80s icons Eurythmics reunited on stage for rare live performance at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The influential synth-pop duo originally disbanded in 1990.

80s synth-pop icons Eurythmics treated fans to a rare on-stage live reunion to celebrate the band entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart were officially inducted into the 2022 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, joining fellow inductees Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Eminiem.

Despite originally disbanding in 1990, Eurythmics have come out of retirement several times over the years for special occaisions, and this certainly was one. 

To celebrate their induction, the duo performed a medley of three of their songs; Would I Lie To You?, Missionary Man and, of course, their influential 1983 smash hit Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).

Lennox and Stewart started releasing music as Eurythmics in 1981, and dropped eight studio albums together, three of which reached Number 1; Touch (1983), We Too Are One (1989) and The Greatest Hits (1991).

Following their dissolution, they released one final studio album, Peace, in 1999 that peaked at Number 4 on the Official Albums Chart. Despite Sweet Dreams being one of the most instantly recogniseable songs to emerge from the 1980s pop scene, the track never reached Number 1 in the UK - settling instead for Number 2.

Instead, the Eurythmics only UK chart-topper is actually 1986's There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart).

Outside of the group, Stewart became a writer and producer for acts such as Mick Jagger, while Lennox of course went on to forge an incredibly successful solo career that culminated in four Top 10 singles and two Number 1 albums.

Any chance of doing a chart of their best selling songs? Sweet dreams surely is over a million by now

OCC, 'There Must Be An Angel' was 1985 not 1986




i knew there'd be at least one mistake in the article but,aside from that,it's nice to see my all time favourite group get a feature.
