Mike Peters, lead singer and songwriter of internationally acclaimed Welsh band The Alarm embarked on a huge 30 date acoustic World Tour, celebrating 30 years of The Alarm’s distinctive Red Poppy.
The exploding Red Poppy made it’s iconic debut on the band’s ‘ Marching On ’ single (released via the IRS Record label back in 1982) and has featured in some shape or form on every Alarm release since.
The Red Poppy Tour began with an Independence day " Spirit Of ’76′" concert in New York on July 4th, which was followed by dates all across Europe (including concerts on the summits of both Snowdon and Ben Nevis – The Highest Gig in Britain on August 25th),
The tour will be closing at The Alarm’s legendary Gathering event in Peters’ hometown of Prestatyn, North Wales on January 25th 2013.
The Mike Peters "Red Poppy’" Tour will carry the life affirming spirit of The Alarm as epitomised in it’s flaming blood red poppy logo (which in itself is a symbol of both renewal and life) to music fans everywhere.
