Frankie Goes To Hollywood – ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’ Album Playback Special To Celebrate 30 Year Anniversary
Trevor Horn and Classic Album Sundays present Frankie Goes To Hollywood – ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’ in celebration of the iconic album’s 30th anniversary.
Due to take place on 25th September, it’s a one-off, album playback special at SARM Studio 1 – where it was originally cut – with only 60 tickets available through PledgeMusic.
The event consists of a full album playback on an studio quality valve-driven analogue sound system and the album’s inimitable Trevor Horn will be interviewed by Colleen Murphy, founder of Classic Album Sundays. There will also be an audience Q&A session.
This is one of the last times SARM Studios will be open to the public, with planned redevelopment work set for later this year – so don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!
