Spandau Ballet

Well I’m sooooo excited I just received my Spandau Ballet concert tickets in the mail today and I feel like I’m young again! I was still living in the UK the last time they toured and I saw them at their Bornemouth concert, I have to say they were f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c! Not long after that concert I moved down under and discovered that Spandau Ballet weren’t actually as big outside of the UK :(

Anyway I’m so glad they’re playing in my new home town here in Australia and I can’t wait until April because it is going to be Gold! Sorry, I couldn’t resist that pun.

Not only are Spandau Ballet performing, but Tears for Fears are their special guests which is how I convinced my hubby to tag along with me :D I loved their Songs from the Big Chair album so I’m getting very excited to hear them as well.

Am I worried about the guys all looking older? Well yes because that means that I’ve aged….oh hang on I see that when I look in the mirror! Let’s just hope that the music’s still good and the voices are still going strong. I’ve been reading reviews of Spandau Ballet’s other tour shows and apparently Tony Hadley’s voice is even stronger…..don’t know about Tears for Fears though – do you?

Sunglasses At Night

Have you checked out what our celebs are wearing on their faces this summer, in fact the trend has been sneaking back in for a few years now – Wayfarers. Now I know that they were around a long time before the 80s, but I think we really made them look good!!!

So come on and tell me how many pairs of Wayfarers did YOU own?

Next question – how many of you are singing Boys of Summer in your head right now? You know the line I’m talking about…..”you got that hair slicked back and those wayfarers on baby…”

You can check out Wayfarers in all their glory at the appropriately named Wayfarer Sunglasses!

Pac Man

If you are feeling nostalgic for 80s video games you can play Pac Man and Space Invaders for free on your computer now, or get versions for your Playstation or Wiis even for your mobile phone! If you know someone who loves the classics though, what about baking them a cake?

Ideal for 40th birthday parties and the like a Pac Man cake can be quite easy to make and produce so many compliments you’ll be blushing for days! If you don’t know where to start then check out Pac Man Baking.

What better gift to accompany the cake than an 80s gamer tee? There are so many different types to choose from.

If you don’t like this one then check my collection out at 80s gamer tees.
