The The at Fox Theatre Oakland

Why see The The?

The The Are Back

With the impending release of their first studio album in 25 years, post punk icons The The are back on stage with a world tour this fall! The brainchild of British frontman and remaining member Matt Johnson, the alt pop outfit achieved cult status in the 80s with their new-wave synth soundscapes, hypnotic grooves and iconic, darkly poetic lyrics. As well as songs from their first proper record in a quarter of a century, don't miss classics like Uncertain Smile, Heartland and Slow Emotion Replay.

Embracing their reputation as outsiders, Matt Johnson oversaw the creation of unique, candid songs that defied genres and fashion trends of the decade of decadence, using his music as a platform to fight against the banalities of manufactured MTV pop and the social injustices of the Thatcherite era.
