Further reviews of the Soft Cell show at the O2 Arena have been published across various media. Here are some of our favourites:

Completely joyous, uplifting and utterly gobsmacking show. The Times

In their merging of krautrock, Berlin-era Bowie and formative electropop with Weimar cabaret and operatic touches, you could hear the roots of late-Eighties Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys and rave culture. Almond's portraits of suburban desperation and mental decay were visceral and relevant too. The Telegraph

A swansong full of sex, noise and darkness. If this is Soft Cell's grand finale, it's hard to think of a more fittingly strange way to bow out. There's something bracingly weird about hearing 20,000 people screaming along to its lyrics about sexual degradation. If this is Soft Cell's grand finale, it's hard to think of a more fittingly strange way to bow out. The Guardian

It was occasionally a shambles, and there was sleaze but there was beauty and feeling too – and as an encapsulation, that feels like an accurate on. The Mail On Sunday

A memorable finale to their career. In an age when decadence is defined by Frappuccino houses and dessert restaurants, followed by the ritualistic penance of obsessive body-shaping at the gym, we need a dose of Soft Cell. Warts and all. Better this, a climax, rather than flogging it further. Yes, it has been a blast. Farewell. The Arts Desk

If Soft Cell's O2 Arena show really was Marc Almond and Dave Bell saying hello and waving goodbye then they couldn't have done it bigger or better. The whole of The O2 joining in - and farewells don't come more barmy or brilliant than having 20,000 people singing about sex dwarves luring disco dollies to a life of vice. Attitude

With an uncompromising set, seminal electronic band Soft Cell covered every facet of their 40 year career as they bid farewell to playing live. Finally, inevitably, it's time for 'Say Hello, Wave Goodbye'; pink flamingos, showers of glitter and perhaps the finest pop song ever written about the emotional compromises we have to make to stay sane. Nothing else here tonight smacks of compromise though - Soft Cell stayed true to themselves. Gigwise

A triumph - one of the concerts of the decade. It will inevitable become one of the legendary shows that slips into myth, and that parents will tell their children they were there. Metro

Classic nocturnal pop duo turn huge swansong into a celebration'. Frontman Marc Almond was in excellent form. He sustained a two and a half hour set, without a break, pitch perfect, a likeable and relaxed showman throughout. Marc, ever the perfectionist, had his heart on his sleeve and the audience in the palm of his hand. Louder Than War

A triumphant tribute to a courageous career: Soft Cell's final farewell, Live in London. What's equally as impressive is how they manage to captivate a sold-out O2 with a set which is as confrontational as it is crowd pleasing. It's an emotionally charged and appropriately dramatic way to see out this triumphant closing chapter. The Line Of Best Fit
