I'm discovering Southampton along with you!
Dust off your shoulder pads and pull out your fluro because the Portsmouth Guildhall will be stepping back to the 80s for a nostalgic night of music. Three 80s legends, Go West, Nik Kershaw and Cutting Crew are getting together to play all of their best 80s hits. Catch Icons of the 80s at the Portsmouth Guildhall on January 19th at 7pm.

Go West broke onto the charts in 1985 with their single, We Close Our Eyes. The dance-pop duo were loved for both their music and their jawlines. Other popular hits include Call Me, Don't Look Down, Faithful and Goodbye Girl. Their song, King of Wishful Thinking, is also best known for featuring on the 1990 Pretty Woman soundtrack.

Nick Kershaw also made plenty of teens swoon with his big hair and his chiselled jaw. Kershaw had hits like Wouldn't It Be Good, Dancing Girls, and I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, but he's also a songwriter and has penned tunes for many other singers.

The final act on the lineup is Cutting Crew, whose song (I Just) Died In Your Arms is just as powerful today. There have been a few band member changes over the years, but their 80s tunes are still just as great.

Their hair may be a little shorter these days, and the outfits a little safer, but the music is exactly how you remember it. Relive all your old favourites and party like it's the 1980s.

Tickets start at £29.50, with prices varying depending on your seats. Booking fees do apply. You can purchase tickets online from the Portsmouth Guildhall website. The Portsmouth Guildhall is about a 20 mile drive from Southampton.
