Deborah “Debbie” Gibson and Tiffany Darwish have announced their joint tour, with the first stop being Westbury, New York on July 29th. Called “Journey Through the 80s”, their tour will feature both the individual songs that earned the ladies top ten hits in the late eighties and early nineties, but also covers of songs by artists Stevie Nicks, Reba McIntyre and Guns N’ Roses.

Gibson rose to fame with her albums Out of the Blue and Electric Youth released in 1987 and 1989, respectively. While both albums earned her top ten hits and remarkable album sales, her song, Foolish Beat, earned her recognition as the youngest female to write, produce, and perform a number one single. She has continued to record, releasing albums, Anything Is Possible, Body Mind Soul, Think With Your Heart, Deborah, M.Y.O.B., Colored Lights: The Broadway Album, and Ms. Vocalist. In 2006, she recorded Say Goodbye with Jordan Knight which is featured on his album, Love Songs.

Aside from her music and her multiple acting roles in musical theater, Gibson maintains her Gibson Girl Foundation, which has awarded over $75,000 in scholarships for needy children so that they can further develop their musical talent. She also oversees the Electric Youth summer and winter camps which provide advanced performing arts training to youths aged 10 to 20 years of age.

While she was seen most recently seen performing at Perez Hilton’s 30th birthday party, Gibson can be found frequently on twitter gushing about her favorite television shows and music groups.

Singing from the time she was four years-old, Tiffany rose to fame through her Star Search performance in 1985 and “The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour” in 1987. The month before her 16th birthday, Tiffany released her self-titled debut album which peaked at number one on the billboard charts. Similar to Gibson, she is recognized as the youngest artist to have a debut album chart at number one. And, like Gibson, she has never stopped singing.

To date, Tiffany has released 8 albums, including Tiffany, Hold an Old Friend’s Hand, New Inside, Dreams Never Die, The Color of Silence, Dust Off and Dance, Just Me, and Rose Tattoo.

In addition to her music, Tiffany has also added film acting to her repertoire. In 2004, she starred in the Film Psychosis short, The Isolationist.

Both Tiffany and Gibson were seen bringing the height of their rivalry to the screen in the 2011 sci-fi, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. This isn’t the first time the two have shared the stage either. In 2009, Gibson played the piano while Tiffany sang her hit, What Could Have Been.

While a complete list of tour dates has yet to be released, tickets for the Westbury show are available for purchase. Fans can follow Deborah Gibson and Tiffany Darwish on twitter to stay up to date on their upcoming tour.
