    Looking forward to the concert at Birchmere! This fulfills a 20 year old wish of mine to see you all in concert. I couldn’t afford your albums when I was a teenager, much less a ticket to a concert. Thanks Mark & Co.

    Outstanding news that Level 42 are coming to North America!!!

    Mark, please bring the boys to Toronto this time through too please. Toronto will never stop diggin’ on 42. This town needs a drop kick of funk that only Level can bring, so please, bring it.

  23. Posted 11 April 2010 at 18:23 |

    Just got FRONT ROW for San Francisco! I’m still in shock…

    Posted 12 April 2010 at 12:56 |

    Hello to the band! As the band is headed to Japan, is there any chance for a detour to Australia? Would love to see you guys for the first time here in Melbourne!

    Still never seen the band live and been a fan for 27 years…

    All the best on your 30th Anniversary Tour…

    PLEAAASE say you’ll come to Dallas (or somewhere close to us) the 25th or 26th! I’m desperate! I’ve already purchased tickets for October dates in England and can’t quite afford to fly elsewhere!!! Love you guys so much and would be so sad if I had to miss seeing you here in the US! Love from Texas…

    Posted 12 April 2010 at 17:38 |

    Bonjour L42! I just got them! Front row, standing! I can’t beleive it. It has finally come true. (My horoscope was right after all). I will be seeing Level 42 in New York City, this summer.
    All the best also on your North American tour this year.
    MERCI BEAUCOUP LEVEL 42! ( Mark, can I bring my camera to the show? )
    À bientot.Philou

    At Last!!!!

    I’ve waited twenty-five years to catch them here in the States.

    I still have my unused tickets I bought for the Jazz Cafe nearly ten years ago, but could not get the time off work to fly to the U.K. to see them.

    Looking forward to seeing them at the Grove in Anaheim, California.

  28. davidleslie
    Posted 12 April 2010 at 21:46 |

    OK ,I didn’t get front row but I’m all set for the Philly show and will try to talk the Mrs. into stopping in Pittsburg to catch the gig there on the way back home!

  29. davidleslie

    BTW Pittsburg on sale date is April 24
    $25 in Advance
    $30 day of show

    Posted 13 April 2010 at 18:17 |

    Hey David, Where did you find the on-sale date for The Altar? I’ve been searching the bar’s website and Ticketmaster to no avail. Does your source confirm whether The Altar is general admission or seated? Thanks.

  31. Moorand
    Posted 13 April 2010 at 21:54 |

    Please don’t forget the U.S.Midwest.
    (Milwaukee would be nice.)Thank You.

  32. davidleslie
    Posted 14 April 2010 at 16:06 |

    Hey Drumstix, I emailed Angela Fec who with the Alter Bar’s booking office and she replied with the on-sale date and time.

    Looking at some of their other shows and layout it looks to me that the Alter is going to be GA. That’s why I opted to road trip to Philly as that venue is seated and I’ve never been to that city.

    Angela’s email is (it’s also posted on the Alter Bar site) so you might want to check with her if they plan to seat or just leave it GA.


  33. drumstix
    Posted 14 April 2010 at 22:03 |

    Thanks, David. I e-mailed Angela the day the confirmed dates were posted here, and I just received a reply yesterday, but no answer on my GA question – we’ll have to wait for the Ticketmaster posting. I see the concert is now announced on the Altar’s calendar page.

    Enjoy the Phillie show, & hope you make it to the Altar!


  34. Maxx42
    Posted 14 April 2010 at 22:10 |

    Agree with Moorand,

    Milwaukee Summerfest is always a hit and L42 would be right at home performing by the lake.

    Maybe even on the Harley Davidson stage? If I remember hearing right Mark owns a Harley bike. Afterwords Mark and the band could take a tour of the Harley Davidson headquarters up the road.

    Hello Takács! :-)

    Thanks to pay attention to my comment. I put the link again.
    You know, I think it is one of the best Budapest image film. I like it and I hope others like too. :-)

    I hope, it is okay. So, please come to our place in Central-Eastern Europe. We are waiting you!

    (Szerintem lobbizhatnánk együtt ez ügyben.):-)

  36. Posted 16 April 2010 at 0:03 |

    Well, I did find an excuse: No gigs in Denmark!!! I’m confident that this will change sometime soon.

  37. Posted 16 April 2010 at 11:12 |

    I have waited a long time for this and am flying from San Francisco to NYC to meet my 2 brothers for the concerts in NYC and Philly and then when Level 42 hits San Francisco I’ll be there at the Regency…..probably crying..haha, I’ll be there any way…..;)

    Gonna work on a personal shirt too…for the three of us…

    Thanks, Mark and Mike….this is going to be a great year for my brother’s and I.

    Anyone else going to the Pittsburgh show??

  39. tess1972
    Posted 16 April 2010 at 19:06 |

    Okay…after careful consideration of my finances, I’m ditching my plans for UK and making as many shows possible here in the US! I’d be a fool not to! See all you Levelheads in Cali, VA, MD, etc…Dallas (hint, hint) ;) Love from Texas…

    At last!! I thought I would never have a chance to see Mark Live. I recently picked up playing bass a few years ago again and never realized how much i missed it. I can’t wait to see you finally brotha Just bought my tix for Belly Up venue and scheduled to buy tix tomorrow for the Grove show. If you planning on any other non-show apperances. a huge bass fan of your playing style as I too was also a drummer in my early days and would love to get some insight on your playing.

    Jazzed to hear you guys are comming back to the states!! Freakin Awesome!!
    Best Regards and safe journey…..

    Posted 19 April 2010 at 21:17 |

    I’ve just read that you are going to play again in Kiel, Germany. Saw you there at the Kiel Week last year – simply brilliant. So now I’m really looking forward to seeing you again.
    I have been a fan ever since a concert in Hamburg at the beginning of the 80s. :-D
    Will there be concerts in Denmark, too???

  46. davidleslie
    Posted 20 April 2010 at 17:23 |

    Posted 26 April 2010 at 20:17 |

  49. Peggy
    Posted 29 April 2010 at 2:27 |

    If there’s nothing coming to the Midwest, U.S.A., I’m going for a major road trip to Pittsburgh.

    Please tell me I’ll get to see Mx thump his bass the Chinese way!

  50. drumstix
    Posted 1 May 2010 at 4:07 |

    Hey Ollor, contact me at with the row number (letter) for your seats…I might be interested.

    Pennsylvania to California is a long way. Need to stop over in Texas (Dallas) for some good Mexican food, BBQ and drop some Brit-funk on us!

    Posted 13 May 2010 at 19:05 |


    Just get your tickets for the August 1 show at the Crown Theater in the Rio. My friend from Austin, TX is meeting this Iowan there!

    Check back here for possible forthcoming info on a post-concert get-together in Vegas…

  53. Posted 16 May 2010 at 12:20 |

    Mr.Mike Lindup,
    I have great expectations for your performance.

    Mr.Nathan King,
    I think you’re the cool “guitarman”. ;)

    Mr.Sean Freeman,
    I want to listen to your beautiful play …

    Mr.Pete Ray Biggin,
    I’m very looking forward to hear the “new sounds”.


    Mr.Mark King,
    I’m always adore you and your music.
    That I’m going to meet you is just like a dream.

    Posted 27 May 2010 at 16:13 |

    Hey Mark, You can’t pass us by in Canada.I was at 3 of the 4 shows in the Toronto area back in the 80’s. The last show you opened for Maddona, We left before she hit the stage. You were in a cast and not moving so well. Waited 20 plus years for you and the Band to make it back. See you in Toronto ???? V.O.

  55. drumstix
    Posted 28 May 2010 at 2:08 |

    Hey vocanada,

    Out of curiosity and for my own education, I know of:

    Massey Hall Summer ’86 (was there)
    CNE (w/ Madonna) Summer ’87 (passed on that one)
    Maple Leaf Gardens Fall ’87 (was there)

    but where was the fourth concert in Toronto?

    BTW, with the latest ‘more dates’ announcement, I’ve officially given up seeing the band in Toronto this year(!) but will still have the pleasure of going to 4 shows in the US!

  56. vocanada
    Posted 31 May 2010 at 16:57 |

    Hey Drumstix, The 4TH show was at The Circle in the Square in Kitchener. L42 were the headliners. Hoping they make here for show #5. VOCANADA.

  57. drumstix
    Posted 1 June 2010 at 18:08 |

    Thanks for the info, Vocanada. Was the Kitchener show on the ’86 World Machine tour or the ’87 RITF tour?

  58. vocanada
    Posted 4 June 2010 at 17:10 |

    Hey Drumstix, It was a long time ago. But I think it was the World Machine Tour .V.O.
