 To mark the 30th anniversary of anthemic rockers The Alarm’s Spirit Of ’86 concert that was beamed to the world via satellite (one of the first live satellite broadcasts ever) and played live on MTV, lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Peters will present The Alarm – Spirit Of ’86 on tour.

Formed in Wales in 1981 by lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Peters, The Alarm came to be known for uplifting songs, idealistic values and a powerhouse live show.  With such ubiquitous hits as “The Stand,” Sixty-Eight Guns,” “Strength” and more, The Alarm were staples on the radio worldwide in the 1980s.  In 2007, Peters, a now three-time cancer survivor himself, co-founded Love Hope Strength, the world’s leading rock and roll cancer foundation.  Inspired by the powerful words he had written decades earlier, the charity promotes innovative, music-related outreach and awareness programs for cancer sufferers and their families.  Since 2010, the Love Hope Strength foundation has been hosting donor drives at concerts and festivals across the globe and has registered upwards of 100,000 individuals to the International Bone Marrow Registry.  Through these registrations, to date the foundation has provided more than 1,800 life-saving matches.  For more information on Love Hope Strength, please visit
