Sorry, there are no Hit Factory Christmas Cracker dates.
This unmissable show celebrates the legendary Stock Aitken Waterman songwriting and production team, the phenomenal success of Pete Waterman’s PWL label and, above all, the irresistible pop that came to define an era in British music history. Once called ‘The Sound of a Bright Young Britain’, it undoubtedly now stands as the soundtrack to a generation, with sales of over 500 million units worldwide.
Pete Waterman said: “Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker will be the biggest and best celebration of SAW and PWL ever. This will be the perfect party to commemorate our 25th anniversary. We were devastated when Hyde Park's Hit Factory Live had to be cancelled but now the party is back on with an epic line-up of our classic artists!"
Set to perform at this unique event are the classic artists from the PWL Hit Factory, who will be performing on the same bill for the very first time. Steps, the multi-million selling group responsible for hits including One For Sorrow, Tragedy, Deeper Shade of Blue and Stomp, have had an incredible 12 months. They reformed last year and have since played a sold out a twenty-date UK arena tour and had their very own TV documentary.
Rick Astley’s international success secures his place in the Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker line-up. Rick holds the record as the first British male artist to have his first eight solo singles reach the UK Top 10 – including the global number ones Never Gonna Give You Up, Whenever You Need Somebody and Together Forever. Entertainment megastar Jason Donovan takes his place on the bill following massive success with SAW in the late 80s. His hits include Too Many Broken Hearts, Sealed with A Kiss and the best-selling SAW single ever, with UK sales of over a million – Especially For You, an unforgettable duet with Neighbours co-star Kylie Minogue.
With such classic hits such as Venus, Love In the First Degree and I Want You Back, the UK’s most-charted girl group Bananarama are an essential addition to the Hit Factory Christmas Cracker bill. Dead Or Alive, fronted by the inimitable Pete Burns, also join the line-up. Their timeless single You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) was the first number one for SAW in 1985.
Also appearing are Pepsi & Shirlie, Princess, Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia, 2 Unlimited, Lonnie Gordon and Brother Beyond. Between them, they have such signature smash hits as Heartache, Say I’m Your Number One, Toy Boy, Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go), You’ll Never Stop Me Loving You, No Limit, Happenin’ All Over Again and The Harder I Try’.
The Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker is set to be a truly unmissable spectacular.
