The world’s best-selling compilation album series is heading to Edinburgh on its very own live show tour, transporting the hits of one of the most pop-tastic decades to the Usher Hall this November.
NOW That’s What I Call The 80s LIVE celebrates all that is great about the decade that saw household names rise to prominence featuring the giant hits of Whitney Houston, Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, Wham!, Madonna, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Billy Joel to name but a few.
Not just for fans who grew up singing, dancing and partying to the hits, but also for those who have since discovered the classic 80s magic, this live concert of throwback fun reimagines the most iconic tracks back-to-back with a power house live show band and sensational singers performing era-defining hits including: Relax, Uptown Girl, It’s Raining Men, Gold, Purple Rain, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Living On a Prayer, Come On Eileen, Africa, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, (I’ve Had) the Time of My Life, The Final Countdown and many more.
NOW That’s What I Call Music compilations have stood the test of time. The founding NOW album launched on the 28th November 1983 and over 100 albums later, NOW That’s What I Call Music is a staple in every British household and has a continued reputation for including the most celebrated tracks of the time.
NOW That’s What I Call The 80s is the first compilation album that will get the live treatment – a collaboration between NOW That’s What I Call Music and concert producers Raymond Gubbay Ltd.
Peter Duckworth, Managing Director NOW Music, said: “Everyone remembers their first NOW, so many fantastic memories have been soundtracked by the albums: from nights out to family parties, to holidays and car singalongs.
“After over 100 compilations and a brand new NOW app we felt it is the right time to bring NOW into the live events stratosphere and give the fans even more NOW music moments.
“The Eighties in particular has such a resonance, there are so many timeless classics and it was the decade that inspired NOW. Today not only do we put tickets on sale but we release a brand new album NOW 102 and re-release the incredible 80s album NOW 2.”
