Ultimate Power – celebrating the greatest power ballads

ULTIMATE POWER is a club night at The Ritz celebrating power ballads...

ULTIMATE POWER is a high-octane club night celebrating the greatest power ballads of all time. Expect to hear huge songs from Bonnie Tyler, Bon Jovi, Meatloaf, Phil Collins and Guns & Roses.

Due to the huge success of The Ultimate Power Christmas Party, selling out a week in advance, they’re delighted to announce their return to the Ritz on Friday 21st February for another massive party.

“As high octane as it is infectious – it’s taking over the capital” – Time Out

“A fun-as-fuck communal club experience” – NME

“Stupendously successful… a night dedicated to the glory of the Power Ballad” – Guardian

The journey started seven years ago as an occasional night dedicated to the glory of Power Ballads above a now demolished pub in the middle of a council estate in Camden, Ultimate Power has now become a clubbing institution in Manchester.

2013 has been an astonishing year for Ultimate Power, a collective of five friends based in London. After five years carefully building and nurturing the club from humble beginnings, in December 2010 their bid for world domination hit Manchester.

Ultimate Power is, quite simply, an evening of the greatest songs ever written. A communal appreciation of colossal musical compositions from the titans of Power Ballads; messrs Collins, Loaf, Tyler and Jovi and many, many more besides. Every single song is a classic, every single song is known and loved by all, and every single song is never played at any other club night in the world except Ultimate Power. The joyous, harmonious atmosphere is unlike any other club in the UK; it is no exaggeration to say that it is a truly life-changing experience.
