Spandau Ballet Announces First US Tour & Single in More Than 30 Years
Spandau Ballet, one of the most successful and influential British bands, announce their Soul Boys of the Western World Tour. The tour marks the first time the band will tour North America in nearly 30 years. All five original members – Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp and Steve Norman – will once again captivate fans on this long-awaited and long overdue return. The tour will kicked off January in San Francisco, CA at the famed Warfield Theatre and traverse the continent before winding down in Red Bank, NJ at the Count Basie Theatre.
Spandau Ballet recently released their first single in the United States since the ’80s with “This Is The Love.” The song, produced by the legendary Trevor Horn, is available now on the band’s new greatest hits album The Story… The track has received a tremendous reaction from fans and critics alike, being put into “A-List” Rotation on BBC Radio 2 in the U.K.
“We are over the moon at rediscovering our friendship and are really looking forward to playing live in the US again,” said Tony Hadley. “Playing live is what we do best! The shows will have all the hits and more.”
From their synth pop and dance pioneering early singles “To Cut A Long Story Short” and “Chant No. 1 (I Don’t Need This Pressure On),” to the globe trotting smashes “True” and “Gold,” Spandau will be playing the hits once again. With 25 million record sales, 6 multi-platinum albums and 23 hit singles to choose from, this is one of the most eagerly awaited reunions to hit these shores in years.
“We are tremendously excited about coming back to America to perform,” said Gary Kemp. “We have great memories of our shows there in the 80s and can’t wait re-connect with our amazing fans there.”
