    A comical 80s gig takes place on a British Airways flight.

    It's tough to pass time on a flight but some airlines do occasionally get creative.

    Well British Airways is giving travelers a chance to experience a few pop star wonders from the Eighties.

    Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley, Go West, Kim Wilde and Bananarama are a few of the musicians slated to make an appearance and perform live on an upcoming flight. Set to take place on March 10th, 2013 the performance will break a Guinness World Record to become the highest concert, in regards to elevation.

    James Blunt currently holds the title with his show that was put on at 42,080 feet in the air. The flight crew will be decked out in their original uniforms of the era and the gig comes with the catch phrase - "The Eighties are back, with altitude".

    The proceeds of the new concert will all go to Comic Relief, which is a large charity based in the United Kingdom. Working to rid the world of poverty and social injustice, the organization reportedly has raised over 800 million pounds, through campaigns that often involve comedians and famous celebrities performing hilarious acts and shows, as well as their sponsored sports campaigns.
