Spandau Ballet are one of Britain’s great iconic bands having sold over 25 million records, scored numerous multi-platinum albums and amassed 23 hit singles across the globe since their humble beginnings as a group of friends with dreams of stardom in the late 1970s. It wasn’t long before they became fully-fledged members of the iconic Blitz Club scene and established themselves as one of the super-groups of the '80s.
They found international fame with their smash hit singles True and Gold, and enjoyed a successful pop career throughout most of the decade. After the band split, Gary and Martin Kemp turned their hands to film and TV acting (Martin was best known for his role in Eastenders) and Tony Hadley continued to perform as a solo artist.
After two decades apart, the band reformed in 2009, embarking on a sold-out tour. However, Tony Hadley announced in July 2017 that he was no longer a member of Spandau Ballet. The remaining members Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp, Steve Norman and John Keeble, plan to continue as a band with new frontman, Ross William Wild added to the line up.
