Remember spending nights on the dance floor till the early morning hours, when musicians like Madonna, Queen, Abba, Stevie Wonder or Tina Turner kept on rocking all night long? Audiences will be able to relive those heady nights this April at the Vegas of Africa.

The time warp will begin at the Theatre of Marcellus on 12 April with That 80’s Show!, a high energy concert of virtuoso musicianship and remarkable vocalists that brings the hot favourites of 80’s music back to life.

That 80’s Show is directed by Mike McCullagh of 60 Something and Station 70 fame. Featuring flashbacks to Whitney Houston, Bob Marley, Roxette, Paul Simon, Michael Jackson, Joan Jett and many more, That 80’s Show! will have audiences dancing in the aisles and singing along until long after the final curtain.

A cast of sensational local talent is lined up - starting with lead male vocalists, the amazing Keenan Arrison, fresh from the MNet TV series THE WILD, accompanied by Riyaan Cornelius whose high vocal range is perfect for the 80’s lyrics. And leading the cast of brilliant female vocalists will be blonde stunner Lucy Tops whose electrifying Tina Turner impersonation cannot be missed, and the awesome bombshell Zena Wood. With a line up like this, audiences can look forward to a thrilling rendition of the most popular songs of the 80’s. That 80’s Show! promises to be fun-filled entertainment for all ages, ideal for families and great for a rocking reunion of old school buddies.

The 90-minute show runs from 12 – 27 April every Friday and Saturday night at the Theatre of Marcellus from 20h30. Emperors Palace is a Peermont resort. For more information and for bookings visit or call +27 (0)11 928 1297 or visit us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @emperorspalace.
