Concert Information

English new wave band Wang Chung will join Totally Tubular Festival at Riverbend Music Center on Saturday, July 27! Regretfully, The Romantics will no longer be performing due to an unforeseen medical situation.

From The Romantics: "We regret to announce that due to an unforeseen medical situation, The Romantics are unfortunately unable to perform on the upcoming Totally Tubular Tour this summer. We appreciate our fans understanding and we hope to see everyone soon once we’re able to hit the road again. Best wishes for a great time to all at the upcoming Totally Tubular Festival shows."

The Totally Tubular Festival will debut in 17 markets across North America starting in June and wrapping up on Saturday, July 27 in Cincinnati, Ohio at Riverbend Music Center.

The festival features artists that exploded in the pop culture zeitgeist in the early to mid- 1980’s thanks mainly to the high rotation of their music videos on MTV; the genre has also seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years. The artists performing on the 2024 tour include THOMAS DOLBY, THOMPSON TWINS’ TOM BAILEY, MODERN ENGLISH, MEN WITHOUT HATS, WANG CHUNG, BOW WOW WOW, TOMMY TUTONE and EDDIE MUNOZ OF THE PLIMSOULS.

“This is a dream lineup for those who love the music of the early 1980’s, and for those who want to relive the days when life was…plain and simply--a total party,” says Jon Pleeter, CPO (Chief Party Officer) of TOTALLY TUBULAR FESTIVAL. “You wore dayglow, you wore parachute pants, you had big hair, perms and more perms, mullets, leg warmers, along with tons of buttons and lots of rubber bracelets. You wore sunglasses at night. The choruses were big, and the hooks were bigger—the party didn’t end.”

A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go towards food banks locally in each market.
