Ask your dad for his favourite jacket from before you were born and head down to the Chelsea Heights Hotel on May 24 for the Absolutely 80s show. Then, don the shoulder pads and lather on the hair gel as Australian 80s pop legends deliver a jam-packed 2hr show full of their hit songs.

This great night of nostalgia will first feature Brian Mannix with Uncanny Xmen who formed in 1981 and supported acts such as Cold Chisel and Rod Stewart.  Also on show, Scott Carne from Kids In The Kitchen, who enjoyed considerable success during the 1980s showing influences of “New-Rom” groups such as Ultravox with the tendency of front man Scott Carne to pronounce words such as “too” and “do” as if these had two syllables.

People will remember Dale Ryder and Boom Crash Opera being a powerful live act and having a string of hit singles in the 80s and 90s as well as David Sterry and Real Life with their hit record Send Me An Angel. The venue has also saved a date on May 30 for Australian band Angels touring for their 40th Anniversary. After four decades of hits the band are hitting the road for an extensive Australian tour so make sure you get down to at least one of these great gigs.

It all happens in May at Chelsea Heights Hotel, cnr Springvale Rd & Wells Rd in Chelsea Heights. Tickets from Ticketmaster or the venue.
