The synth pop duo are getting the band back together for their last ever gig.

Soft Cell are to reunite for one final show at London's O2 Arena in 2018.

The synth pop duo will celebrate their 40th anniversary - and say farewell to fans - with a gig at London's O2 Arena on September 30. The band have confirmed this will be their only and last ever show.

"With Soft Cell I always felt something was unfinished," singer Marc Almond said. This last ever final show will be the best ever ending. It will be a real statement and send off, and thank you to every fan...”

Dave Ball added: "We live in very interesting times, and 2018 promises to be a very special year”.

Soft Cell - comprising of Marc Almond and Dave Ball - notched up 12 Top 40 singles between 1981 - 2003 and released four successful studio albums, including their platinum selling debut Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret. 

Their debut single, Tainted Love, spent two weeks at Number 1, while tracks including Bedsitter, Say Hello Wave Goodbye and Torch reached the Top 10. Look back at Soft Cell's complete Official UK Chart history here.
