Jimmy Somerville, Belinda Carlisle, Howard Jones, Nik Kershaw, Carol Decker and Go West along with host Gary Davies and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will be performing sounds of all your 80s favourites live in arenas next year as part of 80s Classical.

These prestigious events follow a very special show as part of BBC Radio 2 Friday Night is Music Night featuring some of the line-up.

Imagine the most iconic songs of the 80s reworked into breath-taking new orchestral versions and performed live by the original artists. Expect hits such as ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’, ‘Heaven Is a Place on Earth’, ‘Things Can Only Get Better’, ‘China In your Hand’, ‘I Won’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me’, ‘We Close Our Eyes’ and many more!

The unforgettable night is hosted by Radio 2’s Gary Davies, who described it as, “an emotional spine-tingling experience. I can’t wait to bring it on tour.”

80s Classical will be bringing the most magical night full of joy, drama and simply the best music in the world.
