80s Rewind is coming to Dubai on Friday 1st March 2013 with a fantastic new line up of 80’s artists playing together for the first time in Dubai, including Rick Astley, A.B.C, Heaven 17, Howard Jones and T’Pau in one incredible night.
GEM has previously brought to Dubai the successful ‘Here and Now: Best of the 80’s concert at Meydan last year with the unprecedented line-up of Boy George, Belinda Carlisle, Paul Young, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Curiosity Killed the Cat and The Real Thing.
80s Rewind 2013 will feature eighties icon Rick Astley playing the event, singing many of his number one hits, including the infamous, ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, ‘Together Forever’ and ‘Whenever You Need Somebody’. As well as Rick, we have ABC and Heaven 17, two incredible eighties bands with still cherished hits including ABC’s iconic ‘The Look of Love’ and ‘Poison Arrow’ and Heaven 17’s dance classic ‘Temptation’
‘’Following on from the success of our last 80s event, we are just about to announce a dream team of 80s stars with dozens of smash hits between them. It is the first time music lovers in the Middle East will be able to see this amazing line up of much loved performers who have all reached iconic status amongst people of all ages and cultural backgrounds.’’
With a new venue partner at Festival Park, Festival City, 80s Rewind will take up where the Jazz Festival leaves off, bringing UAE residents a night of 80’s Heaven and non-stop hits. Additionally ARN will be supporting this event with a fantastic campaign of coverage, competitions and interviews leading up the night.
