Legendary London Club Blitz Returns this Weekend for One Night Only

Apply your makeup, people, because Saturday night in London, the legendary Blitz Club is returning for one night only. The occasion: the 30th anniversary of the mecca that helped spawn an entire youth movement, New Romanticism.

Names such as Visage, Gary Numan, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Spandau Ballet, and Culture Club all made the scene at the Blitz Club, just a stone’s throw from Leicester Square in Covent Garden. Boy George celebrated the club’s “Blitz Kids” scene in his musical, Taboo. Though the original building is ancient history, original doorman/DJ Steve Strange (pictured, in a recent photograph) will once again make the scene with his friend Rusty Egan. The pair bought the club in ’79-’80 and turned it into the hottest destination in Central London, in turn inspiring other artists like John Galliano. If you happen to be in London this weekend, you might want to drop by.
