Bring back the teased hair, fishnet gloves and bold colours – the ‘80s are coming to Campbelltown in a big way.

Worldwide sensation Belinda Carlisle is bringing her greatest hits to Campbelltown next year.

The former Go-Go’s member is celebrating the 30th anniversary of her hugely successful solo album Runaway Horses with a tour around Australia in early 2019.

She will perform at The Cube, Campbelltown Catholic Club on Friday, February 22.

Tickets for the exciting show went on sale on Thursday, July 5.

Carlisle’s third solo album was released in 1989, reaching number six on the Australian album charts.

It featured the ubiquitous radio hits Leave a Light On and Summer Rain as well as singles Vision of You and La Luna.

Carlisle, now 59, found fame as a 20-year-old with her successful all-girl pop group The Go-Go’s.

The group is well-known for songs such as Our Lips are Sealed and We Got the Beat.

She launched her solo career after the band broke up in 1985.

Her first album, Belinda, was released in 1986, followed by Heaven on Earth in 1986.

The sophomore album produced another chart-topper in Heaven is a Place on Earth

The single was a smash hit, reaching number one in the US and UK and climbing to number two in Australia.

It also scored Carlisle her only Grammy nomination, for best female pop vocal performance.

The song was followed by fellow top-10 tune I Get Weak.

Carlisle released several more albums in the 90s – Live Your Life, Be Free (1991), Real (1993) and A Woman and a Man (1996).

Her most recent album, Wilder Shores, was released in 2017.

Carlisle has also branched outside the music industry – the singer-songwriter tried her hand at writing with the release of her autobiography Lips Unsealed in 2010.

Aussie band 1927 will open for Carlisle in Campbelltown. They are well-known for songs That’s When I Think of You and If I Could.
