TOTALLY 80s Starring Seven 80’s Superstars – MARTIKA, LIMAHL of KAJAGOOGOO, PAUL LEKAKIS, KATRINA (ex KATRINA & THE WAVES), STACEY Q Live in Concert Performing all their Biggest Hits. Joining them will be 2 of Australia’s own Countdown Favourites, WA WA NEE and REAL LIFE!
Whether it was her synth-dance songs or power ballads, there’s no doubting MARTIKA (USA) was a great singer. At TOTALLY 80s she will perform all of her biggest Australian hits including the #1 smash Love… thy Will Be Done (written by Prince no less), the almost #1 Toy Soldiers as well as I Feel The Earth Move and Martika’s Kitchen. This will be only the second time MARTIKA has toured Australia, the last time being 1991!
The original duotone spikey mullet man, LIMAHL (UK) was, oh, so much more than his legendary hair; the band he fronted KAJAGOOGOO were responsible for the brilliant pop classic Too Shy, which peaked at #6 on the Australian charts and was produced by DURAN DURAN’s Nick Rhodes. LIMAHL immediately found solo success after leaving KAJAGOOGOO with his smash hit Never Ending Story giving him another Top 10 hit here. This will be the first time LIMAHL of KAJAGOOGOO has ever toured Australia!
PAUL LEKAKIS (USA), the man who like a fine wine only gets better with age, had one of the biggest hits in 1987 with Boom Boom (Lets Go Back To My Room). This 80s dance-pop gem was an Australian phenomenon and stayed at #1 for 5 weeks! This will be the first time Paul has ever performed in Australia!
KATRINA (UK) ex KATRINA & THE WAVES had one of the biggest 80s hits with their power pop classic Walking on Sunshine reaching #4 here, it’s second highest chart position in the world only behind Canada. KATRINA was last here in 1987 as part of the Countdown Spectacular.
The Queen of retro / electro dance, STACEY Q (USA) stormed the Australian charts in 1986 with her debut single Two of Hearts reaching #8. Her follow up single We Connect was another great slice of hi-nrg dance music and reached #6 here. “Long live the 80s and Stacey Q” indeed!
WA WA NEE came of nowhere in 1986 and scored an Aussie #1 with their debut single Stimulation. They followed it up with 2 more Top 10 Australian Hits – Sugar Free and I Could Make You Love Me.
Of all the 80s Australian acts very few charted outside of Australia. REAL LIFE were the exception with their synth-pop new wave anthem Send Me An Angel reaching #6 in Australia as well as #1 in NZ, #1 in Germany, #18 Canada, #29 in the US to name a few! REAL LIFE will perform Send Me An Angel as well as their other Australian Top 10 hit, Catch Me I’m Falling.
