Members of Talk Talk to Honour the Life of Mark Hollis with Special Concert in London This November

In honour of the life of Mark Hollis, the enigmatic frontman of highly influential and Avant-garde British band Talk Talk,  London’s Southbank Centre and Eat Your Own Ears have scheduled a special tribute concert at the Royal Festival Hall this November.

The event will feature special guests and original members of the band performing songs from the across entire Talk Talk catalogue, including early “new wave” records such as The Party’s OverIt’s My LifeThe Colour of Spring as well as their later experimental masterpieces Spirit Of Eden and Laughing Stock—albums way ahead of their time that paved the way for a new genre entirely—post-rock, as well as carving out a blueprint for bands like Radiohead to thrive in the late 90s.

Hollis passed away from an illness this past February, after retiring from the music industry around 1998, while making only the occasional appearances as a guest performing over the following two decades.

A Celebration of Talk Talk and Mark Hollis will take place on November 26th at the Southbank Centre in London, with tickets starting at £25.
