The classic album performed in its entirety plus their other greatest hits, with Southbank Sinfonia. Conducted byAnne Dudley.
Martin Fry’s timeless The Lexicon Of Love went straight to number one upon release. Fusing dance floor finesse with a post-punk attitude, the album spawned timeless tracks such "Poison Arrow", "The Look Of Love", "Tears Are Not Enough", and "All Of My Heart". The album saw ABC enchant the world with their own unique brand of pop and remains one of the best albums of all time.
The Lexicon Of Love Orchestra tour first came to fruition in 2009 with countless 5 star reviews from a one off show at The Royal Albert Hall with Martin donning his iconic gold lame suit. It sees Martin joined by Southbank Sinfonia and long time collaborator Anne Dudley as conductor for a truly magical evening celebrating this pop masterpiece. 2024 will be 15 years since that first partnership that sees audiences returning again and again.

Worldwide hits and six studio albums later; ABC demonstrate that even now over 40 years on from The Lexicon Of Love, Martin Fry’s song-writing and musicianship is still as contemporary as it was in the beginning.
In June 2022, ABC toured The Lexicon of Love with the full symphonic orchestra to celebrate 40 years since its original release. The magic was captured at their hometown gig in Sheffield on the very date of release 40 years on.
