Scottish pop rock heroes Texas, will make their long overdue HK debut with us on September 24 at KITEC Music Zone. With a slew of smash hits under their belt across their back catalogue, local fans will finally have the chance to see these global favourites live.

Inspired by the Wim Wenders classic , ‘Paris, Texas’ , the band were formed in Glasgow in 1987 by singer Sharleen Spiteri and bassist Johnny McElhone and had a global hit with their debut single, “ I Don’t Want A Lover’ in 1989, from the critically acclaimed record, ‘Southside’. In 1997, the band released “White on Blonde” which spawned the massive hits “Halo”, “Black Eyed Boy” and “Say What You Want” which they also memorably did a version of with Method Man from the Wu Tang Clan. In the following year, “The Hush” was released which featured the well renowned tracks “In Our Lifetime”, “Summer Son” and “When We Are Together.” In the decade that followed, the band released four more albums - including the popular 'Sleep' before coming back in 2012 with “The Conversation”. The lead track of the same name was a massive success around Europe.

To date, the band have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide in their thirty year career. Texas released their ninth studio album, Jump On Board in April 2017 to widespread critical acclaim and commercial success, the album debuting at number 10 in numerous countries and spawning the international hits ‘Let’s Work It Out’, and ‘ Tell That Girl’. The videos for these starred Thierry Henry and “The Hound” from Game of Thrones. The band recently completed a two year World Tour in 2018 and continue to wow beloved audiences the world over.

Having incredibly never played Hong Kong despite an ardent fanbase here, we are delighted to present the band in all their live glory this September.
