The Buggles to reform for charity gig (2010)

The Buggles

Story by Jack Foley

‘80s icons The Buggles are to reform for a one-off charity gig in September 2010.

Co-founder Trevor Horn announced that the band will play “at a special and intimate West London venue” on September 28, along with some very special guests.

The gig will be for one night only and will see the original line-up perform their debut album, The Age of Plastic – including their 1979 number one Video Killed The Radio Star – in full.

In spite of their chart-topping single success, The Buggles only released two albums before their break-up in 1981, and they never toured.

Horn, however, went on to become one of the UK’s most successful pop producers, recording with Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Pet Shop Boys.

Proceeds from the September show will go to the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in London.
