Renowned 1970s American disco group Village People will perform at The Venetian Theatre on May 12 and 13 as part of its 40th anniversary tour.

Founding members Felipe Rose and Alexander Briley will perform.

Regarded as the most successful and authentic tribute act of all time, Björn Again has performed in more than 100 countries around the world, often in famous venues such as the Sydney Opera House and London’s Wembley Stadium.
