Tears for Fears at Bonnaroo

One of our favorite things about the Bonnaroo Music Festival is its old-timer performances, and one of the best ones this year was the 80’s rock band, Tears for Fears. This group played a remarkably strong set considering how long they’ve been doing it. They even had Lorde perform a cover of their hit song, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, and they played a lot of their popular classics. They also performed a cover of “Creep” by Radiohead, which was very well-done, and that is not an easy song to play. The band got its name, Tears for Fears, from the work of an American psychologist called Arthur Janov. Janov did a lot of research in the 1960’s in the area of trauma therapy, especially in helping patients resolve issues stemming from repressed childhood pain. Both of the musicians, Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, who comprise Tears for Fears were fascinated by this work. Their music is also a sort of meditation in healing processes. Their performance at Bonnaroo was definitely a nice little culmination of many forces in the universe, that the crowd was lucky to be part of.
