Relive the memories of the 80s to Now at Rockwood Theatre

August brings a journey through time to the Rockwood Theatre at Sibaya. Featuring some of the most memorable hits that have defined poignant moments from the last four decades, 80s to Now promises to “bring it all back”.

80s to Now will take you through the memories of the past four decades, the highs, the lows and the massive hits that became the soundtrack to our lives. Relive your moments and some of the biggest events of our time with 80s to Now,” says Janet Pillay, PR and Promotions Manager at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom.

Space shuttles, video arcades, Live and Band Aid concerts, the Berlin wall crumbling, Jane Fonda’s workout videos, Human League, Wham!, Depeche Mode, Bob Marley and so much more defined the 80s.

The 90s are remembered for launch of the World Wide Web, Nelson Mandela’s release, South Africa’s first free election and winning the Rugby World Cup, with songs from Bon Jovi, Alanis Morissette and the Backstreet Boys sounding on the airwaves.

The 00s to today have been fast-paced and technology-driven, giving us Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, tablets and smart phones. Luckily, music followed this fast-paced trend and with the Robbie Williams, Adele, Jason Derulo, Pitbull and Meghan Trainor to name just a few, made sure our seat belts were fastened for this decade’s ride.

80s to Now is jam-packed with hits from the 80s such as Break my stride; Wake me up before you go go; Just died in your arms; Total eclipse; Careless whisper; No woman, no cry and more. Bringing back high school memories are 90s classics like Bed of roses, Everybody, I want it that way and One hand in my pocket while songs from the 00s, like Rock DJ, Kiss the sky and Send my love will have audiences dancing in the aisles.

With a top-notch 10-piece cast of dynamic vocalists and a powerhouse band, 80s to Now is the perfect show to end the year on a high!  80s to Now runs at Rockwood Theatre, Sibaya, until November 10, 2019.

Tickets can be booked at or 031 010 6444.
