Dave Wakeling, one of the driving forces of the 1980s New Wave movement, was at the Winnipeg Free Press News Café Tuesday.
The lead singer of the English Beat will also perform a song or two on his own with an acoustic guitar. The rest? Well, he’ll save it for later.
Later, of course, being his band’s show at the Pyramid Cabaret. Tickets are $29.40 and can be bought through Ticketmaster.
The English Beat, known simply as the Beat in their native England, put out three studio albums in the early ’80s and had a multitude of hit singles, including Save It For Later, Tears of a Clown, Mirror In the Bathroom, and Whine & Grine.
After the Beat’s breakup in 1983, Wakeling and fellow frontman Ranking Roger went on to form General Public, which had its biggest success with Tenderness.
