TOTALLY 80s Starring seven international 80s Superstars – MARTIKA,  BERLIN,  LIMAHL of KAJAGOOGOO,  PAUL LEKAKIS, KATRINA (ex KATRINA & THE WAVES), MEN WITHOUT HATS, STACEY Q live in concert performing all their biggest hits. Joining them will be two of Australia’s own Countdown Favourites, WA WA NEE and REAL LIFE!


Whether it was her synth-dance songs or power ballads, there’s no doubting MARTIKA (USA) was a great singer. At TOTALLY 80s she will perform all of her biggest Australian hits including the #1 smash ‘Love…thy Will Be Done’ (written by Prince no less), the almost #1 ‘Toy Soldiers’ as well as ‘I Feel The Earth Move’ and ‘Martika’s Kitchen’. This will be only the second time MARTIKA has toured Australia, the last time being 1991!

Led by Terri Nunn, synth-pop/new wavers BERLIN (USA) will take you back in time to that steamy scene from Top Gun when they perform their Australian #1 ‘Take My Breath Away’ (writer Giorgio Moroder said that he is most proud of this song, of all the other hits he has had). Plus their other fantastic Top 40 Hits, including ‘No More Words’, ‘Dancing in Berlin’ as well as the seminal, ‘Metro’ (which has been covered by everyone from System of a Down to Alkaline Trio). This will be BERLIN’s first tour of Australia since 1984!

The original duotone spikey mullet man, LIMAHL (UK) was, oh, so much more than his legendary hair; the band he fronted KAJAGOOGOO were responsible for the brilliant pop classic ‘Too Shy’, which peaked at #6 on the Australian charts and was produced by DURAN DURAN’s Nick Rhodes. LIMAHL immediately found solo success after leaving KAJAGOOGOO with his smash hit ‘Never Ending Story’ giving him another Top 10 hit here. This will be the first time LIMAHL of KAJAGOOGOO has ever toured Australia!
PAUL LEKAKIS (USA), the man who like a fine wine only gets better with age, had one of the biggest hits in 1987 with ‘Boom Boom’ (Lets Go Back To My Room). This 80s dance-pop gem was an Australian phenomenon and stayed at #1 for five weeks! This will be the first time Paul has ever performed in Australia!

KATRINA (UK) ex KATRINA & THE WAVES had one of the biggest 80s hits with their power pop classic Walking on Sunshine reaching #4 here, it’s second highest chart position in the world only behind Canada. KATRINA was last here in 1987 as part of the Countdown Spectacular.

One of the most memorable videos from the 80s was for Canada’s, MEN WITHOUT HATS for their mega synth-pop hit Safety Dance. Safety Dance has stood the test of time and remains one of the quintessential 80s songs that always makes you smile! This will be the first time MEN WITHOUT HATS have ever performed live in Australia!

The Queen of retro/electro dance, STACEY Q (USA) stormed the Australian charts in 1986 with her debut single ‘Two of Hearts’ reaching #8. Her follow up single ‘We Connect’ was another great slice of hi-nrg dance music and reached #6 here. “Long live the 80s and Stacey Q” indeed!

WA WA NEE came out of nowhere in 1986 and scored an Aussie #1 with their debut single ‘Stimulation’. They followed it up with two more Top 10 Australian Hits – Sugar Free and ‘I Could Make You Love Me’.

Of all the 80s Australian acts very few charted outside of Australia. REAL LIFE were the exception with their synth-pop new wave anthem ‘Send Me An Angel’ reaching #6 in Australia as well as #1 in NZ, #1 in Germany, #18 Canada, #29 in the US to name a few! REAL LIFE will perform ‘Send Me An Angel’ as well as their other Australian Top 10 hit, ‘Catch Me I’m Falling’.

What a lineup! What a night! So many 80s classic songs all performed live by the original artists!

TOTALLY 80s will be a night to re-live some of the decade’s biggest smash hits, (safety) dance moves and musical memories. Do yourself a favour and get your tickets now!
