Tears for Fears was watching the final scene of the quintessentially ‘80s movie Real Genius, when the outcast geniuses cavort in popcorn with “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” playing in the background. That day, I fell in love with blonde Val Kilmer… and Tears for Fears. What can I say? I was a five year old with good taste.
Thirty years later, Tears for Fears rocks Freedom Hill in Sterling Heights TONIGHT with special guest Berlin. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Lawn tickets are still available at $25/each. Newbie download suggestion: Shout: The Very Best of Tears for Fears; it doesn’t include “Start of the Breakdown,” but it does include “Pale Shelter”, “Head Over Heels”, and “Mad World”.
