Experience some of the most iconic songs of the 80s reworked into breath-taking orchestral versions and performed live by the original artists, as 80s Classical returns for a second year to its spiritual home at Leeds Millennium Square.
Featuring Jimmy Somerville, Belinda Carlisle, Go West, Carol Decker (T'Pau) and John Parr together with Opera North's 60-piece orchestra, this is hit after hit of pure 80s gold!
Iconic singer and political debater, Somerville is the man with the unmistakable voice who fronted Bronski Beat and The Communards in the 80s with such hits of 'Small Town Boy' and 'Don't Leave Me This Way'. He continues today as a solo artist producing new material, but still peforming the old classics.
