    Steve and Stephen endured cross-state travel and sweltering heat to check out Tears for Fears on their 2022 tour in support of The Tipping Point. How do the new songs translate live? More importantly, did the OV squad finally make it backstage or did Tears For Fears melt into a pile of black long sleeve shirts and perspiration?

Tears for Fears champs

As a huge TFF fan, I recently discovered these guys and just had a ball listening to them. They go through each album, song by song, and know all sorts of crazy trivia and background. They also discuss many of the B sides which many people probably never heard of and even I are now tempted to give them another listen. A must subscribe if you are a fan.
