The Village People will make their way to Canberra in March 2015 as part of their Greatest Hits World Tour.

From the event organisers:

The Village People are synonymous with good fun, great memories and true showmanship. Formed inNew York in 1977 the band became hugely popular thanks to a number of disco inspired mega-hits… ‘Macho Man’, ‘In The Navy’  ‘Go West’ and the dance floor anthem ‘YMCA’…

Live is where the VILLAGE PEOPLE experience really comes into its own.  These six talented men combine energetic choreography with outrageous fun in a party atmosphere. Audience participation is mandatory – fans can’t help getting into the nostalgic trip down disco memory lane … and just see if your limbs don’t start contorting into the alphabet when you hear ‘YMCA’!

VILLAGE PEOPLE are:

Ray Simpson (Cop & lead singer), Alexander Briley (Soldier), Felipe Rose (Native American), Eric Anzalone (Biker), Bill Whitefield (Construction Worker) and Jim Newman (Cowboy) 

When: Thursday 12 March 2015
Time: From 8pm
Where: Canberra Theatre Centre – The Playhouse, London Circuit

Tickets are $75.75 (plus booking fee) and are available from the Canberra Theatre Centre website

While this may be good news for some, others will miss out on the Paul Simon / Sting Kodachrome tour which won’t becoming to Canberra.
I would have thought that Paul Simon and Sting would have a vastly greater following in Canberra than the Village People.

Did you know Paul Simon’s song Kodachrome was banned from airplay in Australia due to the word “cr@p” in the opening line?

That surprises me as that word has never offended me. When I lived near Orange many years ago the local radio station 2GZ banned Elvis yet played Little Richard’s “Tuti-Frutti, I wanna Rutti” (whatever that meant).

If you are familiar with the VP at all, you would know that only three of the original classic lineup remain.

Glenn Hughes, the biker guy died of cancer last decade. Original Cowboy and Construction worker performers left in the 80s.

$75 for more of a tribute show really.
