Jack Hues, frontman of the band Wang Chung joins Kristen on BEN Around Philly, all the way from Canterbury, England to talk about the great 80’s show happening on Saturday (6/13) and streaming for FREE at 2PM EST and 7PM EST on the Abducted by the 80’s Facebook page. The show is called Back to the Basement and it’s a benefit show to help raise money for Direct Relief’s COVID-19 relief program. Wang Chung will be featured, as well as a number of other at-home performances from A Flock of Seagulls, Naked Eyes, Cutting Crew, Nelson, Nu Shooz, Animotion, Information Society, When in Rome, The Vapors and more, plus special appearances by Tiffany, Richard Blade and Downtown Julie Brown.

Jack talks with Kristen about the show, his time spent under quarantine during this pandemic, his grandson, the postponement of touring for his new solo album Primitif, and the new Coronavirus-era version of Wang Chung’s ‘Everybody Have Fun Tonight’. The band redid the song as ‘Everybody Stay SAFE Tonight’ featuring Valerie Day of Nu Shooz. Be sure to check out the video for the new version of the song as it premieres on Saturday as a part of the Back to the Basement show. If you miss the show this weekend, it will be made available on YouTube at a later date, but please donate if you’re able. There are also t-shirts available with proceeds being donated to Direct Relief. Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to stay safe, have fun, and Wang Chung!
