The Buggles to play surprise London gig on Tuesday (October 25)

Trevor Horn's synth-pop pioneers to perform at London O2 on October 25

The Buggles will play a secret show in London on October 25.

The band, famed for having the first video played on MTV when it launched in 1981, will perform at the British Music Experience at London’s O2.

The Buggles originally reformed last year to play a one-off show, their first live performance. Despite forming in 1977, the band didn’t play live, instead focusing on work in the studio until their break-up in 1981.

After the disbandment, Horn went on to a successful career as a record producer, working with a host of ’80s pop acts such as ABC and Frankie Goes To Hollywood.

More recently, he’s produced Belle And Sebastian, Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, Pet Shop Boys and Seal.
