Featuring

Tony Hadley

Tony Hadley appearing at this event

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 continued entertaining audiences with his stunning rich voice that has lost none of its power. He released his first solo album back in 1992 and has continued to release albums sporadically, including a jazz/swing album and a Christmas album.

Bonnie Tyler

Bonnie Tyler appearing at this event

The Welsh wonder, perhaps still best known for her classic 1983 single and iconic video; 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart' and 1984's 'Holding Out For A Hero' from the soundtrack to the film 'Footloose'. Bonnie also represented England in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2013 with 'Believe In Me', which although failing to score highly in the contest, has now become a live favourite, adding to her already large back catalogue of work. When she isn't getting 'lost in France', Bonnie continues to perform and tour.

ABC

ABC appearing at this event

ABC were one of those groups who come along once a decade to effect a paradigm shift in the way music is heard and made, one of those groups who move the music forward, alerting us to the possibilities of strange combinations, employing radical ideas yet never confusing arrogance with ambition. They kick-started the Eighties with their own brand of pop for the new decade. Fusing dance floor finesse with a post-punk attitude they released their first single, ‘Tears Are Not Enough’, in the autumn of 1981. More hits followed in rapid succession. ‘Poison Arrow’, ‘The Look Of Love’ and ‘All Of My Heart’. On its release in May 1982 their debut album ‘The Lexicon of Love’ crashed straight into the album charts at number one. Although they continued to release more albums over the years, they eventually made an acclaimed sequel to their debut, releasing 'The Lexicon of Love II' in 2017. ABC continue to tour extensively throughout the world, playing sell-out concerts from London‘s Royal Albert Hall to California’s Hollywood Bowl. Whether performing as a band, or performing with an Orchestra, Martin Fry remains the consummate show man.
