The Human League are so credible it’s incredible. In fact, they’re probably more highly regarded in 2017 than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare! 

They’re used to everyone from Madonna to Moby, Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, citing them as an influence. Now the dubstep generation – notably, the acclaimed Darkstar, who cover the League’s 1982 B-side ‘You Remind Me Of Gold’ on their current album, North – have begun to pay homage to the original sound of Sheffield. 

But they’re about more than esoteric infiltration – there has been mainstream penetration, too, commensurate with a band who gave us the greatest ever Christmas Number 1 single with 1981/2’s ‘Don’t You Want Me’, who have had four Top 10 albums and eight Top 10 singles in the UK as well as two US Number 1 singles and sold 20 million records worldwide: the most lauded TV program of recent times, time-travel saga Ashes To Ashes, based one of its main characters on Joanne Catherall.

“We shouldn’t have gone on this long as we have – we should have ‘gone rock’ by now, like Depeche Mode, Simple Minds and U2 did. But we’re still a pop group.” 

Not just a pop group – possibly the last great pop group. Believe. 

 

DISABILITY ACCESS

Our venue is accessible to all guests and we make every effort to ensure our guests with disabilities are accommodated to ensure a memorable and fun experience.

If you are a disabled visitor and require a carer to attend the event with you, it may be possible to claim a discounted or complimentary ticket for the carer. Please check with the sales advisor when you make your booking as they will need to send you a form to fill in with details.

Please inform us at the time of booking if you need a wheelchair space or have any special requirements, so that we can ensure this is taken care of before you arrive.

For our outdoor Music Live, a designated viewing area is allocated. 

Please note only one carer can accompany a disabled guest into the designated area (discretion will be applied where children are also in attendance).
