If you’re of a certain vintage like me then you’re about to get a massive nostalgia rush in the form of Boom Boom Live at Es Paradis which opens tonight and then every Thursday until 12 September.
We all know that the 80’s was the very best decade with big hair, questionable fashions, plastic jewelry and black eye-liner and that was just the boys but it also had some amazing artists performing iconic songs that were the soundtrack for a generation.
The artists confirmed for this night will take you right back to snogging your school sweetheart at the local disco in front of all your friends and feeling like the cat that got the cream.
You can’t criticize Alexander O’Neal and Leee John will leave nothing to the imagination. Let’s see if Snap still have the power to please and if Pat Sharp still has that famous mullet. The Sugar Hill Gang are sure to be a delight and Baby D is everyone’s fantasy. You’ll definitely want to stay another day with East 17 and turn around to Aswad. Make sure you don’t close your eyes for Go West and be sure to show some love for Robin S. Jazzie B from Soul to Soul will be coming back to life and Alison Limerick is still looking for where the love lies (we all know that’s in San Antonio btw). It’s true that Tony Hadley is pure gold and Curiosity Killed the Cat will try to bring you back down to earth after this amazing trip down memory lane.
As you can see the decade of cheese is well and truly back and just like the 80’s it’s all about throwing off your inhibitions and having some good old fashioned fun something today’s VIP wannabes are sadly lacking.
