successful solo career - but Coventry has never before been a tour
stop for him.
is quite surprising because Coventry is a big city but we never
performed there with Spandau, and I have not sung their solo

think that fans in the area who have not had a date nearby will
get one all these years later."
Hadley has urged fans of the former Spandau trio not to miss out on
the live appearance - as it may never be repeated.

will certainly never do another album or start releasing new
singles, we are happy getting up on stage and treating people to
the hits they loved before.
reunion is just about fun - so it should be a great night.

in Jaks, hopefully when the crowd hear us perform them live there
will be a great reaction."

environment like Jaks should be phenomenal.

a great time performing like this - we are still great friends and
I think that shows on stage."
