Iconic ’80s New Wave Band SPANDAU BALLET haven’t made much new Music in a while, but their presence still v. much is felt on airwaves around the World. Their 1983 Single True would go-on to become a Hit internationally, earning them honours at the prestigious BRIT Awards. Although success wouldn’t quite surpass this stateside, the Band still would achieve great success in Europe with eight Top 10 Albums in the U.K.
Band Members Tony Hadley (Lead Vocals) and Martin Kemp (Bassist) were in Toronto today promoting their upcoming Soul Boys of the Western World Tour, which despite being postponed, hits Toronto’s Massey Hall on Monday, April 27, 2015. This Reunion has the original five Members back at it and is timed together with the release of their Documentary of the same name. Directed by George Hencken, the Film recounts how the Band formed, fell apart and also regained their friendships once again.
By absolute fluke, we made it right in the nick of time late in the day for a Snap together with the absolutely lovely Hadley, just as about he head to New York with Kemp. It was an absolute dream – I’d never have guessed as a Kid I’d one day get to meet someone whose voice I adored so much on the Radio! The Duo had a huge day, making the rounds about Toronto with Television, Print and Radio Press lined-up. The Band will appear on The TODAY Show bright and early for a performance in New York.
