Remember when Billy Ocean sang, “Get outta my dreams, Get into my car!”. The 1988 hitmaker must have known an 80s drive-in revival was coming to London in October. So grab your car keys, because global music streaming service Deezer is hosting a one-off drive-in experience packed with 80s music, food and fancy dress!
The special #DeezerDriveIn is part of National Album Day (NAD), with this year’s focus on the 80s. Now in its third year, NAD and Deezer are hoping to inspire more people to listen to full albums. Hosted in North London, the drive-in will be held three days before NAD, on Wednesday 7th October.
We know the covid-19 outbreak has meant it’s a difficult time for musicians, so 100% of event proceeds will go to Help Musicians. The charity supports musicians with financial hardship, creative development and mental health support. There’s limited spots available – so grab your ticket early!
When you’ve pulled up with your ticket, enjoy four incredible live recorded performances from 80’s legends on a massive top-of-the-range LED screen. Retro fancy dress is strongly encouraged – we’re talking big hair, shoulder pads and bold colours. And if we’re going back to the 80’s, you’ll also need 80’s menu prices!
Here’s our great line-up for the night:
(1988) Madonna, ‘The Virgin Tour’
(1987) Prince, ‘Sign o’ the Times’
(1987) Stevie Nicks, ‘Live at Red Rocks’
(1988) David Bowie, ‘Glass Spider Tour’
Adam Read, Deezer’s Music Editor for the UK & Ireland said, “The 80s was all about extravagance. Fun, catchy tunes that often matched big hair and personalities. We want to relive all the highs with brilliant music from legends like Prince and Stevie Nicks with an unforgettable music experience to support artists during this challenging time. In addition to giving all event profits to Help Musicians, we hope more people will fall in love with 80s music again, streaming albums from such an iconic decade.”
Tickets are on sale now for £15 per car from Drive In London. Important Notice: this event will be operating in accordance with all government Covid-19 required safety measures.
When: #DeezerDriveIn doors will officially open at 6.15pm, with music kicking off from 7pm. Plenty of time to get warmed up before the show starts.
Where: Groups ready to get in on the good times should head to Drive In, Troubadour Meridian Water, Harbet Road, London, N18 3QQ on Wednesday 7th October. Don’t have a car?
