Tears for Fears - October 2016

There has been many 'best days' at the shop - but this may top the list!  Curt Smith and Jamie Wollam came to the shop.  Never in a million years did i think we'd get the chance to have them in.  With the wonders of Facebook, i sent Jamie Wollam a note (drummer since 2010) and boom! they came to the shop.  TFF played Red Rocks on the 10/3 and they had a date to play in the Spring on the 5th so they had down time and wanted to see the city.  We set them up with Dr. Martens.  Curt Smith is a big fan of the brand and has been since he was a kid and he loved our selection.  Finally deciding on a pair of 8 eye burgundy Vegan boots - not because he didn't wear leather but he loved the color!

Tears for Fears - Record signing

Knowing they were coming to the shop, I brought all my early TFF albums & singles to get signed.  Curt was more than gracious in signing them - telling the stories about how the covers came about, who was on them etc.. So when you hear me play Tears at the club you know Curt had his hands on these records!

Acting on your best behavior with Curt Smith

Curt was really good sport.  We do ticket giveaways for concert all the time at the shop and we had to draw a few names for the upcoming Pennywise concert.  We asked Curt to do it on video and he was up for the challenge ... that was just a little fun!!!!

Tears for Fears - Signature Wall

If ever a chance to see a show at Red Rocks - go, the venue is magical.  TFF was playing on the 3rd at Red Rocks, we already had tickets to see them but Jamie met up with us after and took us all back stage for a Meet and Greet.  Then he took care of us at the Colorado Spring show on the 5th.  We sat in the very back at the Pikes Peak Center and during the show Curt was greeting the crowd and commented 'it's nice to see you all up close and those in the back we'll see you later", i can only assume he meant us as we did join them after the show

Tears for Fears - Rock Star Boot

This rare John Fluevog Dr. Marten Wingtip boot was made a little more special with them being autographed by Tears for Fears.  Another Soul for the boot collection, these were purchased back in the early 1990's at our shop and were brought back to us in hopes to make into the Rock Star collection.  Well they made it in a big way!  ( thanks Michael )
