Tony Hadley Announces Special 'Hits Of Spandau Ballet' UK Live Dates

Tony Hadley has announced three very special shows performing hits of Spandau Ballet with a full orchestra conducted by the legendary Anne Dudley.

Pioneers of the 80s Romantic movement, Spandau Ballet formed in 1978 and had numerous chart topping singles and albums all over the world, some of the most memorable being the singles 'Gold', 'Only When You Leave', 'Lifeline', the epic 'Through the Barricades' and of course the international number one 'True'.

As lead singer of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley has, over the years, earned the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists. As a solo artist in his own right who has spent the past twenty years entertaining audiences all over the world with his stunning rich voice that has lost none of its power.

To date Tony has released four solo studio albums; ‘State of Play’ on EMI Records, two albums through Universal Records, a self-titled album in 1998, and ‘True Ballads’ in 2003. In 2006, on his own label, Slipstream Records, he released his long-awaited swing album ‘Passing Strangers’.

More recently Spandau Ballet reformed in April 2009, and their sold out ‘Reformation Tour’ kicked off in October 2009 with 13 UK Arenas, including three nights at London’s O2, followed by Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain, then on to Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UAE. The tour ended in June 2010 with the band performing their first festival date at the Isle Of Wight.

2012 was also a big year for Tony with highlights including performing in front of The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge in the “Our Greatest Team Rises", he performed at Team GB House for both our Olympic and Paralympic athletes on the Closing Ceremony nights with 'Gold' becoming the unofficial Athletes song and also had successful solo shows in Japan, the first since his Spandau Ballet days.

Tony’s 2013 diary is currently filling up as his popularity increases both nationally and internationally. Right now he is busy writing and recording for his new album, with a new single out this spring. A series of Country House shows and Festivals in the UK commence in May.

After conducting the critically acclaimed ABC ‘Lexicon of Love’ live shows; Anne Dudley along with the Southbank Sinfonia Orchestra will accompany Tony on these very special shows this October:
