I Am Arrows Cover Tears For Fears At Secret London Gig
August 25, 2010
I Am Arrows covered a Tears For Fears song as they played a surprise gig in London last night (August 24).
The band, fronted by former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows, performed to a crowd of around 50 family and friends at The Stag in North London.
Kicking off with album opener ‘Nun’, Burrows joked that the impromptu show was a delayed launch party for their debut album, which was released last week.
The singer and his band remained in high spirits throughout the short set - at one point responding to an audience member’s song request and bursting into a sporadic cover of ‘Eye Of The Tiger’.
After performing album track ‘Another Picture Of You’ and next single ‘Hurricane’, I Am Arrows then covered Tears For Fears’ classic ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’.
“This is a song by Tears For Fears and we’re bound to **** it up, but it’s not our song,“ Burrows said.
“We’re missing the guy that does the most bits,” he added, referring to guitarist Adam Chetwood, who became a father two days ago.
After thanking the venue’s staff, I Am Arrows concluded their set with recent single ‘Green Grass’.
