DAVID Bowie has dropped a new single, bright leggings are in fashion and there's a glam rock band playing in Ipswich this Saturday - but it's 2013, not the 1980s.

Tribute band Chrome Dragon will try their best to transport attendees at their Racehorse Hotel gig back to the decadent decade, with covers of hit '80s rock songs. Band members are dedicated to promoting '80s music and culture.

"Big hair, big guitar solos, big voices, and bigger egos ruled rock and roll," they said of the era.

The bands screamed to the masses 'What do you wanna do with your life?', and the masses screamed back 'I wanna rock!'

"The bands screamed to the masses 'What do you wanna do with your life?', and the masses screamed back 'I wanna rock!'"

Attendees can relive the fun of the decade, with two hours of '80s hits, including songs by Poison, Motley Crue, Guns'n'Roses, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, Kiss, Aerosmith and more.

Tickets to Chrome Dragon cost $10 and can be purchased at the door or in advance by phoning the hotel on 3282 1222.

The Racehorse Hotel is at 215 Brisbane Rd, Booval, and doors to the show open at 7.30pm.

The event is strictly for people 18 years and older.
