Long have we had requests for both David Bowie and Queen Sing-Alongs and long has been our response: there’s not really enough music videos of either to make a full Sing-Along out of. But all that changed when we realized one magical song brings these musical virtuosos together…Under Pressure!

We’re putting on one glamtastic Sing-Along featuring Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen, Queen Bitch, We Are the Champions, Space Oddity, We Will Rock You, Modern Love, Rebel Rebel and more! We might even throw in a little Bowie’s in Space or Ice Ice Baby to round it all off. All with the words subtitled on the screen for the entire crowd to Sing-Along to!

- Put on some make-up and dress to impress for a chance to win free drinks and tickets in the Costume Contest (Wear an eye patch! Grow a sweet ‘stache! Dress like a clown! Squeeze into some tight leather!)

On July 27th, 1984 a film was released with a soundtrack that is hands down one of the best albums ever made. That movie was Purple Rain. And while the movie itself isn’t award worthy it’s still an awesome movie that is incredibly Sing-Alongable. To honor the anniversary of this momentous work of art we’re hosting a Prince and Purple Rain Sing-Along at Union Hall!

To show our love of all things of the artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince now known again as Prince, we’ve not only subtitled the awesome songs in Purple Rain but we’ve also got music videos like Little Red Corvette, Raspberry Beret, Kiss, 1999, Cream, Sexy MF and more to Sing-Along to!

Before the show we’ve got some great Prince related clips from TV, movies, the Chappelle Show, interviews, live concerts and more to make the night even better. We’ve even got the hard to find music video for Batdance! While you’re singing and dancing, drink some themed drinks like the Raspberry Beret, Cream, Dove Tears, Sexy MF and more!

On top of that we’ll be throwing Prince inspired contests (Prince Sexy Dance Off and Doves Crying Contest) beforehand to win some people some free drinks! Prepare to get your sexy on.
