See www.lythamproms.co.uk/ for further information.
As lead singer of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley has, over the years, earned the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists. Pioneers of the '80s Romantic movement, Spandau Ballet had numerous chart topping singles and albums all over the world, the most memorable being the singles "Gold" and the international number one "True", the latter famously sampled by PM Dawn in 1991.
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'.

Iconic singer and political debater, Somerville is the man with the unmistakable voice who fronted Bronski Beat and The Communards in the 80s with such hits of 'Small Town Boy' and 'Don't Leave Me This Way'. He continues today as a solo artist producing new material, but still peforming the old classics.
Jimmy Somerville tour dates
Former frontman of Soft Cell, now well established as a solo artist. Following a brief Soft Cell reunion in 2001, Marc Almond went on to develop a successful career as an international DJ specialising in electro-clash.
Marc Almond tour dates
The brainchild of Martyn Ware and born from the collapse of the original Human League, 80's synth pioneers Heaven 17 have stood the test of time and been an influence on the future of modern music for over thirty years. Their debut 1981 album, 'Penthouse And Pavement', was, and remains, a modern classic. Glenn Gregory and Martyn continue to perform the hits from their overwhelming back catalogue, including 'Temptation' and '(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang', along with unveiling their first new material in 12 years.
Heaven 17 tour dates
Odyssey's fusion of seventies disco and Caribbean rhythms, makes them as popular today as they were in the days of their original success. During the early eighties, Odyssey took disco to another level, infusing it with worldly rhythms and stylish beats. Their hits include classics such as Use It Up And Wear It Out, Inside Out and Going Back To My Roots.
Odyssey tour dates
One of the brightest stars in the 80s new wave sky, Altered Images are best remembered for their no.1 single 'Happy Birthday'. Their bubbly lead singer Claire Grogan originally shot to fame in the film 'Gregory's Girl', then later went on to appear in 'Red Dwarf', 'EastEnders', 'Skins' and was a presenter on music station VH1.
Altered Images tour dates
Bubbly, bouncy Scouse songstress who achieved multiple chart successes in the early '90s.
Sonia tour dates
'80s heartthrob Jason Donovan won nearly every Australian award during his time on Aussie soap Neighbours, and the hearts of millions. His vocal career began in 1988 when he released 'Especially for You' with Kylie Minogue and a debut solo album 'Ten Good Reasons'. Following the release of his second album in 1989, Jason became the biggest selling UK and European artist. He kicked off a successful West End career in 1991 with a starring role as Joseph in 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' at the Palladium. He's since gone on to star in productions such as 'The Rocky Horror' UK Tour during the show's 25th anniversary and Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert', as well as coming third in the 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing.
