NEWS: EASTWOOD PARK THEATRE HOSTS A ‘GOLD’ GIG FOR 80s MUSIC FANS

Eastwood Park Theatre will host a nostalgic night for fans of 80s music in Glasgow next month, featuring two of the UK’s most iconic bands from the era.

From Gold to Rio, celebrates the music of Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran and comes to the Giffnock theatre next month, on Saturday 7th September and is the show’s only Scottish date.

With over 20 top 10 hits, the show will feature 2 hours of non-stop, classics including Gold, Rio, True, Save A Prayer and Girls on Film performed by a full live band.

Anna Meldrum from Eastwood Park Theatre said: “From Gold to Rio will take you on a nostalgic journey back to the New Romantic era, which ruled the charts for over a decade.

“For the very first time the music from two of the UK’s most iconic bands will be celebrated in one power packed show and we can’t wait to host it for Glasgow fans.

“So if you’re a Duranie, a Spandy, a Wild Boy or a Soul Boy, then this is something you don’t want to miss.”

The live band has more than 30 years’ professional experience, featuring Lee James who is widely recognised as the most authentic performer to Tony Hadley, playing across the UK and Europe for over 10 years. Lee has performed with Tony on various occasions, including BBC’s The One Show and is endorsed by Gary Kemp and Tony himself.

Lee James said: “I’ve been fronting my own tribute to Spandau Ballet for almost 14 years. Over the years, I’ve asked the audience who they liked best, Spandau or Duran? On many occasions it’s been pretty much 50/50 but the biggest response was always when I asked if they secretly liked both bands.

“A few years ago, I met my business partner Andy Fox and I was looking for a drummer for my Spandau songs and mentioned the idea to form a Spandau and Duran Duran tribute. We got our heads together and after a lot of hard work, we started From Gold to Rio.”
