Originally formed in 1977 by French Music composer Jacques Morali, Village People quickly became an instant phenomenon throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s with chart-topping hits such as San Francisco/In Hollywood, Macho Man, Y.M.C.A, In the Navy, Go West, Can’t Stop the Music and more. Their impact and influence on music have earned them the title of “Kings of Disco”, selling more than 100 million recordings worldwide and earning them a star on the coveted Hollywood Walk of Fame.

This special 40th Anniversary tour will feature some of the Village People’s biggest hits as their timeless songs will once again be seen and heard. Get carried away with the most irresistible disco tunes performed in the Village People’s unique way.

The members of Village People performing in Singapore include original founding members Felipe Rose and Alexander Briley , who portray the Native American and GI/Soldier respectively; Ray Simpson – the Cop who joined in 1979; Eric Anzalone – the Biker who joined in 1995, Jim Newman – the Cowboy who joined in 2013 and finally Bill Whitefield – the Construction Worker who joined full time in 2013 after having been a swing for about 10 years.

Over the past few years, Village People have performed a full schedule of performances throughout the United States as well as Canada, Brazil, France, South Africa, England, Finland, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Romania, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Poland and much more. The Guinness World Records book certified their Sun Bowl appearance on 31 December 2008, as the world’s largest Y.M.C.A dance with over 40,000 fans “doing the YMCA moves” while the group performed. The group has won many international awards including the American Music Award for Favorite Musical Group in 1979, AGVA’s Georgie Award, West Germany’s Gold Lion Award for music excellence and Brazil’s 1981 Award for Best Act.

Adding to this night of disco fun and supporting the Village People is the world’s number 1 ABBA experience, Bjorn Again – the only ABBA show endorsed by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. The group is regarded as the most successful tribute band of all time, having performed in more than 100 countries worldwide and in concert venues from Sydney Opera House to Wembley Stadium. Bjorn Again will bring ABBA’s timeless hits back to the stage, combined with glitzy 70s stage costumes, Swenglish banter and hilarious stage antics to create “one of the most entertaining rock shows in the world today”(Time Out, New York).
