Lost 80's LIVE!

Are you now totally in an 80's music mood?  The Show at Agua Caliente Spa Resort Casino is coming to the rescue August 19th with Lost 80's Live!

Step on the retro 80s train and take a trip back in time with the original artists who made this slice of musical history so memorable. For a decade, Tony Hadley was the voice and image of Spandau Ballet, guiding them to global success crooning a string of smash hits like “To Cut a Long Story Short, “True,” “Gold,” and “Through the Barricades.”

Twice Grammy nominated and 2.7 million albums sold, The Cutting Crew formed in England in 1985, just one year before “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” made them stars at home and across the Atlantic.

Wang Chung’s story begins in the late 1970s, when the creative core of Jack Hues and Nick Feldman first met in London, later finding success at home and abroad with hits like “Don’t Let Go” and “Dance Hall Days.”

The 80s have taken on an almost mythical place in pop culture, and at the vanguard remains Naked Eyes with hits like “Always Something There To Remind Me,” “Promises, Promises” and “When The Lights Go Out.”

When you think of the 80s it’s hard not to think of the smash dance club hits from The Flirts like “Danger,” “Jukebox” (Don’t Put Another Dime In),” from the iconic film, Valley Girl, and “(Bop Bop) on the Beach” from Karate Kid. Pretty Poison ruled the charts with their #1 platinum hit “Catch Me I’m Falling” on Virgin Records in 1987.

With a return to the stage, Jade Starling and long-time Pretty Poison partner and co-writer Whey Cooler have been having their best years yet. Wow!  Get more info!
