There are plenty of successful retrospective music shows currently on the road, but none that really concentrate on the 80’s and its distinctive musical and cultural impact on society as a whole. The Big 80’s live is a docu-concert that captures the memories of the 80’s by highlighting its most significant events, news, trends, and of course the music. Show features include live music, video, narrative storytelling with historical context, and crowd interaction. Imagine a Multi-media adaptation of CNN’s docuseries The 80’s that features a diverse live soundtrack covering all styles and delivered as a fun/high energy concert.
Who better to guide the audience through the decade than two of the most well-known figures from the 80’s, former MTV VJs and current Sirius XM DJs, Mark Goodman and Alan Hunter. These two had an unmatched access to the 80s and will share their unique perspectives, stories, and the decade’s historical context through pre-recorded narrative pieces woven between 25-30 of the 80’s greatest songs.
