Dave Stewart wants to perform on stage with Eurythmics again, though he doesn't think the duo will release any new music

Dave Stewart wants to perform on stage with Eurythmics again.

The 65-year-old musician would love to reunite with chart-topping singer Annie Lennox to form the new wave band once again, but he says that he'd much rather head out on a tour to perform "big live shows", rather than get into a studio to record a new album.

He said: "If I have anything to do with it we should be definitely playing live. I've never officially broken up Eurythmics ... What people don't realise is that we were a live band, we toured and did big live shows."

The 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)' hitmaker then went on to praise 63-year-old Annie's unique voice, which he claimed is distinctive and "soulful".

Speaking on UK radio station BBC Radio 2, Dave said: "The thing with Annie's voice is that there is a tambour to it, there are loads of singers out there and millions of singing competitions but there are only a few singers who have a voice that has a tambour to it, and you go, 'That's Annie Lennox singing.' It's not just the voice, there's a soul to it."

Eurythmics - who were most popular during the 80s and 90s - haven't released an album since 1999, when they put out their ninth studio album 'Peace', but it looks like they won't be in a rush to put out their 10th any time soon.

The duo also haven't been out on a tour together since 1999's 'Peace' tour, which was their fifth tour as a band.

In February 2014, Annie and Dave reunited for a special performance at the 'The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles' show, which marked the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first performance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show'.

During the performance, they played a rendition of Beatles track 'The Fool on the Hill'.
