There’s a chance to see three of the biggest chart-topping acts of the 80s at Portsmouth Guildhall tomorrow night.

The Eighties Triple Header tour features Go West, Hue and Cry and The Christians.

Celebrating more than 25 years together, Go West had their first hit with We Close Our Eyes in 1985. They followed that with Call Me, Goodbye Girl and Don’t Look Down.

The duo won a Brit Award for Best Newcomer in 1986 and this was followed by tracks on the multi-million selling soundtrack albums Rocky IV, A Nightmare on Elm Street and White Men Can’t Jump.

The 90s started with them recording the opening track King of Wishful Thinking on the popular Pretty Woman soundtrack and following that with three Top 5 US hits.

Hue and Cry burst onto the UK music scene in the late 1980s with the albums Seduced And Abandoned and Remote. Singles included Labour of Love, Violently and Looking for Linda. In the 90s they released album Stars Crash Down, scoring a Top 10 hit.

Merseyside stars The Christians were prime movers in the soul scene that emerged out of England’s north-west at the end of the 80s. Hits included Harvest For The World and Forgotten Town.

They will all be at the Guildhall on Tuesday. Tickets: £28.50, £26.50 and £24.50. Call (0844) 847 2362 or visit portsmouthguildhall.org.uk.
