Original Alarm band member Mike Peters.
He survived the hairspray damage of the ’80s. He survived the constant comparisons to U2. And on a more serious note, he survived a bout with throat cancer.
Mike Peters, the frontman who once belted out inspiring anthems like “68 Guns” and “Strength,” has been flying solo since the Alarm split in 1995. He’s released two solo albums, including his most recent, “Rise.” After completing a solo jaunt earliar this year, Peters put together the Alarm 2000 in celebration of the release of a greatest hits box set. And while none of the other Alarm members will be on tour with him, Peters will bust out all of the old favorites from his big-haired, cowboy boot-wearin’ days.
