Returning to touring for the first time since 2009, Spandau Ballet will be at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena next Friday (6th March) and Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena the following Tuesday (10th March).

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.

Tony Hadley, Steve Norman, Martin Kemp, John Keeble and Gary Kemp hit the ground running when their first single, To Cut A Long Story Short, was a top-five hit in the UK in 1980.

They went on to enjoy several more huge hits with songs like Gold, Through The Barricades and the number one True.

After two decades apart, the band reformed in 2009, embarking on a sold-out tour.

The recently-released film Soul Boys of the Western World, charted this return and has been the subject of critical acclaim.

Now, they are embarking on a 12-date arena tour.
