The Outfield frontman Tony Lewis has died ‘suddenly and unexpectedly’ at the age of 62.
The singer died on Monday evening at his home in London.
Tony’s team confirmed the sad news in a statement on Twitter, that read: ‘It is with great sadness and sorrow to announce that Tony Lewis has unexpectedly passed away.
‘He was a beautiful soul who touched so many lives with his love, his spirit, and his music.
‘He loved his fans dearly and enjoyed every opportunity he had when meeting all of you.’
It was accompanied with a black-and-white photo of the musician holding a bass guitar.
His cause of death is not known.
Lewis is survived by his wife Carol, who he has been married to for 35 years, daughters Gemma and Rosie, and three grandchildren.
Publicist Bari Lieberman added: ‘Tony Lewis’s legacy will live on forever through his beautiful family and his legendary music.
‘The family requests their privacy during this difficult time.’
The Outfield had particular prominence in the 1980s, with tracks including All The Love In The World, Your Love, and Say It Isn’t So.
Forming the band with pals Alan Jackman and guitarist Alan Spinks in 1984, the trio were particularly successful in the States, hitting number six in the Billboard 100 for Your Love.
Continuing to perform as a band for 30 years, Tony would later also release solo material, including an album in 2018.
