THE TIME OF MY LIFE: LAS VEGAS 80S CONCERTS
We sing these songs at karaoke bars, in cars, and on the jukebox. But the only real way to experience the 80s and this era of soaring anthems is with a crowd of fellow, die-hard fans.
FAN AND LOCAL FAVORITE FESTIVALS
A Sin City and fan favorite, Lost 80’s Live celebrated their 16th anniversary last year, featuring bands: A Flock of Seagulls, Missing Persons, Wang Chung, The Tubes, Farrington and Mann the original vocalists of “When in Rome UK”, and The Motels… the list goes on.
If this sounds like a party, it certainly was and will be as this 80s festival visits every year. All music tastes were satiated with varieties of new wave, synthpop, rock, pop and electronic music, including all the reasons to love and relive the 80s.
