We are SO pleased to announce our final two acts for Forever Young Festival – completing the line up for our inaugural event at Palmerstown House, Naas 5th to 7th July THIS YEAR…
First up it’s the one and only Holly Johnson from Frankie Goes to Hollywood!
Holly brings a repertoire of huge, powerful and anthemic hits that will transport you back to the hedonism of the 80s.
Known as the architect, lead vocalist and principal songwriter of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Holly was catapulted into stardom following the phenomenal success of their debut single Relax which became one of the best-selling singles of all time.
Following the release of the group’s second single, “Two Tribes”, “Relax” started to climb back up the UK charts again and re-attain number-two spot behind “Two Tribes” 9-week tenure at number one, representing unprecedented simultaneous chart success by a single act, since the early 1960s!
Having spent nearly 4 months of 1984 at the top of the charts Johnson had firmly established himself as a household name.
And if that wasn’t enough, our final act to be announced for the festival is the number one 80s Welsh songstress, with the big hair, and even bigger voice – the timeless Bonnie Tyler! With a career spanning four decades, and a voice instantly identifiable the world over, Bonnie is the international first lady of rock.
Her collaboration with epic rock pioneer Jim Steinman garnered both Grammy Nomination and international recognition with the album “Faster Than The Speed Of Night”, and multi-platinum selling power ballad “Total Eclipse Of The Heart”.
So hold onto your hairspray, because this summer is going to be one that you’ll never forget!
