Re-formed 80s band The Blow Monkeys are appearing at the Horn in St Albans next Thursday, July 21.

With worldwide hits such as Digging Your Scene and It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way, the band blazed a trail across the 1980s, led by singer-songwriter Robert Howard (aka Dr Robert), assisted by bassist Mick Anker, drummer Tony Kiley and saxophonist Neville Henry.

They further cemented their reputation with hits such as Choice?, Wait (a UK top five with soul diva Kym Mazelle) and Celebrate (The Day After You), a duet with soul legend Curtis Mayfield.

The band parted company in 1990 and re-formed in 2008, releasing their first new studio album in 18 years.

Tickets are £20 in advance or £23 on the door.

Scottish band The LaFontaines bring their blend of hip hop, rock and pop to The Horn next Wednesday, July 20.

Formed in 2010, they comprise Kerr Okan, Jamie Keenan, John Gerard, Iain Findlay, and Darren McCaughey.

In support will be The Wholls and Sweet Notion Black.

Tickets are £5 in advance or £7 on the door.
