One of the most popular boy bands of the Nineties are heading our way...

East
17, the
boy band that sold over 20 million records worldwide, will perform a one-off
Nineties-inspired Christmas gig in McGettigan’s at the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers on
16 December. We're shocked at how pleased we are about this. 

East
17 were formed in 1991 by front man Tony Mortimer in Walthamstow, London. The
original line up consisted of Tony Mortimer, Brian Harvey, John Hendy and Terry
Coldwell and they enjoyed massive chart success in their decade with hits such as
House of Love, Let it Rain, It’s Alright and If You Ever featuring Gabrielle.
East 17 shot to fame with the release of Stay Another Day, which became one of
the biggest-selling Christmas anthems of all time and stayed at the number 1
spot in the UK and Ireland singles charts for five weeks in 1994!

The
band have had their differences over the past few years but have reformed with
original members Tony Mortimer, John Hendy and Terry Coldwell and are touring
with their Greatest Hits Tour. McGettigan’s Irish Pub will transform into a
Nineties retro venue for the band on Friday 16 December as East 17 take to the
stage to perform all their hits just in time for Christmas!

INFO: Tickets
cost Dhs100 are on sale at the venue. For
