Thomas Dolby Tickets for Sale

Thomas was born Thomas Morgan Robertson, on 14 October 1958 in Cairo, Egypt.
The ‘Dolby' moniker came from the name Dolby Laboratories, and was given to him by school friends due to his ostensibly undividable relationship with his cassette machine.
Although, his name is generally associated with Synthpop, his work envelops a wide variety of musical styles and moods, different from the high-energy pop sound of his few, better known commercial successes. His most popular number ‘She Blinded Me With Science' ironically is his least favorite. The single peaked at #5 on the U.S. Hot 100 and was featured briefly in the ‘Treehouse of Horror XIV' episode of The Simpsons. In the beginning of his illustrious career, he played keyboards with Bruce Woolley and the Camera Club. He composed Lene Lovich's hit single ‘New Toy' and co-composed ‘Magic's Wand' with Whodini. He was also part of Def Leppard's 1983 Pyromania album; he handled the duties of keyboard. In 1985, Dolby shared the Grammy Awards stage with Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, and Howard Jones. The same year, Dolby gave a scintillating performance at the Live Aid concert in London as part of David Bowie's band. Dolby continued to enthrall his audience with his live performances in the late 80s and early 90s. Dolby also backed the ‘Rose Bowl' concert of Depeche Mode in June 18, 1988. In 1990, he participated in the gigantic charity concert performance of Roger Waters's rock opera ‘The Wall in Berlin'. Dolby handled the keyboards with great élan in ‘Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)' and then played the Teacher's role in the series ‘The Trial'.

In 2006, after dabbling in various other projects, Dolby returned to his musical career and played a series of small dates in California. After more than two decades Dolby played his first solo public show at the Red Devil Lounge in San Francisco, California on January 21, 2006. After the well-accepted show, Dolby embarked on an American tour that was also well accepted. Dolby continues to tour enthusiastically and plans to release his studio album soon.
