Calling all retro music fans! If you like 70s music, you’ll love The Solid Gold 70s Show at the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on Wednesday 13 July, it promises a night of unashamed appreciation for the decade that fashion forgot but music loved.
Reviving the golden age of pop, this brand-new stage show features a multi-talented cast performing Glamrock Greats, Disco Hits, Power Ballads and Party Anthems from Sweet, T Rex, Queen, Elton John, 10CC, David Essex, Suzi Quatro, David Cassidy, ELO, The Carpenters, Osmonds, Bay City Rollers, ABBA to name but a handful!
Backed by a band whose members have performed with Mike Oldfield, Asia and Ultravox, this production boasts a superb musical pedigree, says show producer Michael Taylor: “Take a step back to a time,” says Michael. “Back to when 7.30pm on a Thursday night could mean only one thing – TV’s tuned into BBC1 and families gathered together to watch Top of the Pops.”
Michael, whose other hit touring shows include the Magic of Motown and Thank You for the Music, says that Solid Gold 70s is the most fun production on his company’s 20-show roster.
He added: “If, like me you have fond memories of Pans People and Eurovision, Luke Skywalker and Saturday Night Fever, Danny and Sandy. . . Dastardly and Muttley, this is the show for you. With the cast bursting into the spotlight like an explosion-in-a-paintshop, we guarantee theatregoers the most colourful, top of the pops time.”
Audiences are invited to dress the part - platforms, flares, cat suits, tank tops and boob tubes. Air guitars are welcome and there is plenty of room for Choppers and Space Hoppers in the College Road car park!
