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 South Wales. Spandau Ballet’s MARTIN KEMP is coming to town to play those 80s classic hits.

Last year Martin was here playing a couple of Fireworks and Christmas dates, and I can tell you, they were party highlights of the year. The good news is he returns with a date this month in Cardiff, then back to Swansea in November.

Alongside his famous role as bassist in the iconic new wave outfit Spandau Ballet who have sold millions of records worldwide, Martin is also a recognised TV personality. Most recently seen on Channel 4`s Goggle Box with his Capital Radio DJ son Roman + Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls, Martin and Roman’s Sunday morning TV show. Martin Kemp continues to have a truly distinguished career. He has also played lead roles in likes of The Krays and Eastenders plus Starring in Gary Barlow`s Let it Shine.

Looking ahead to the live shows, Martin told us……

 “This show will be a lot of fun and the ultimate return to the 80s. Music is everyone’s life soundtrack and transports us all to the best times of our lives – I think we all need that right now!… Expect one of the most euphoric nights you’ve had since the 80s.”

It’s been quite a couple of years for Martin and his wife Shirlie. They released their joint autobiography ‘It’s A Lover Story‘ which looked back over their 40 years of married life together. They also found themselves with a top twenty album recently with In The Swing Of It. This was definitely one of the biggest musical festive surprises. 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. YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO YOUNG.

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.

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.
