Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox were back together on stage this week as Eurythmics played a three-song set at the Rainforest Fund benefit at New York’s Beacon Theater on Monday evening.
There was no messing around as they performed their three biggest hits in America, namely ‘Would I Lie To You?’ (#5) , an acoustic ‘Here Comes The Rain Again’ (#4) and a triumphant ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)’ (#1).
The pair hadn’t played any Eurythmics songs live on stage together for almost 15 years, so this was something quite special.
After some excellent Eurythmics vinyl reissues from Sony in 2018, disappointingly, it all went very quiet this year with nothing being reissued at all from the archive. It was the 35th anniversary of UMC-controlled 1984 (For The Love Of Big Brother) ‘music-derived-from’ soundtrack, for example. Let’s hope plans are afoot for 2020.
