The 1980s were an incredible period in our history and, musically speaking, brought us some new categories and variations we hadn't heard before.

Music was highly creative, forward-looking and celebrated life, love and happiness.

Artists like Culture Club, Rick Astley, Wham!, ABC, Cindy Lauper, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Madonna, Whitney, Thompson Twins, Bananarama, Duran Duran, A-Ha and many more brought unlimited colour and energy to the party. MTV would launch in 1981 and would forever change the way we consumed music. Bands and artists had to learn this new way to present themselves in this new visual medium.

80s Live takes the audience back to that fabulous decade. Entering the Adelphi is like stepping into a time machine.  Fancy dress is encouraged, as dancing and singing along (it would be impossible not to, anyway). The singers - Sid Sims, Bryan Humphrey, Wayne Smith, Karin Latham. Rachel Johnson - and the band - David Waller (Drums), Stuart Darling (Keys), Rory Padfield (Guitar) - perform more than 20 iconic songs like “Venus”, “Take on Me”, “It's raining men”, “Like a Virgin”, “Tainted love”, “Video killed the Radio star”. The five vocalists all have a great stage presence and interact with the audience, encouraging participation. Not a difficult task: the songs will get you up and dancing from the beginning to the end.

Whether you were experiencing those tracks the first time around, born or just recently discovered this decade, the fun is guaranteed.

The 1980s were a time of great pop culture including some of the best movies, music, TV shows, and toys of all time. It is the decade most often associated with nostalgia and the style, and memories of the decade, continue to live on. Especially on nights like this.
