Scene News: Spandau Ballet commence their Australian tour next week

After blowing audiences away on their recent world, legendary UK band Spandau Ballet arrive in Australia next Tuesday to commence their national tour, ‘Soul Boys of the Western World’.

The band will perform live on Sunrise on Tuesday 12th May before heading to Brisbane to commence the tour on Wednesday.

Critics have been raving about the show:

“It was an acoustic singalong of GOLD that really raised the arena roof, 20,000 voices joyously belting out “you’re indestructible” revelling in pop’s magical power apparently to suspend time itself.”
Daily Telegraph 20.3.15

“The sound was immaculate, the staging sleek and the five original members present, correct and genially engaged.” The Times 18/03/15

“With Mist rising beneath their feet and aerial images of seas and rainforests on the screens behind, the band soared into a transcendent closing sequence including I’ll Fly for You, Communication, Lifeline and True before returning for an encore of Through The Barricades. Setting the Gold standard in arena soul-boy rock once again.” The Times 18/03/15

From mass sing-a longs and pure audience adoration, Newcastle’s show proved there is still a huge appeal for the ‘old romantics’.” Newcastle Chronicle Online 20/03/15

“Remarkably well preserved and stylishly suited, the ballet boys were on fine form, from Hadley’s soaring pipes to swooning silver fox Martin Kemp attracting the biggest cheers from the ladies.”
Newcastle Chronicle Online 20/03/15

“With eight UK Top 10 albums and 25 million records sold, you knew you were in for a good show and the Lahndon boys didn’t disappoint.” Manchester Evening News 15/3/15

All five original band members of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp and Steve Norman will perform their smash-hit anthems for Australian audiences for the first time since their 2010 Reformation World Tour which saw the band reunited.
