iHEARTMEDIA is creating a live event featuring acts from the 1980s. The "iHEART80S PARTY" at the FORUM in INGLEWOOD, CA on FEBRUARY 20th will be headlined by CULTURE CLUB, BILLY IDOL, MISSING PERSONS, RICK SPRINGFIELD, and LOVERBOY, with current acts to be announced as "collaborators" performing with the classic acts and covering 80s hits.
"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."
"From music to fashion to the birth of the millennial generation, the '80s are back and hotter than ever," said iHEARTMEDIA President of National Programming Platforms TOM POLEMAN. "It is the perfect time to recapture the carefree, 'work hard, play harder' attitude of the '80s with an incredible night bringing together the past and the present of music."
iHEARTMEDIA AC, Hot AC, Top 40, and Classic Hits stations nationwide will launch a six-week promotional campaign on JANUARY 11th, with a contest to win a trip to LOS ANGELES to see the show.
