With Andrew Lloyd Webber again having three musicals on Broadway — School of Rock, The Phantom of the Opera and Cats — it seemed a good time to look back on two tributes to the award-winning composer from the ’80s.

The first tribute was part of the 1981 Royal Variety Show and featured performances by London's then-Evita, Stephanie Lawrence; Lloyd Webber's brother, cellist Julian Lloyd Webber; and Elaine Paige, who was, at the time, starring in Cats. Watch the tribute below:

The 1985 Tony Awards also paid tribute to the internationally acclaimed composer with a segment featuring performances by Chita Rivera, Maureen McGovern and Dick Van Dyke. Watch the segment below:
