"It's like giving the best man speech at a wedding when the father's already stolen all of your gags. He's spent 2 years away from the business and I guess we're all guilty of the same thing. You know two years passes by very quickly when you're watching your children grow and there's lots of good stuff on the telly..... I need a drink. It's nice to play at a winery."
[Audience laughs.]
"Is anyone sober?"?
"Alright then we'll start the next song."
--Roland Orzabal before starting Raoul and the Kings of Spain.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Joking about going back to his "old" band."

At this show in Virgina last year Roland had made a joke about his old band. I had serious doubts that Roland and Curt would rejoin Graduate considering that they never got along with the other guys in the band. :)

"His Teeth "
Roland Orzabal used to have a very attractive overbite. At least I thought that his overbite was attractive.
Someone on You Tube told me that he must have had his teeth capped because I knew there was something that was different about Roland when I saw the Closest Thing To Heaven video in which he smiled at the camera and no overbite.
I didn't realize just how much I missed Rolly's overbite until I saw that one video.

"Out Of Nowhere Dance Sequences"
In the early days of Tears For Fears Roland Orzabal was known for performing these weird and out of nowhere dance sequences.

Even though he wasn't very good at dancing Roland was quite good at entertaining us.

"Thrusting His Pelvis."
Don't get me wrong! I absolutely adore Roland and I think he's a sweetheart but I wouldn't really call what he did back then "dancing!"

And today they get away with a lot more than what Roland is doing.
