The setlist will be made up 18 songs, performed by 100 singers and a five-piece live band. There’ll also be fabulous 80s-inspired costumes, as audiences are taken on a spectacular musical journey through the heartfelt ballads and anthems that defined a generation.

“[The programme is] a blast from the past from start to finish injected with SGLC’s signature sparkle,” Musical Director Adam Majsay says.

“The music of the 1980s seems to have an almost universal appeal. Whether you were burning up the dancefloor in the ‘80s, or were not even born yet, the songs of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Queen, Bonnie Tyler are instant crowd favourites, at the karaoke machine, in the nightclubs, at the pub, and, for one night only, on stage with Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir.”

The setlist includes such bangers as ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ from Queen, celebratory anthem ‘I’m Coming Out’ from Diana Ross, ‘Like A Virgin’ and ‘Material Girl’ from Madonna, ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart’ from Bonnie Tyler and more.

Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir has been part of the soundtrack of Sydney queer community for more than 30 years. It’s a non-auditioned choir, meaning it’s open to all regardless of sexual identity or musical experience. SGLC is united by a love of singing together, and performance excellence.

This is your chance to dust off the shoulder pads, take your hair to new heights, and relive the magic of the ‘80s.

Tickets are on sale now.
