25 – 31 March
This week in the 80s…
The late Michael Jackson was famous for his signature dance moves, including the ‘moonwalk’ which he performed for the very first time, on US television on 25 March, 1983 at the Motown 25.
If you’d like to pay your respects, you could always brush up on your dance skills and take part in the ‘eternal moonwalk’.
Also, on 27 March, 1985, The South African Broadcasting Corporation banned Stevie Wonder’s music in response to Wonder dedicating the Oscar he had won the night before, for ‘I Just Called To Say I Love You’ to Nelson Mandela.
On 27 March, 1987, inspired by The Beatles’ 1969 rooftop concert, U2 shot a music video for the song “Where the Streets Have No Name” on a rooftop in Los Angeles, California, which was subsequently shut down by police due to security concerns.
Till next week!
