Fade To Grey singer has been in bed for two days with viral infection but is determined to carry on with his new tour
Eighties pop singer Steve Strange said he will defy doctor’s orders and perform at a gig in Birmingham on Thursday, September 19
The New Romantic singer, who is touring with his band Visage, has been suffering from a viral infection and doctors had warned him he could damage his voice if he carries on with his tour.
He said: “I am defying doctor’s orders. They have said my voice could go altogether and my voice is my tool. I have had two days in bed but I am really looking forward to the gig in Birmingham.”
He added: “We have great memories of Birmingham and in the early days we supported Duran Duran at the Rum Runner.”
Steve Strange was a pioneer of the New Romantic movement and ran the London club Blitz, an 80s glam nightspot.
Visage - whose hits include electropop classic Fade to Grey - play The Institute in Digbeth on September 19 at 7pm.
