘My Oh My’, ‘Strange Little Girl’ and many more.

"In short if you have any doubts about Sad Cafe still being the real deal don't worry, they are absolutely bang on form and on top of their game. Amazing night.” (UK tour review , 2023)

Regarded by many as one of the best live bands of the 80s, Sad Café are back!

“A joyful trip down memory lane”

(Mark Taylor, Record Collector Giants of Rock review 2022)

Sad Café, one of the great classic English rock bands of the 70s and 80s have reformed due to public demand to do a show with all the hits and fan favourites.

Led by long time bassist Des Tong, the band features vocalist and percussionist Barry James Thomas, Dave Day lead guitar/vocals, Matt Steele keyboards, Neil Shaw-Hulme, sax/vocals and Steve Gibson on drums.

This is the band that brought you the great Everyday Hurts (#3 on the UK charts), My Oh My, Strange Little Girl, Black Rose and I'm in Love Again along with the big U.S. hits La-Di-Da and Run Home Girl.

Always a challenge to replace their late lead singer Paul Young (also Mike and the Mechanics), who tragically died in 2000, they have finally found the perfect voice,and now press on to a new era with a show which brings together the great hits of the past with the matured and excellent musicianship of the present.

Sad Café fans have warmly and enthusiastically embraced the new line up as the shows continue to bring new and existing fans together to share their love for this incredible band and their music.

"One of the best gigs we've had at the Riverhead Theatre for a long time. Looking forward to you coming back. Awesome show". (UK tour review, 2023)
