Talk Talk have announced a one-off show at London’s Royal Festival Hall to honour late singer Mark Hollis. The concert, billed as “A Celebration Of Talk Talk And Mark Hollis”, will take place on November 26. The show will include material from the albums “Spirit Of Eden” and “Laughing Stock”, which were both released after the band quit playing live.

The concert will feature founding keyboardist Simon Brenner, but not the key line-up of Talk Talk (bassist Paul Webb, drummer Lee Harris and keyboardist Tim Friese-Greene).

Playing along will be several of the musicians to play on the band’s albums and tours including percussionist Martin Ditcham, pianist Rupert Black, guitarist Jeep Hook and bassist John McKenzie. Also several special guest vocalists will be joining the show.

Mark Hollis died in February aged 64.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
