Emerging from London’s famous Blitz Club off Covent Garden in the late 1970s, the band is one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1980s with 20 hit singles, over 20 million albums sold worldwide and an incredible 500 weeks on the UK charts. In 2014, Spandau Ballet was honoured with the PRS for Music Heritage Award at the Blitz Club, which played a pivotal role in launching their legendary musical career amongst others including Boy George and Pete Burns.  

Following a 20-year hiatus after their split in 1990, the band reunited in 2009 and released their seventh studio album Once More that entered the UK Top 10.

Their much-anticipated reunion has seen them sell out 13 Arena shows in the UK including three nights at the O2 Arena in London. In the same year, Spandau Ballet was honoured as the Best Comeback of 2009 in the Virgin Media Awards. Last year, the quintet released a critically lauded ‘Soul Boys of the Western World’ documentary, charting their journey through the 1980s and beyond. The film premiered at SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas and was featured at the Rome Film Festival, Film Fest Gent and DOC NYC.  The UK premiere hit at a sold out Royal Albert Hall in London were the band came together on stage for the first time since 2010 to celebrate.

They also released Spandau Ballet The Story…. an Ultimate Hits hits collection featuring 3 brand new songs produced by the legendary Trevor Horn.

The 2015 Soul Boys of the Western World Tour began in the USA in January where the band played their first tour dates for 30 years, uniting critics and fans alike in praise.
