The duo, Marc Almond and Dave Ball, will take to the stage together for the first time in 15 years as they celebrate four decades since they formed.

Almond said: “With Soft Cell I always felt something was unfinished. This last ever final show will be the best ever ending. It will be a real statement and send off, and thank you to every fan.”
Ball added: “We live in very interesting times, and 2018 promises to be a very special year.”
Soft Cell formed in 1978 after Almond met Ball at Leeds Polytechnic and the duo caught the attention of a couple of record labels.
They last performed together in 2003.
