For a brief period during the early eighties Kajagoogoo were one of the biggest British Pop Groups of the day, vying with such musical contemporaries as Duran Duran, Culture Club and Spandau Ballet.
After only eight months, three Top Ten Hits (including the worldwide No. 1 ‘Too Shy’ and a million-selling album, lead singer Limahl and the rest of the band went their separate ways…
The band released ‘Too Shy’ in January 1983 and had huge success, going in at number 1 in the UK Singles Chart and top five on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Following their hugely successful break out the band spent a total of 47 weeks in the UK Singles Chart with various hits including ‘Ooh To Be Ah’, ‘Hang on Now’, ‘Big Apple’, ‘The Lion’s Mouth’, and ‘Turn Your Back On Me’.
The band had 2 top 40 albums with ‘White Feathers’ and ‘Islands’, the first of which peaked at number 5 in the UK Album Charts and stayed in the charts for 20 weeks.
Limahl’s charming persona and rebellious attitude continue to see him and his group grow their fan base worldwide.
Limahl continued to enjoy chart success as a solo artist, more notably with ‘Never-ending Story’ from the Smash Hit Film of the same name, which reached Number One in seventeen countries including Top Ten in the U.S.
These days Limahl can usually be found working hard behind the scenes at his Recording Studio in Shepherds Bush composing, producing and remixing with some of today’s new contemporaries including Tony Di Bart, Livin’ Joy, Kim Wilde, and Peter Andrea amongst others.
However, Limahl has finally decided to do the right thing and return to the spotlight to perform with a full band for the first time in ten years…
In this specially prepared show, who better than Limahl to take the audience back in time for that ultimate new wave and new romantic trip … expect the Kajagoogoo/Limahl favourites, but also a celebration and collection of the biggest hits from those fabulous early eighties!

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
