The Bergen Performing Arts Center, proudly invites and welcomes all to its show, Awesome 80's, taking place on Tuesday, July 2, 2013 at 8:00PM. It is going to be an incredible show led by the charismatic Martha and The Motels, with special performances by bands, Bow Wow Wow, and Gene Loves Jezebel.
Building on the success of her return to the music scene, Martha Davis and The Motels are scheduled to perform at the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, New Jersey, on July 2, 2013 at 8pm. Her unmistakable and timeless voice will lead the Awesome 80's Tour, performing her great hits 'Suddenly Last Summer' and 'Only the Lonely' to name a few. East coast concert goers will also be some of the first fans to hear new music as welL. Davis is riding a wave of attention for a voice that has stayed true to form decades after bursting onto the music scene as a pioneer of new wave, when the Los Angeles Times' critic Robert Hilburn called her "arguably the most charismatic female performer in rock."
Lately, Davis has been co-writing several songs for the new Motels album with multiple Grammy winner Charlie Colin, co-founding member of Train, and co-writer of the Grammy Award winning mega hit DROPS OF JUPITER. Colin has received over 36 music awards during his musical career, making their collaboration one of the most highly anticipated releases in the music world - not to mention with her fans.
Long time fans, as well as those new to her music since her recent return to the stage, are lining up to be a part of the Awesome 80's summer concert at Bergen, where she will take the stage with Bow Wow Wow and Gene Loves Jezebel as opening artists that evening.
'To be taking the stage at this outstanding venue, where music and education are being brought to the community, is quite an honor.' states Davis. 'The Motels' are excited to be a part of the Awesome 80's summer concert series, and look forward to seeing all of our fans in the New Jersey area.'
The Motels return to the east coast marks a historic musical moment, as Martha continues her tour of standing room only concert events to date, having recently played the legendary stage at the Hollywood Bowl for the first time. Upcoming concerts include a headline performance at the Ford Stage at the Del Mar County Fair on the 4th of July, and a September date playing with The Bangles.
