A RESURGENCE of interest in the sounds of the eighties has led to a new lease of life for singer Paul Young's career.
The former pop idol, who frequently played at The Horn in St Albans - then the Horn of Plenty - before he became famous, will shortly be touring nationwide again with a nostalgia show called Here and Now The Very Best of the 80s.
Back in the late 70s Paul, a former apprentice at Vauxhall's car factory in Luton, frequently headlined at the the Victoria Street pub.
Our picture - taken on January 10, 1979 - shows Paul on stage with Streetband. Hansi Koppe, music promoter at the popular venue, said: "We have been lucky enough to book Paul just before his tour starts."

Other eighties stars featuring in the Here and Now shows include Rick Astley, Curiosity Killed the Cat, Bananarama and ABC.
