The Buggles Return, One Night Only, Sept 28th, In London

Trevor Horn and ZTT Records have announced the return of The Buggles, on stage for their first ever full live gig, 30 years after their international #1 hit single Video Killed The Radio Star.

Trevor will reconvene the original Buggles line-up, including Geoff Downes (Yes, Asia) and Bruce Woolley (Camera Club, Grace Jones), to preform their début album, The Age of Plastic, in full.

No tour is planned, no DVD or live CD will be released. The Buggles, along with some guest artists, will perform live on stage for one night only, on 28 September 2010 at a West London venue.

This event is being put together to raise funds for London’s Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability. Active since 1854, the hospital has a simple but very important mission: to add years to life and life to years.

Further details – including surprise guests, support acts, and pre-show exclusives – will be announced soon. You can register for more info at Horn’s site.
