Martin is bringing his Back to the 80s party to Epic Studios in Norwich on Friday, December 4 for the first night of his 12-date tour, where he will perform a DJ set spinning all the biggest tracks of the decade along with festive hits.

To celebrate the incredible job the NHS is doing tackling coronavirus, along with his promoters M&B they are offering 1,500 free tickets across all dates for any NHS worker.

Martin said: “These shows will be a lot of fun and the ultimate return to the 80s.

“Music is everyone’s life soundtrack and transports us all to the best times of our lives and I think we all need that right now!

“Expect one of the most euphoric nights you’ve had since the 80s.”

More recently, he has become a DJ and performed at clubs and festivals across the UK and his 80s show is back in the city by popular demand as he also wowed fans at Epic Studios in 2019.

Martin added; “Of course I will spin a few of the Spandau classics – how could I not!

“My dance skills are a one out of 10, I’m 57 not 27 so I thought my clubbing days were behind me! However, I’m good at dad dancing – so I might join you all down the front!”

Tickets cost £22.50 and are available at epic-tv.com and NHS workers can apply for a free ticket by emailing proof of NHS employment to info@easyticketing.co.uk
