Standing in the Dark 30 Yeark

Standing in the Dark 30 Yeark

January 1984, the release of what would become one of the most influential recordings of its time. Standing In The Dark is directly responsible for spawning so many of indie hit makers over the years. Recorded independently and released through CBS records, Platinum Blonde burst onto the world of “New Wave” with a bang! Selling an astonishing 4 times platinum with the singles “Doesn’t Really Matter,” “Not In Love,” “Sad Sad Rain,” “Take It From Me” and “Standing In The Dark,” Platinum Blonde’s influence spans far beyond the albums sold. In 2011 “Not In Love” received a massive rebirth when the Crystal Castles version of the song featuring Robert Smith of the Cure became an international hit. The unique Platinum Blonde sound and composition of this recording has also been covered by an array of musical artists spanning from Rap to Metal.

The 30th Anniversary tour will be the only opportunity to see Platinum Blonde play all the hit singles and view rare unseen video footage of the making of this ground breaking record. Before each show the band will perform an acoustic set of all the songs on Standing In The Dark to a select few VIP ticket holders and host a Q&A with the faithful. The band will also be re-issuing Standing In The Dark on vinyl and CD signed by the original three lads. The live show will be a massive undertaking of visual story-telling, light and special effects that will span the course of two full hours. The show will contain songs old and new; the band’s latest hit singles will take the audience full circle into 2014.
