This time in 2011, we were gearing up for the ‘Here and Now’ Concert, readying ourselves for Boy George and Belinda Carlisle to name a few to rock the stage. The concert was a huge success, and it was clear that the eighties is anything but in the past for lots of people in the region.
In March this year, we are bringing the eighties back with a bang! With a brand new line-up featuring five stars of the eighties coming together for a night that no one will forget Here and Now’ was held at the Meydan Racecourse, and despite it being a great venue, we wanted to be bigger and better this year. We are now based in Festival Park, Festival City, home of the Emirates Dubai International Jazz Festival. The venue is right next to Al Badia Golf Course, and the perfect place for a night dancing away to your favourite eighties hits! Boy George and Belinda Carlisle were two of the artists that wowed the crowds at Meydan in 2011, and they were joined by Paul Young, Curiosity killed the Cat, and Kid Creole and the Coconuts to produce a star studded line-up.
This year we have a new name ‘80s Rewind’ and we are bringing back more of your favourites to the stage for another amazing evening. We are bringing eighties icon Rick Astley to headline the event, singing many of his number one hits, including the infamous, ‘Never gonna give you up’. As well as Rick, we have ABC and Heaven 17, two incredible eighties bands with hits that will have everyone singing along. If that wasn’t enough we also have Howard Jones, and Carole Decker from T’Pau, famous for their song ‘China in your hand’. To end an amazing evening, we will be having the best school disco in town for those people who just can’t get enough!
The event is happening on Friday 1st March 2013, at Festival City.
Doors open at 6pm with a happy hour for the first two hours, and show starts at 8pm.
