During the concert on Saturday April 11th 2020 at the James Bridges Theatre, UCLA, Mike Peters will honour The Alarm’s late ‘80s trilogy of iconic albums, Eye Of The HurricaneElectric Folklore and Change, with performances of some of The Alarm’s most famous songs such as Rain In The Summertime (1987 – international Top 20 hit which was recently covered by both The Killers and also by Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan at The Alarm’s Cleveland, Ohio show last August) and Sold Me Down The River (1989 – a US No.1 Rock Song), alongside a host of Alarm standards such as Rescue MeStrength and Spirit of ’76 as captured on the 1988 live album ‘Electric Folklore’.

Thirty years ago, as Mike Peters undertook a creative songwriting journey through the heart of his home country – Wales – the Berlin Wall would fall and Europe and indeed, the rest of the world, would plunge into a period of enormous and seismic change. Caught in the middle of this political maelstrom, Mike Peters with his band The Alarm would record the albums ‘Eye of The Hurricane’ (1987), Electric Folklore (1988), and ‘Change’ (1989) each of which would, in their own way, capture the essence of these most turbulent times.

“I have always thought of these three albums as an Alarm trilogy”, says Mike. “A lot happened to the band and the world, during the writing and recording sessions from 1987-1990. As one decade bled into another, the themes of response and resolve to contend with uncertain times are running through the core of each and every album. Played together, these songs tell their own story and, with the tumultuous times Europe and the USA can expect to face in the coming months and years, are still as relevant today as when they were first written.”

The UCLA concert forms part of The Alarm’s USA Gathering Week 2020 and will feature a pre-show program giveaway and there will also be a post show album signing and photograph session with Mike Peters himself.

Each person attending the Hurricane of Change Concert at the James Bridges Theatre, will be given a replica Alarm Backstage Pass from 1988, which can be used to enhance the collectibility of The Alarm’s soon to be announced limited edition Record Store Day 2020 release scheduled for the following weekend on Saturday April 18th 2020.

Audience participation is also being encouraged for this show, with requests being taken for Alarm songs written and performed between 1981-1990 (The timeline of Hurricane of Change), and so everyone attending is asked to bring a sheet of paper (with their song request written on it), that can be held up during the third set in order to potentially have their request met by Mike Peters.

Mike Peters presents The Alarm – Hurricane of Change at UCLA promises to be a very special evening for US Alarm fans. The current British tour has almost completely SOLD OUT, and is already being talked about on social media as a must see’ and described as the “acoustic show of the year”.
