We’ll enjoy it again: Eurythmics are back for a fabulous money
Eurythmics are allegedly set to reunite for a world tour next year, after being offered a big-money deal by US promoters.
The 80s pop duo – consisting of Annie Lennox, 67, and Dave Stewart, 70 – recently put on an incredibly rare performance while inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and now a source has claimed even a brand new album isn’t ‘off the table’.
Music insiders have predicted a 40-date tour – which would mark their first time on the road in over 20 years – could gross an eye-watering £100million.
A source told The Mirror: ‘Eurythmics have been offered a huge amount to reform for a world tour.
‘Seeing them perform together again at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has really stirred the interests of promoters who are throwing money at the band to hit the road again.’Nothing is off the table, including a brand new studio album. It is very early days but everyone is excited to bring the project to life.’
A Eurythmics representative has been contacted for comment by MailOnline.
Dave previously admitted Annie ‘saved his life’ while speaking about their love affair, which lasted just three years during the late 1970s.
Dave opened up about the lasting impact Annie has had on his life while speaking to men’s wellness and lifestyle site mrfeelgood.com.
‘There have been moments actually where Annie has helped save my life,’ the English songwriter told the site.
‘When I met her, and other times when I’d been in the hospital and, out of the blue, she was there holding my feet while I was going in and out of consciousness,’ said the Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) hitmaker.
‘So there’s that stuff and the talking to each other, and the writing to each other, this is a constant thing.’
The former band member of The Tourists elaborated on the health issues his former lover, now 65, had helped him through.
‘I’d had a major operation on my lung. I was really skinny,’ said Stewart, 68.
‘Trying to have that hope and you think you’re falling down a well but clinging on because you saw a tiny bit of a ladder that said ‘hope’ on it, and then a bit more, and then climbing back out of the well again.’
Despite their relationship not working out, the split never affected Dave and Annie’s career, or their friendship.
‘Annie and I are the best of friends, and it has been 40 years,’ Dave revealed.’We talk, like just the other day, and we laugh and joke about things as well. We talk about things that happened in retrospect… things that were like a nightmare, but we can laugh about them.’
The couple never tied the knot with one another, but have been married three times apiece.
Lennox was wed to German Hare Krishna devotee Radha Raman, film and record producer Uri Fruchtmann and philanthropist Dr Mitch Besser.
Stewart married former Bananarama member Siobhan Fahey and Dutch photographer Anoushka Fisz, and had been previously married in the mid-1970s.
