Very few bands had the same suc­cess in the 1980s as Bana­narama.

The band fea­tured in the Guin­ness Book of World Records as the most suc­cess­ful fe­male band world­wide.

Four of their sin­gles hit the US top 10 and the ever-pop­u­lar Venus reach­ing No.1.

The per­form­ers from the UK will spend the next month tour­ing the coun­try, with one of their first shows at Rooty Hill.

Fans can ex­pect to hear all their favourite songs in­clud­ing Cruel Sum­mer, I heard a Ru­mour, Love In the First De­gree and, of course, Venus.

Join­ing Bana­narama is an­other big ’80s pop act, Wang Chung.

The band will play some of their most-loved hits, in­clud­ing Let’s Go, Dance Hall and Ev­ery­body Have Fun Tonight.

Round­ing off the line-up are Aus­tralia’s own ’80s girl group, The Chan­toozies.

This is one night of ’80s mu­sic that is sure to get fans up and mov­ing and re­liv­ing their glory days.
