Saturday 22nd December
Stepback 80s is back and this time it’s Christmas!
The Stepback 80s Christmas Concert is coming to the Ricoh Arena’s Ericsson Indoor Arena on Saturday 22nd December, which will see Tony Hadley, Bonnie Tyler, ABC and Go West all performing Christmas songs and some of their classic hits.
Other artists include Katrina from Katrina and The Waves and Black Lace, with more big-name artists to be announced later this year.
The show is being organised by Showtime Promotions, who were behind the successful Stepback 80s Concerts held in the Ericsson Indoor Arena last year which saw 8,000 people pack into the venue, as well as the StepBack 90s concert that is taking place at the same venue on Saturday, 13th October.
Early bird tickets for the Stepback Christmas concert will go on sale from 9am on Friday, 2nd March from www.stepbackconcerts.co.uk and www.ricoharena.com.
Dan Nelmes, director at Coventry-based Showtime Promotions, said: “This is a 80s music concert with a Christmas spin.
“We have put together an exceptional line-up to get people into the festive spirit, with artists such as Tony Hadley and Go West being brought back to the Stepback live series by popular demand after starring in our 80s concerts.
“Every artist on the bill has a number of Christmas classics up their sleeve as well as a fantastic back catalogue of their own chart-topping material, so this could really be one of our best shows yet.
“We are planning to announce some more big-name acts in the near future, so watch this space.”
Organisers have also pledged to donate a portion of all proceeds from the night to Zoe’s Place in Ash Green, which provides palliative, respite and end-of-life care to infants.
Nick Eastwood, chief executive at the Ricoh Arena, added: “These Stepback concerts are perfect for the festive season, as they are a real family affair that bring different generations together to enjoy iconic music from down the years.
“If the Stepback 80s concert is anything to go by, then families are set for a memorable night of singing, dancing and reminiscing.”
