Celebrate the music of Frankie Goes to Hollywood this week in Liverpool

29/11/2021

By Christmas 1984, Frankie Goes to Hollywood were unstoppable and had well and truly become one the most successful bands to come from the UK.

With two massive No.1’s already under their belt, Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s iconic Christmas hit The Power of Love went to No.1 on December 8th 1984. This was the first time a band had notched up three No.1s with their first three debut single releases since fellow scousers Gerry and the Pacemakers.

Born out of Liverpool’s post-punk scene with a brash, mischievous, ‘do what you want’ attitude – Frankie were a one-off. They had a sound and image unlike anything else; part punk with rock and dance thrown in for good measure.

“We’d had sex and war, so religion was obviously the next stop on the controversy train” says guitarist Nasher.

Frankie guitarist Nasher is coming to the BME this week to talk about all things Christmas 1984 with local music-writer Paul Fitzgerald.  

Paul and Nasher will be talking about The Power of Love, touring America, Band Aid, Christmas TOTP and their three sell-out shows at Liverpool’s Royal Court.

As an extra treat, Nasher will also be performing the band’s iconic Christmas song. 

All tickets are £8 and you can book yours here.
