The legendary David Hasselhoff stars in the new musical Last Night a DJ Saved My Life which is at Royal & Derngate on Friday and Saturday as part of a 13 week UK tour.

The Hoff plays Ross, a hilarious hedonist. He’s Ibiza’s top 1980s DJ who doesn’t realise a new decade has dawned and that disco is out and the club scene is in.

Ross tries to keep up with the times with Mandy, his new younger girlfriend but matters are complicated when his teenage daughter Penny arrives to stay.

The show is a story of two generations colliding set against a background of sun, sea, sex, drugs and music from the 80s and 90s.

Underscoring the story are a string of hits including The Only Way is Up, Spice Up Your Life, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and the theme from Baywatch. The show is described as Mamma Mia on speed, or Friends meeting Ibiza Uncovered. Performances are on Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7 at 7.30pm.

Advance tickets cost from £17 to £36 before fees are available by calling 01604 624811 or at www.royalandderngate.co.uk
