What A Night To Remember
Arena Of The Stars
Limahl started the shows with his hits like Too Shy and especially the smash hit from 1984, Never Ending Story . Limahl also performed the Duran Duran's RIO which he said is a tribute to John Taylor who discovered him when he was still a waiter.
The show then continued with Johnny Hates Jazz where they started with I Don't Want To Be A Hero , followed by Turn Back The Clock, Heart Of Gold and their biggest hit Shattered Dream. The lead singer is not Clark Datchler since he left in 1988 so it just doesn't sounded like Johnny Hates Jazz anymore.
Next is the man himself Paul Young came out with Come Back And Stay, I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down, Love Of The Common People and the evergreen Everytime You Go Away. Can't remember 1 more song . Paul Young's is not quite the same like during his hey day. If I'm not mistaken he had a major throat surgery sometime years ago . Another thing is, Paul Young does look like his age is catching up quite fast at 52 .
The best performer of the night many agreed is Howard Jones rendered hits such as What Is Love, Things Can Only Gets Better, New Song, No One To Be Blamed and a song that I don't really recognised. I was hoping for Everlasting Love but it's not in his list, I guess .
And Finally the most successful trio band ever Bananarama (now duo) came out with the most songs which 7 all together while the rest with 5 each . Karen and Sarah stills look great with hits such as Love In A first Degree, Nathan Jones, Cruel Summer, Walking Down The Street, Robert De Niro's Waiting and of course the song that shots them to International Stardom, Venus . The tour ended with Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye . Then the show ended with a 80's dance party where some stayed back . I was there for the 1st performance and as I am writing this story I just got some information where after the shows ended for the 2nd performance, all the singers did came down to the crowds and joined for the the 80's dance party scheduled after the show. DANG....I should have been there for the 2nd performance instead .
