A Flock of Seagulls

SATURDAY 2ND SEPTEMBER 2023

Doors 8pm

Who can forget the 80’s sensations A Flock of Seagulls, along with their anthemic classics “Wishing (I Had A Photograph of You)" & “The More You Live The More You Love”

In 1982 the group’s single, produced by Mike Howlett “I Ran (So Far Away)” became a worldwide hit, most notably reaching number 1 in Australia and the top 10 in the US and New Zealand (where the band became popular). The parent album “A Flock of Seagulls” and another single “Space Age Love Song” were also a huge success. In late 1982 the band from Liverpool found major success with “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)” which reached the top 10. As it turned out, 1982 would prove to be the peak year of their commercial and critical success. The band is regarded as breaking the ground for other musical acts during the advent of the video music area.


1983 saw the release of three singles to back their second album “Listen”. The album bore a heavily processed electronic sound that was a break from the Duran Duran guitar and bass driven sound of their début. The group produced a third album in 1984 that leant closer to a guitar sound. “The More You Live, The More You Love” was “The Story of a Young Heart’s” lead single.


“A Flock Of Seagulls”, the album went silver in The UK and contained the hits “Wishing (I Had A Photograph of You)”, “I Ran, So Far Away” & “Space Age Love Song”
