Chance to win tickets to watch Icons of the 80s in Castle concert

A star-studded line-up of 80s icons will be appearing in the county next month – and we have a pair of tickets to be won.


Spalding-based Live Promotions are staging an Icons of the 80s night at Lincoln Castle on Saturday, August 12, featuring the likes of Go West, Tony Hadley and T’Pau.


This year marks the 30th anniversary of Go West having their first hit single ‘We Close Our Eyes’. Other hits followed including ‘Call Me’, ‘Goodbye Girl’ and ‘Don’t Look Down’, ‘Faithful’ and the smash hit theme song in the film Pretty Woman ‘King of Wishful Thinking’.


As former lead singer of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley has, over the years, earned the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists.


In addition to all the band’s songs, many will remember his prominent vocal contribution to the Band Aid UK charity single ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ and subsequent 1985 London appearance at Live Aid.


T’Pau’s first single ‘Heart and Soul’ was released in 1987 and initially found success in the US after being featured in a Pepe Jeans commercial, before charting in the UK.


Their biggest hit ‘China in Your Hand’ hit the top spot in the UK later that year and stayed at number one for five weeks.
Tickets are priced at £39.50 for the event which starts at 6pm.


To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets just tell us which band Tony Hadley was the former lead singer of?
