Fronted by the dapper Martin Fry, their debut album The Lexicon of Love, released in 1982, crashed straight into the charts at number one, showcasing a string of hits including “The Look of Love”, “Tears Are Not Enough”, “All Of My Heart” and “Poison Arrow”. After five further albums and a greatest hits compilation, ABC bowed out of the spotlight in the early nineties, only to resurrect the name at the end of the decade much to the delight of their fans. In the past few years, highlights for the group included performing their debut album “The Lexicon of Love” in its entirety to a sell-out audience at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, over a quarter of a decade since its debut release. In December 2012 the group returned to London to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of their debut, playing the album in its entirety alongside a selection of other material from across their career to another sell-out audience at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane; this time accompanied by the Southbank Sinfonia and conducted by Anne Dudley. Whether performing as a band or with an orchestra, Martin Fry is the consummate show man.
