Tony Hadley

The lead singer of Spandau Ballet performs classic hits including ‘Only When You Leave’, ‘Through the Barricades’ and ‘True’, with the accompaniment of a full orchestra.


Former Spandau Ballet frontman and successful solo artist

Born in Islington, Tony Hadley was greatly inspired by the music of Frank Sinatra. When he was 17 years old, Hadley not only saw Ol’ Blue Eyes perform at London’s Royal Albert Hall, but also managed to get backstage and shake his hand.

Not long after, Hadley co-founded and became the lead vocalist of Spandau Ballet. The members of the New Romantic band had all gone to school together. Spandau Ballet rose to prominence throughout the ’80s, having released eight top 10 UK albums and numerous top 10 singles including To Cut A Long Story Short, True, Gold, Only When You Leave and Through The Barricade.
