Dainty Consolidated Entertainment is thrilled to confirm that Spandau Ballet, one of the most successful and influential British bands of the 1980s, will tour Australia in April 2010.
All five original members of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp and Steve Norman have reformed after 20 years, delighting fans the world over. Last in Australia in 1985, Spandau Ballet kicked off their Reformation Tour in the UK in October and will be performing throughout much of Europe before they make their way Down Under in April.
From their synth pop and dance pioneering early singles To Cut A Long Story Short and Chant No. 1 (I Don’t Need This Pressure On), to the globetrotting smashes True and Gold, Spandau will be playing the hits once again.
Tears for Fears, made up of duo Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, enjoyed similar success in the 80s when British bands were setting the commercial and cultural bar in regards to pop music. They have sold in excess of 22 million albums worldwide spawning massive hits Everybody wants to rule the world, Shout and Head over Heels. Roland and Curt split in 1990 after their meteoric rise through the pop charts only to reunite and release a new album in 2004. Since then Tears for Fears continue to sell out shows throughout the world and maintain their status as one of pop music’s more productive musical collaborations.
Australian fans of both Spandau Ballet and Tears for Fears have hit the jackpot with this tour! Both bands were instrumental in defining music in the 80’s and audiences can prepare for a show that will unapologetically take them on a nostalgic trip to 1980s youth and pop music.
