Corey Hart surrenders to COVID-19 for a second time
June 27th, 2022 under Corey Hart, Coronavirus. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, we finally found out what happened to Corey Hart after he went missing in 1986. The singer, along with The Go-Go’s and Soft Cell, were slated to play Dorito’s Music Fest ’86, but they never made it. They were last seen in Hawkins, Indiana. With all the Stranger Things that happened there, we thought they were gone forever. They were not. And we finally got to see their concert and hear Hart sing two of his biggest hits, Sunglasses At Night and Never Surrender.

That was the good news. However, it hasn’t been all good news for the Boy in the Box because now he is a boy in the box in quarantine.

“Last week I tested positive for Covid-19 in Spain,” Hart wrote, “My first Omicron tango @ 01/05/22 was relatively easy but this latest variant is nasty & heavy footed – 😞 As we all continue trekking through a deeply divided universe – playing music somehow always makes my heart feel a little brighter. #InYourSoul Godspeed.”

Hopefully, Hart will be better soon. I mean, he was finally released from the Upside Down World, and I have wanted to see him perform live for decades. Now is my chance, unless COVID-19 is as evil as Vecna.

Oh, and I posted this because I wanted y’all to watch his performance from the Dorito’s special concert! So watch it, or I will tell Vecna on you.


Corey Hart reworks Never Surrender for today’s world

Back in 1985, Corey Hart was hot off the success of his #1 hit Sunglasses At Night, and he recorded the followup hit Never Surrender. A lot has happened to him and the World since then, so he decided to give the pop ballad a soulful modern update.

He explained why he chose to do this. “Aspirational dreams of youth coupled with naive, unaffected simplicity led me to write a song called ‘Never Surrender’ some 35 years ago.

“Today as I gaze out onto the uncertain sea of change, I’m reminded of the kind, resilient people in our world who keep moving forward with steely determination and steady stride – that yes indeed, ‘just a little more time is all we’re asking for’.”

Since he is a little older, his voice has also matured over time, giving it more of a raspy sound. That makes the single even more haunting and beautiful.


An ’80s girl’s wet dream, Corey Hart and Paul Young!

Back in the ’80s, girls were singing Corey Hart’s Never Surrender and Paul Young’s Everytime You Go Away. However, they never performed on the stage together. That is until now.

Yesterday while both of them were in Tokyo, they became Young at Hart during the It Ain’t Enough singer’s concert. Much to the delight of their fans who could not get enough of the two singers.

You know what? They look so good together (and separately), I think they should iron out the rough spots and consider going on tour together as Young at Hart. I know I am not the girl who would wear their sunglasses at night to see them live on one stage.


Corey Hart still wears his sunglasses at night!

It has been 35 years since Corey Hart recorded Sunglasses at Night and not much has changed for the singer. Well, he got married, had four kids, took some time off to raise them and now he is finally ready to hit the road again to promote his new music. Starting on his birthday, May 31st, he will be touring his home country Canada. If his concerts are as good as he looks in the above photo, then his fans are in for a show of a lifetime. I just wish he would cross the border and play American. I have been waiting a long time to see him live and it is all about me.


Corey Hart explains why he is not charging for VIP Meet & Greets
March 29th, 2019 under Corey Hart. [ Comments: none ]

Corey Hart is going on tour again, this summer, for the first time in a really long time and things have changed since the last time he was on the road. Now, artists offer meet & greets and they cost the fans hundreds of dollars extra for the opportunity. Something the Sunglasses at Night singer does not agree with. Therefore, he took to Facebook to explain why he will not be doing it like they do.

Many of you have been asking about a VIP package for my upcoming Canadian Tour -Thanks for the enthusiasm.
Ive given the matter serious reflection & I keep coming back to the same conclusion.
I just dont feel comfortable charging fans $ in order for them to meet n greet.
Theres something kinda perverse about the entire concept –
It disproportionately favors the wealthy & ultimately leaves the majority of my fans sitting on the curb. Not what music is about – concert ticket prices are expensive enough.
I understand it has become normalized in the business & Im not casting aspersions on artists who do it – (live & let live) – but it just don’t sit right with me anymore.
I will offer various CH VIP opportunities over the coming weeks whereby ALL you need re eligibility is to own a pair (2) of tickets to any of the 16 shows on my Never Surrender tour. Thats it! – The rest will be up to the universe

I wish more artists considered their fans’ wallets when they asked us to pay even more money than we are already paying. Who can afford concerts anymore, let alone the VIP experience?

This just makes me love Corey Hart even more than I already do. I would love him even more if he came to America with his tour.
