Fresh off of Jingle Ball season, it’s clear that iHeartMedia knows how to throw a bash. In 2016, the landmark media company will have its first ever iHeart80s Party – and it’s sure to be totally ace.
Performances from Culture Club, Billy Idol, Rick Springfield, Missing Persons and Loverboy are already on tap. The event will take place at the Forum in Los Angeles on Feb. 20. There will also be collaborations and covers from a soon-to-be-announced lineup of today’s hottest artists.
“The ‘80s brought the United States our second British invasion which also inspired a new generation of American artists to create music that still resonates strong 30 years later,” said iHeartMedia Entertainment Enterprises President John Sykes. “This one night only event will bring some of the greatest songs ever written to fans who grew up with them as well as those who are just now discovering this era that changed our culture forever.”
Starting, Jan. 11, 2016, iHeartRadio will launch a six-week nationwide promotion to give thousands of ‘80s music fans across the country the opportunity to win a trip to Los Angeles to attend the event. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Dec. 18 at 10 a.m. PT.
Want to throw it back but can’t make it? Fans will also be able to listen live on iHeartMedia’s Mainstream AC, Hot AC, and Adult Hits radio stations across the country or on iHeartRadio.com. Streaming details will be announced soon.
