Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart To Tour Without Annie Lennox

Dave Stewart has revealed that he will be touring without his other half in the Eurythmics, Annie Lennox.

Stewart announced the news prior to a run of concerts celebrating the 40th anniversary of Eurythmics’ 1983 breakthrough album, Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).

“Looking forward to this [tour], I love performing these songs,” said Stewart. “I spent 1,000’s of hours crafting them in the studio and had the best partner in Annie but she has said she won’t be touring anymore which I totally understand but I love our songs and I love playing live so I have selected brilliant all female musicians and three wonderful female vocalists. I promise a stunning show full of memorable songs.”

Meanwhile, only one concert, November 7 in Basel, Switzerland, at Halle Messe Basel, has been revealed. The event’s official website notes that Stewart will be performing Eurythmics material “with Annie Lennox’s blessing, as she is no longer touring.”

British soul singer and songwriter Joss Stone will open the evening. Stewart also promised that more performances would be announced soon.
