Dave Stewart has revealed that Annie Lennox, his other half of the Eurythmics, will no longer be touring. Lennox and Stewart last performed in November 2022, when Eurythmics were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Stewart is performing a run of concerts dubbed ‘Eurythmics Songbook: Sweet Dreams 40th Anniversary Tour’, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Eurythmics’ 1983 breakthrough album, Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). According to the official website for the event, Stewart will be performing Eurythmics material “with Annie Lennox’s blessing” backed by all-female musicians and singers, including Rahn, Vanessa Amorosi, and his daughter Kaya Stewart. Joss Stone will also open the evening.
Said Stewart: “Looking forward to this [tour], I love performing these songs. I spent 1,000’s of hours crafting them in the studio and had the best partner in Annie but she has said she won’t be touring anymore which I totally understand but I love our songs and I love playing live so I have selected brilliant all female musicians and three wonderful female vocalists. I promise a stunning show full of memorable songs.”
