Tears for Fears memorabilia sold off in auction
Dozens of things 1980s pop band Tears for Fears could do without have sold for nearly £40,000.
The band, formed in Bath by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, were famous for songs including Shout, Sowing the Seeds of Love and Mad World.
The memorabilia and kit items - spread between 30 flight cases - were cleared from the garage of frontman Orzabal.
Auctioneer Luke Hobbs said the synths were the main attraction of the sale and went for between £2,100 and £5,500.
Other items included in the sale in Wiltshire were guitar amplifiers, pedal boards, VIP tour passes and even Roland Orzabal's Electro-Voice microphone.
The item sold are from the band's 1996 tour when Orzabal and Smith fell out and Orzabal kept the Tears for Fears name.
Mr Hobbs said: "We've never sold anything like this before. It's like a time capsule of a rock band's tour from over 20 years ago.
"It appears that once they completed their gigs back in 1996, all the equipment was put into storage - until now."
