REVIEW: 80's Mania
The Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury
Excited fans of 80s music arrived at The Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury on Friday night ready for a dream tribute concert line up.
80s Mania was a sell out show which made for a fantastic party atmosphere. Many audience members had dressed for the decade in fingerless lace gloves and colourful neon leg warmers. You could also easily spot the Wham fans wearing the popular black and white Choose Life T-Shirts.
Frankie goes to Hollywood got the night off to a great start with Two Tribes and Relax and if that didn’t already have everyone up out of their seats they definitely were on their feet by the time Kim Wilde entertained them with Kids in America.
There was something for everyone at this show with performances from Depeche Mode, Soft Cell and Boy George.
Cyndi Lauper slowed things down with her beautiful rendition of Time after Time before bringing the party back with an audience favourite and every girl’s night out anthem Girl’s just want to have fun. The skilled dancers made full use of the stage with this energy filled number and you really felt like you were out having a fun time with them all.
The 80s hits kept on flowing with Spandau Ballet, Madness and girl trio Bananarama.
Every act was dressed in authentic 80s attire including the band which added to the fantastic lookalike and soundalike concert experience. We were treated to a great laser light show and 80s style choreographed dance routines with every entertaining performance.
Fans of the 80s movies got a treat with the Ghostbusters theme song performed in those well known jumpsuits complete with confetti filled proton packs.
The second half of the show was packed with even more 80s favourites from the likes of A-ha, Simple Minds, Tears for Fears and of course the Queen of Pop, Madonna who performed the iconic song ‘Like a Virgin’ in a wedding dress inspired outfit reminiscent of the famous music video.
This 80s music tribute show knows exactly who the audience loves to see and hear and the talented performers continued to encourage the audience to sing and dance throughout the show. Hits from The Human League and Duran Duran kept the atmosphere at its peak and when Wham arrived on stage the audience members who had made the extra effort to dress up were full of excitement.
Phil Oakey and all the performers in the show brought this fabulous tribute concert to a great close with the 80s classic Together in Electric Dreams.
If you missed out on tickets this time around 80s Mania will be returning again next year so make sure you don’t throw away those leg warmers just yet!
