Rockin’ out and stompin’ it out! The Alarm’s Mike Peters is a two-time cancer survivor, who in 2007, 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.
In other news, after a highly-successful series of sold-out solo concerts at New York City’s Iridium this summer, Mike Peters will now take his powerful show on tour in North America in September. Peters will play venues as part of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Alarm’s iconic “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. Please see below for tour dates.
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 addition to his charity work with Love Hope Strength, the foundation he co-founded, Mike Peters continues to tour the globe with the music of The Alarm and will be announcing new endeavors in the very near future.
