Lost 80’s live saw The Escape Club perform as a full four piece for the first time in 25 years. In 2019 Johnnie Christo rejoined the band at last. Taking up the Rap in Wild Wild West and playing his distinctive bass style. The band felt whole again.
We had a great time touring the USA with the show and made a lot of new friends along the way. From Detroit to Salt Lake City to Texas and California, we played at 17 shows in all. It was a long, hot Summer and we roasted at times but it was worth it.
The band performed Wild Wild West every night as well as I’ll be there, Shake for the Sheikh and Call it Poison. We enjoyed every minute onstage. Thanks to all of you who turned out to see us and sing along with our songs.
Along with our friends, Wang Chung, The Vapors, The Motels, Real Life, Farrington and Mann and many others, we had a blast. We’re definitely looking forward to touring the USA again very soon. Hope to see you out there!
Our Favorite shows?
L.A.’s Greek Theater definitely, The Mountain Winery in Saratoga was an amazing venue. Hidalgo was crazy – great fun. Humphreys by the Bay in San Diego…the list goes on. It’s hard to say which one was best, the whole tour had so many surprises. If you were at any of them, we’d love to hear about your experiences.
If you’d like to come and see us, look out for our gigs here. If you’d like us to play a city near you, let us know. We’ll try to make it happen. 2020 looks like it could be another full year. We’ll keep you posted.
