Level 42 are an English quintet known for their unique blend of funk, pop, jazz, rock, and dance, which helped them find fame in the 80s and 90s. Hailing from the Isle of Wight, they’ve since reformed following their 1994 split, and are still writing, recording, and releasing records today.
Each of the band’s members - founders Mark King and Mike Lindup as well as Nathan King, Sean Freeman, and Pete Ray Biggin - are skilled musicians and instrumentalists, something which has helped them sell over 31 million albums worldwide.
Their eponymous debut album hit shelves in 1981, and debuted at #20 in the UK Albums chart - paving the way for years of commercial success, which saw four of their records peaking inside the Top 3. However, though they’re a strong force in the charts, the band are best experienced live on stage, having performed with the likes of Madonna as well as as a headline act across the globe.
They toured in 2012 as part of the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of ‘Running in the Family’, and released EP ‘Sirens’. They toured the UK once again in the autumns of 2014, 2015, and October 2016 supporting ‘Sirens II’. In 2017, they released an essentials album entitled 'Lessons In Love'.
Level 42 have revealed a nineteen date UK Eternity tour for October 2018. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.

I have not been to this Level 42 concert yet, but I have been to many in the past (9) and I have not been disappointed once. They are a brilliant group live, if you are a Level 42 fan and have never been, you should go as you would be amazed by them - they are fantastic.
