Eighties act Tears for Fears has just announced the first leg of a 2022 world tour with the Alternative Rock act Garbage as support. The run will mark the group's first U.S. tour since 2017.

The trek kicks off at Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati on May 20. 

“We couldn’t be more excited to start playing concerts again. We’ve missed seeing our friends on the road around the world and the energy of performing live,” says the band’s Curt Smith in a press release.

A new studio album — the first in almost two decades — will arrive in February. 

Fans can sign up now to access presale tickets. The fan presale begins at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 16. Citi cardmembers will also have access to tickets at that time.

Tickets to the Tears for Fears concert at Riverbend go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 19 at ticketmaster.com and riverbend.org.

Each ticket purchased includes a digital download of the band’s forthcoming album, The Tipping Point.

The band has already released the titular single and its music video.

While you wait for the full album to drop, reminisce with "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," one of the hit singles — along with “Shout,” “Mad World” and “Sowing The Seeds Of Love” and others — that helped them sell 30 million albums worldwide.
