Chart-toppers Level 42 bring their Eternity Tour to the Ipswich Regent next year.

Front man and bassist Mark King said: “We can’t wait to get on the road again in the UK, it’s always such a hoot and our fans are always a joy to play to.

“The band is ever evolving and reinvention, both musically and in the way we present ourselves, has become something of a tradition for Level.

“The Eternity Tour will be a chance for us to showcase this once again and we’ll be playing all our best material as well as some new tracks and maybe a few deeper cuts too. We are also very happy to welcome The Blow Monkeys as special guests for the tour, how cool is that.”

Tickets for the October 12 gig go sale at 9am, this Friday. They’re also at Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion next October 6.

Level 42 have sold more than 30million albums in nearly four decades. Their hits include Lessons In Love, Something About You, Running In The Family and It’s Over.

The Blow Monkeys, renowned for their live performances, are known for hits like Digging Your Scene, It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way and their cover of Lesley Gore’s You Don’t Own Me which featured on the Dirty Dancing 1987 soundtrack. They’ve just released new album The Wild River.
