The Buggles to reunite for one night only

By | Published on Wednesday 11 August 2010

Thirty years ago, The Buggles – Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes – scored an international hit with ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ (also the first ever music video to air on MTV) and went on to release two albums. However, they never got around to playing any gigs, which was a bit of an oversight.

They’re going to rectify this, though. Horn, Downes and other original member Bruce Woolley (who wrote most of ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ but left the band before it was released) will perform live somewhere in west London on 28 Sep, playing their debut album, ‘The Age Of Plastic’, in full. The exact location of the show, as well as the names of some special guests who will join the band on stage, are to be announced soon.

The announcement of the gig on Trevor Horn’s website stresses that “no tour is planned, no DVD or live CD will be released”. Proceeds from the gig will go to London’s Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability.
