Formed in the late 1970s by Sheffield-based computer programmers Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware, The Human League evolved into one of the seminal '80s electro pop bands. Fronted by former hospital porter, Philip Oakey, and featuring Susan Ann Sulley and Joanne Catherall, the band went on to record some of the most influential songs of the decade.

'80s heartthrob Jason Donovan won nearly every Australian award during his time on Aussie soap Neighbours, and the hearts of millions. His vocal career began in 1988 when he released 'Especially for You' with Kylie Minogue and a debut solo album 'Ten Good Reasons'. Following the release of his second album in 1989, Jason became the biggest selling UK and European artist.
He kicked off a successful West End career in 1991 with a starring role as Joseph in 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' at the Palladium. He's since gone on to star in productions such as 'The Rocky Horror' UK Tour during the show's 25th anniversary and Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert', as well as coming third in the 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The brainchild of Martyn Ware and born from the collapse of the original Human League, 80's synth pioneers Heaven 17 have stood the test of time and been an influence on the future of modern music for over thirty years. Their debut 1981 album, 'Penthouse And Pavement', was, and remains, a modern classic. Glenn Gregory and Martyn continue to perform the hits from their overwhelming back catalogue, including 'Temptation' and '(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang', along with unveiling their first new material in 12 years.

After two decades on the music scene and fifteen albums under their belts, 'The Lions of Ladbroke Grove' remain one of the country's best loved reggae bands. Formed in the late seventies their early hits include "Warrior Charge" and "Three Babylon", which established the band with a massive following culminating in a UK number one hit "Don't Turn Around" in 1988. The band continued their assault on the UK pop charts with tracks such as "Shine", "Shy Guy", amongst many more.
Aswad tour dates
Originally from Romford, Essex, Five Star were dubbed 'Britain's answer to the Jackson 5', with their dynamic sound and fabulous dance routines. The darlings of the pop world in the mid-80s, Five Star rocked the British and US pop charts in the 80s, and scored a total of 16 top 40 singles, 6 of which went top ten, and achieved a multi-platinum selling UK No.1 album in 1986 with 'Silk & Steel'. A formidable live act in the 80s, they sold out 6 nights at Wembley Arena on their 1987 UK tour.
Five Star tour dates
Björn Again was created and founded in 1988 in Melbourne, Australia by Company Director and Bass Player Rod Stephen. The show, which is not labelled a 'tribute' or a 'copy' but seen as a band in its own right, rapidly achieved worldwide cult status, boasting over 4000 performances in 60 countries in 20 years. Recently endorsed by ABBA's Agnetha Fältskog, the ultimate aim for Rod is to keep his band at the top and continue for as long as people want to hear ABBA's songs performed the way Björn Again do them...hopefully for another 20 years!!
Björn Again tour dates
