On Saturday June 3rd, Electric Avenue will be performing George Michael’s landmark album ‘Faith’ in its entiriety, along with singles from ‘Listen Without Prejiduce’, ‘Wham!’ and other 80s hits.
In 1987 Faith spent an impressive 12 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard; producing 7 singles, 5 number ones and took home the Grammy for album of the year. An amazing feat for the then 24 year old writer/multi-instrumentalist/producer. Faith also provided us with the soundtrack that defined the last few years of the 80s and brought sexual freedom to the airwaves.
Barring the invention of time travel, Electric Avenue is, hands down, the most accurate and exciting 80’s Pop Tribute you’re going to find anywhere this side of 1988. A high-definition snapshot of an era when vintage synthesizers and drum machines were at the top of the food chain, a thing called Radio.
They’ve been invited to share stages from Los Angeles to Tampa, Bahamas to Jamaica, by the likes of Pat Benatar, Kid Rock, Bobby Kimball (Toto), Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla, and at sea on the Walking Dead Cast Cruise, Kid Rocks ‘lucky 7th Annual’ Chillin The Most Cruise, The Pitbull Cruise and the Gronk Cruise with Rob Gronkowski (New England Patriots). They were also bestowed the honor of being the final band to ever perform at Turner Field
Electric Avenue delivers spot-on renditions of Tears for Fears, Wham!, Duran Duran, Simple Minds, Howard Jones, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Level 42, Naked Eyes, Soft Cell, Kenny Loggins, INXS, Prince, The Clash, OMD, David Bowie and more. Enough songs and memories to ensure that you are the star of your own John Hughes film!
