Best of the 80s Rewind Festivals
Kajagoogoo - Too Shy - 80s Rewind
I've always adored the bassline in this song and here we can see some awesome bass playing from Nick Beggs. This is an excellent live performance and Limahl's voice sounds in good shape, although the same can't be said about his hair! This is the best video I could find as far as sound quality is concerned, as other clips were very "tinny".
Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up

This is amateur footage from an 80s Rewind concert in Durban, South Africa in 2012. It's a short clip, but it really gives you a good sense of the atmosphere at the event, and Rick's voice is on top form. Produced by Stock, Aitken and Waterman and Rick Astley's debut single, the song topped the charts in 25 countries and remains his biggest hit.

The ex Frankie Goes To Hollywood frontman performs three classic hits; Relax, Two Tribes and The Power Of Love. A great performance and Holly is looking and sounding great!
Starship - We Built This City - 2012
This performance is from the Henley-On-Thames 80s Rewind festival in England during August 2012. The song was Starship's debut single which was also released in August (way back in 1985) and topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. In the UK the song peaked at No.12.
ABC - The Look Of Love - Henley 2011

This was ABC's biggest 80s hit here in the UK, reaching #4 in 1982, and featuring on the band's classic album The Lexicon Of Love. The song also reached a very respectable #18 in the U.S. This is a very decent performance and Martin Fry can still belt out those hits.

Midge Ure - Fade To Grey - Henley 2010

This was a huge dance hit back in 1980 for Visage, of course. The song was partly produced and written by Midge Ure, and although I would prefer to see Steve Strange as a vocalist, this is an interesting version of the song with a rockier edge.
