Hitmakers Wang Chung, Men Without Hats, The Motels, and Naked Eyes have joined forces to return to the neon-soaked, synth-driven decade with 2024’s “Abducted by the ’80s” tour. Combined, the four acts recorded 28 Billboard Hot 100 hits including eight Top 10s. Tickets are available here. (Note: Not all shows are available for purchase.)

From the March 20 announcement: The 1980s were a unique, fun-filled era of music shaped in no small part by the emergence of MTV and the genre of New Wave. Fans will soon have a chance to step back in time to the electrifying era of the ’80s with a music tour that promises a nostalgic journey of iconic sounds and unforgettable melodies.

Get ready to dance, sing along, and relive the magic of the 80s with this unforgettable music tour, including mega-hits such as “Everybody Have Fun Tonight,” “Dance Hall Days,” “Let’s Go,” “To Live and Die in L.A.,” “Safety Dance,” “Pop Goes the World,” “Only The Lonely,” “Suddenly Last Summer,” “Take The L,” “Always Something There To Remind Me” and “Promises, Promises.”

“I’m so excited to be reunited with Wang Chung and Naked Eyes for the ‘Abducted by the ’80s’ tour,” says the Motels‘ Martha Davis. “Nick, Jack, and Pete are some of my favorite people, not to mention amazing musicians! Hope to see you all there for some great nights and wonderful music.”

“For our brand new tour, we have put together a group of acts that fit together musically, thematically, and harmoniously,” adds Wang Chung‘s Nick Feldman and Jack Hues. “We wanted to create a night of big hits, big songs from your favorite movies and numerous TV shows, plus a few deeper cuts.”

    If I were, say, about 10 years younger, and still going to concerts (which I haven’t in a few years, in part because of my ears, in part because of the outrageous ticket prices), I MIGHT have an interest in going to this. But dang, man, we have four bands here and less than ten hits between them!
