The Village People are teaming up with The ABBA people – Bjorn Again – to celebrate their 4oth Anniversary!
The Village People were an instant phenomenon in the ’70s and ’80s with hits such as YMCA, San Francisco/In Hollywood, Macho Man, In the Navy, Go West , Can’t Stop the Music and many more.
2017 sees this highly popular act reach the amazing 40 year milestone, and Bjorn Again are thrilled to be asked to join them for the celebration.
The SINGAPORE concert will take place at The Marina Bay Sands on May 18 and 19 – don’t miss this for the world! More dates including Australia will be announced soon.
The Village People were originally created by Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo in 1977 to target disco’s gay audience by featuring popular gay fantasy personae. Songwriters Phil Hurtt and Peter Whitehead were engaged to compose songs with gay underpinnings, and roles and costumes were carefully selected; among them a cowboy, biker, soldier, policeman and construction worker complete with hard hat.
The group clicked first in England with the single “San Francisco (You Got Me)” in 1977, followed by “Macho Man” in 1978. “Y.M.C.A.” and “In the Navy” were worldwide smashes, both peaking at number two on the pop charts. Two more successful singles followed, “Go West” and “Can’t Stop the Music,” and they become a household name world-wide.
