Spandau Star Set For Coventry

One of the 80's top stars is looking forward to his first performance in Coventry.

Tony HadleyEx-Spandau Ballet frontman Tony Hadley has rejoined with other former band members Steve Norman and John Keeble for a one-off UK tour.

The tour will include a gig at the SkyDome's Jumpin Jaks venue on Tuesday 15 May. The ex-Spandau trio will be joined on the bill by fellow 80's sensations Go West. The event is expected to be a 900 maximum capacity sell-out.

While with Spandau Ballet, Hadley toured the globe singing smash hits like 'Gold' and 'Through The Barricades', and has since embarked on a successful solo career - but Coventry has never before been a tour stop for him.

He said:

"It is quite surprising because Coventry is a big city but we never performed there with Spandau, and I have not sung their solo either.

"I have been to the city before to visit but it will be great to think that fans in the area who have not had a date nearby will get one all these years later."

And Hadley has urged fans of the former Spandau trio not to miss out on the live appearance - as it may never be repeated.

"The three of us have got together for fun and I honestly see singing like this as a holiday from my solo work which is very time consuming at the moment.

"We 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.

"This reunion is just about fun - so it should be a great night.

"I have been told that some of our songs are the most played tracks in Jaks, hopefully when the crowd hear us perform them live there will be a great reaction."

To ensure anyone going to the event gets full 'live experience' Hadley, Keeble and Norman will be backed by a full band.

Hadley said:

"To be fair they are a fantastic band and the sound in an intimate environment like Jaks should be phenomenal.

"The three of us are really looking forward to the date because we have a great time performing like this - we are still great friends and I think that shows on stage."

There are still some tickets for the Hadley, Norman and Keeble plus Go West show remaining, priced at 8.50 and available in person from the box office at the Jaks entrance or using major credit cards by calling 07000 353637.
