SPANDAU BALLET ñ THE 80s PHENOMENON
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 ìGoldî, ìOnly When You Leaveî, ìLifelineî, the epic ìThrough the Barricadesî and of course the international number one ìTrueî; the latter famously sampled by PM Dawn in 1991 and featured on Paul Ankaís Rock Swings in 2005.
As lead singer of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley has, over the years, earned the accolade of being one of pop musicís greatest vocalists. In addition to all the bandís songs, many will remember his prominent vocal contribution to the Band Aid UK charity single ìDo They Know Itís Christmasî and subsequent 1985 London appearance at Live Aid. He also performed solo at the Nelson Mandela Concert at Wembley in June 1988.
