New Wave band The Vapors, who had a worldwide hit with Turning Japanese in 1980, are reforming after 35 years to perform a small number of gigs in the UK and Ireland.

Originally discovered by The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and co-managed by Paul Weller’s father, The Vapors eventually split in 1981 after 4 singles and 2 albums. They achieved their biggest hit with Turning Japanese which reached number #3 in the UK charts, number #1 in Australia, and entered the US top 40.

Taken from the now iconic album ‘New Clear Days’, the song regularly features on 80s, punk and New Wave compilation albums, and has been used in films including Charlie’s Angels.

Now reformed, this is a rare opportunity to see this cult 80s band live in concert breathing new life into classic songs.

Please note, this is an all standing event.
