The era which saw the rise of some of the world’s biggest artists including Michael Jackson, Madonna, Duran Duran, David Bowie, U2, George Michael and many more, for many people the 1980s is when music was at its very best.
A time before streaming services and social media, 30 years ago the only way people could listen to their favourite artist and tracks was to buy their records, listen to them on the radio or by watching the music channel MTV, which was formed in 1981, which played the videos of the world’s most popular songs.
Undoubtedly the most successful artist of the 80s was Michael Jackson. The King of Pop released his album Thriller in 1983 which went on to become the best-selling album of all time, heading straight to number one worldwide. Jackson also released nine number one singles in the decade and won numerous awards including being crowned ‘Artist of the Decade’ and ‘Artist of the Century.’
Madonna was the most successful female artist in the 80s, her album True Blue sold more copies than any other female singer and her singles Like a Virgin, Papa Don’t Preach and Like a Prayer also topped the global charts.
Here at Champions Music & Entertainment, we have a wide range of the 1980s themed entertainment available to book and have compiled a list of reasons why we think these acts are always worth hiring.
Whether you decide to hire an 80s tribute act or themed band, one of the biggest plus points about hiring 1980s entertainment is the nostalgia aspect which they can bring to their events.
