The Alarm’s Sigma LXXXV Tour will stop by 40 North American cities with The Alarm presenting all their very best known songs, alongside tracks from their brand new Number 1 UK Rock album ∑ Sigma, which has just been released and generated a host of excellent reviews and chart positions.
∑ Sigma acts as a sequel to 2018’s critically acclaimed Equals release and features musical contributions from original Alarm guitarist Dave Sharp and Billy Duffy from The Cult.
Alarm fans attending the tour will also have the opportunity to enhance their participation by purchasing EXPERIENCE SIGMA TOUR PASSES which will feature additional and exclusive pre-show acoustic performances from lead singer Mike Peters, along with a Q&A, guaranteed Photo / Record signing session and a chance to catch up with exclusive tour products along with the artists most recent record releases in the tour ‘pop up record store’ and merchandise emporium.
“Each show will be presented by an in-house MC / DJ and play host to an intimate pre-show event that will connect fans to the musician in a setting away from the spotlight.” continues Mike Peters. “The Sigma Tour will look, sound and feel like no other. It’s an opportunity for our generations of fans, to make themselves heard, and for us as artists to prove that we are still as relevant as when we first helped shape the musical landscape of America, and when it’s citizens looked to British bands for inspiration and alternatives.”
Throughout the Sigma LXXXV Tour, members of all three bands will join together each night for a Grand Finale version of the ‘Love Hope Strength’ charity anthem to highlight the additional life-saving aspect of the tour.
Love Hope Strength is a charity dedicated to ‘Saving Lives One Concert at a Time’ and throughout the Sigma LXXXV Tour it will be hosting bone marrow drives at each concert aimed at finding donors for people suffering from Blood Cancer who need a transplant for a second chance at life! The charity has already registered over 200,000 individuals and located some 4,000 plus potentially lifesaving matches.
Love Hope Strength co-founder Mike Peters was recently honored with an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) Award by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The MBE is one of Britain’s highest honors. Mike was awarded for his services to charity having lived with the disease since 1995, campaigning to raise thousands for cancer care projects in the UK and abroad whilst dedicating his life to giving hope to families affected by cancer.
