The Line Up
An unrivaled, unforgettable Christmas party night of pure 80s classics, be transported back to the decade when shoulder pads were big and hair styles even bigger!
Sounds from the 80's is the ultimate feel good concert with live performances by some of the biggest names in 80's pop all hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Gary Davies.
‘Ooh Gary Davies’ will take the audience back to the 80s with a diverse mix of classic pop, dance, rock and hip-hop plus lots of forgotten gems! There will also be two incredible performances from 80s legends Nik Kershaw and T’Pau.
Nik Kershaw is the man behind some of Britain’s most iconic songs including ‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’, ‘The Riddle’, ‘Wide Boy’ and ‘I Won’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me’. Nik shot to fame in the 80s as one of pop’s biggest stars spending 62 weeks in the charts during 1984 and 1985 alone. Nik has never stopped recording, writing and performing with work spanning over nearly four decades with 9 albums and 5 top ten hits.
T’Pau became one of the most successful and biggest selling bands of the 1980s with huge hits like ‘China In Your Hand’, ‘Heart and Soul’ and ‘Valentine’. Led by flame-haired singer Carol Decker, they rode the crest of a wave, also enjoying a quadruple platinum number one hit with their debut album, ‘Bridge Of Spies’. The album produced a string of worldwide hits, which saw ‘Heart & Soul’, staying on the U.S billboard chart for 6 months, peaking at No 4, & of course most notably ‘China In Your Hand’, which occupied the No1 slot in the UK for 5 weeks.
So dust off your leg warmers, crimp those ponytails and get ready to enjoy an evening of nonstop 80s at Arena MK.
