The AutoMatic 80s Show is back in Christchurch for a second show just in time for a pre-Xmas blow out! Amez Amez delivers the monster New Romantic and New Wave hits of the Eighties – live, loud and pumping. The hundreds of hours of pre-production, musicianship and attention to vocal detail create an authentic live Eighties Music experience that leaves enthralled audiences exhausted and voiceless. Be propelled back to the age of synthplicity.

The show two-hour long show is performed by Amez Amez, a world class group of musicians featuring the brilliant sound-alike vocals and high energy stage antics of frontman Justin Maclaren, backed up by the enigmatic Pearl Runga (vocals/synths), drummer and programmer Andrew Maclaren (Stellar*), guitarist Andrew Thorne and bassist Brett Wells. With special guest, DJ '59 to 1'.

The band plays a hand-picked selection of classic 80s hits by bands including Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Simple Minds, Erasure, Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, Dead or Alive, Madness, ABC, Blondie, U2, OMD, Icehouse, Spandau Ballet, Kim Carnes, Duran Duran, Tears for Fears and many more. Here is what people are saying about shows in 2012/2013:

"My girlfriends and I attended the gig at the Castle on Friday and were completely blown away! You played everything that we loved from back in the day and played them soooo well!
