Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart has said that his bandmate Annie Lennox “won’t be touring anymore”.
Stewart revealed this via a social media post amid rumours that the duo were set to reunite for a major world tour, having briefly returned for some rare performances at last year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Awards ceremony.
“Eurythmics have been offered a huge amount to reform for a world tour”, a source said. “Seeing them perform together again at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has really stirred the interests of promoters who are throwing money at the band to hit the road again”.
“I totally understand” Says Stewart
Taking to social media, Stewart did confirm plans for a live tour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Eurythmics’ breakthrough album ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)’, which arrived in 1983.
However, he also revealed that Lennox would not feature.
“Looking forward to this [tour], I love performing these songs”, Stewart wrote.
He also added, “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”.
