CENTRESTAGE will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the year 1984, as they present 80 favourite ‘80s hits in The Real ‘80s Dance Party at Old Grey from tomorrow, June 6 to Saturday, June 8.

Featuring Gino Fabbri, Wayne Kallis, Tara-Jane Stern, Thuba Myeki and James Smith, the show challenges audiences to ‘Party like it’s 1985’.

It features music specially chosen to take audiences back to their youth to the days they celebrated at Lillies, Faces, Village Green, Strawberry Fields, Limelight and the clubs of the then Port Elizabeth ‘80s scene.

This is a whole new tack for Centrestage, as instead of the usual 35 songs featured over the course of the evening, they will cast aside the tiresome ‘80s clichés in favour of the songs you loved at that time, and they promise to keep the non-stop ‘80s party going by performing 80 songs within three hours.

The 80s icons featured include the likes of Alphaville, Billy Idol, Blondie, Bronski Beat, Corey Hart, Dead or Alive, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Eurythmics, FR David, Falco, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Howard Jones, Huey Lewis and the News, Kim Wilde, Nick Kershaw, Prince, Soft Cell, Styx, Talking Heads, Tears for Fears, The Cure, The Thompson Twins, ‘Til Tuesday, UB40, Wang Chung and Yazoo.

Songs such as Big in Japan, Tarzan Boy, Cruel Summer, Words, Midnight Man, Like to Get to Know You Well, Too Shy, Male Stripper, Major Tom, Never Gonna Give You Up, Safety Dance, Voices Carry and Underneath the Radar will also be included in the mix.

Seats at tables cost R140 to R160 for eight or more, whilst dance floor tickets are available at R120 to R140 for eight. Bookings can be done through Wendy on 082 661 6921.

Beef and chicken burgers with chips, lasagna with ciabata or butter chicken curry and rice will be available on the Old Grey menu from 18:00 till 22:00 at R70.
