The iHeart80s Party returns for a second year with a packed lineup of classic Reagan-era acts including New Kids on the Block, UB40, Rick Astley, Men at Work's Colin Hay, Starship, Eddie Money and Night Ranger. The show, hosted by original MTV VJ Martha Quinn, will take place at the SAP Center in San Jose on Jan. 28.

“The music of the 80’s defined a generation in America three decades ago -- and it's still driving pop culture today,” said John Sykes, President of iHeartMedia Entertainment Enterprises in a statement. “Last year’s iHeart80s Party sold out in minutes, showing the enduring popularity of 80s artists and their music.”

The 2016 debut of the show in Los Angeles featured performances from Tears for Fears, Culture Club, Billy Idol, Missing Persons, Rick Springfield and Loverboy and special appearances from Corey Feldman, Kris Jenner, iJustine, Mario Lopez and Harry Hamlin.
