On December 1st, at the O2 World Hamburg and December 2nd, 2011 at the O2 World Berlin it said ‘Back to the 80s-LIVE’.
Inasmuch the music and the style are a must have of this decade, like-minded people could go on a first class time travel to see one of the biggest parties of the 80s.
This show featured some of the greatest artists of the 80s, for example ABC, Nik Kershaw, Alphaville, Tony Hadley and Level 42. The artists performed their greatest hits live and made for a real revival.
The 80s party was one technical and logistical challenge. It was a so-called back-to-back show and the crew had to assemble the complete set once in Hamburg and one day later in Berlin. Black Box Music handled this production with bravery and equipped the entire concert with lighting and sound equipment. Among other things, for the PA system L-Acoustic K1, L-Acoustic Kara, L-Acoustic SB-28, L-Acoustic SB 218, L-Acoustic FM 115 monitors, L-Acoustic ARCS, L-Acoustic LA-RAK, L-Acoustic RK-12 / 4 mixer Soundcraft VI 6, Shure UHF routes, Sennheiser IEM, and microphones from Shure, Sennheiser and AKG. For the lighting system were used: Mac 2000 Washlight, Mac 700 Spotlight, Spotlight Mac III, GLP impression 120 RZ.
