Dig out those leg warmers, grab your dancing shoes and prepare to enjoy a night of pure ‘Gold’ at the biggest 80’s party to ever hit Cardiff! Spandau Ballet’s MARTIN KEMP is coming to town to play those 80s classic hits. The date is rescheduled and is now set to be one massive Christmas Party.
Since his role in the global success of Spandau Ballet, Martin Kemp has gone on to have a truly distinguished career.
From playing lead roles in likes of The Krays and Eastenders and more recently starring on Channel 4`s Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls and now seen with his son Roman Kemp on Celebrity Gogglebox, it’s fair to say that he knows how to entertain.
Martin’s son Roman is now a DJ with Capital FM and of course runner up in I’m A Celebrity. He’s been married to Shirlie Holliman since 1988. Shirlie, of course, is best known for being a former backing singer of the group Wham!, and one half of the 1980s pop duo, Pepsi & Shirlie.
She retired from steady performing after the birth of her daughter. She met Martin through mutual friend George Michael, and the pair married in St Lucia. And as Roman revealed in ‘Celebrity’ George is actually his Godfather.
Martin and Shirlie have found themselves with a top twenty album recently with In The Swing Of It. This was definitely one of the biggest musical surprises over the festive period. They reimagined some classic songs and added the perfect husband and wife spin on them and the fact they have been together for over 40 years, made this extra special……
Here at SOUTH WALES LIFE we worked with Martin at an event at the Royal Bath & West Showground, this was at the peak of his Eastenders days. The crowd, as you can imagine, was massive, but we have to tell you, he is the nicest guy and from what we saw there, you’ll have a fantastic night. Here’s a little trip down Eastenders memory lane.
Join Martin as he trades his bass for the decks and spins the biggest and best hits from the 1980’s! Fancy dress is of course encouraged.
You can join MARTIN KEMP at the Tramshed on Clare Road in Cardiff on Sunday 27th December from 8pm for his Ultimate Back to the 80’s DJ Set! Tickets are between £19.04 and £21.28 and you can get them right here. MARTIN
