Award-winning 80’s pop icons Go West were set to celebrate their 35th Anniversary in 2020 with a special run of UK shows, together with a full live orchestra featuring all their greatest hits plus very special guests Cutting Crew.  However due to the pandemic the shows were postponed and have now been rescheduled to 2022. The band have arranged and rehearsed remotely throughout the last 6 months with The Southbank Sinfonia and are now performing together in person for the first time for these four fantastic shows!

Go West are one of the most successful singer/songwriter pop duos from the glorious 80’s pop decade.  Formed in 1982 by Peter Cox (Lead vocalist) and Richard Drummie (Guitarist and backing vocals) the band burst into the charts with their debut ‘We Close Our Eyes’ and went on to have a  string of hits including ‘Call Me’, “Don’t Look Down’, ‘Goodbye Girl’, ‘Faithful’, ‘Tracks of My Tears’ & ‘King of Wishful Thinking’’ which featured on the blockbuster movie ‘Pretty Woman’ starring Julia Roberts & Richard Gere. It sold over 10 million copies worldwide, received an ASCAP award and was one of the most played songs on American Radio.

Their eponymously titled debut album sold 1.5 million copies worldwide and remained on the UK chart for 83 weeks, with the music video that launched them into the charts ‘We Close Our Eyes’ directed by Godley & Crème. They then went on to win the people’s choice BRIT Award for ‘Best British Newcomer’ in 1986.

Now celebrating over 35 years in the business and followed by a double headline tour with Paul Young in May, ‘Celebrating 35 Years of Go West with Full Live Orchestra’ launches March 2022 in Southend on the 16th, followed by Manchester, Birmingham and their homecoming gig in London on March 20th.  These special, must see orchestral shows, also features support from fellow 80’s chart toppers Cutting Crew
