The Show Me Love Live show is stopping off at the seafront landmark on November 2 as part of its UK tour.

It promises to be a night of classic tunes from UK garage, R&B, hip-hop, dancehall and more.

The show is named after the hit song Show Me Love by Robin S, who will be headlining the Weston night.

First released in 1990 and then re-mixed in 1992 by Swedish house music production duo StoneBridge and Nick Nice, Show Me Love is one of the best-known house anthems in the UK.

The hit is widely acknowledged as helping to make house music more mainstream.

Show Me Love topped the dance club chart, as well as soaring to number six in the UK singles chart in April 1993.

The track was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.

UK garage legends DJ Luck and MC Neat, who had three consecutive top 10 hits in the UK in 1999 and 2000, are also performing.

The Weston show will also feature UK garage act Sweet Female Attitude, whose single Flowers in April 2000 reached number two in the UK singles chart, and was the 37th biggest selling single of the entire year.

Show Me Love resident performers DJ TRP and DJ REZA, saxophonist Alec Pitman and the Madfros Dancers complete the line-up.

A spokesman for the Show Me Love team said: “We pride ourselves on a nonstop night of dance and club anthems to keep all audience members remembering their years at super club nights.”

Michelle Michael, co-owner of the Grand Pier, said: “We’re excited to be bringing so many well-known favourite songs and popular performers to the pier on one night.”

“It promises to be a party-lover’s paradise and the atmosphere will be electric.

“This demonstrates the diversity of entertainment we host on the pier for people of all ages and tastes, and I’m sure this is going to be a night to remember.”

Tickets, priced £25, are available from www.grandpier.co.uk/whats-on/show-me-love or on 01934 646155.
