Tony Hadley Announces Orchestra Shows

Tony Hadley has added four orchestral gigs to his 40th-anniversary tour.

Hadley is heading out on the road in 2022, four decades since Tony first released music with his former band Spandau Ballet – who he left in 2017 following their 2009 reunion.

The singer, who will perform with his The Fabulous TH Band, had already announced 36 dates across the UK, beginning on March 1 in Bexhill and concluding at the Blackpool Opera House on May 27 next year.

And now, Tony has added new dates for October 2022 in Manchester, Southend, Birmingham, and wrapping at the legendary London Palladium on October 25, which will see him accompanied by a full live orchestra.

Tony will perform tracks from across his career both as the voice of Spandau Ballet, and as a solo artist.

Spandau Ballet – also comprised of John Keeble, Gary Kemp, Steve Norman and Martin Kemp – were at the forefront of the New Romantic movement in the 1980s and they topped the charts all over the globe with hit songs such as ‘Through the Barricades’, ‘True’ and ‘Gold’.

As a solo artist Tony has performed across the world both with his band, swing bands and orchestras and has released five solo LPs, including 2018’s ‘Talking to the Moon’.

In 2005, he was awarded a Gold Badge from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters; whilst 2007 saw him win a new legion of fans when he appeared as Billy Flynn in Chicago on the West End stage.

Tony – who started his hugely popular podcast and YouTube channel ‘Stars Cars’ Guitars’ in July 2020 – recently claimed the secret to his longevity as a singer and good health is down to the fact he has never taken drugs, due to a promise he made to his grandmother.

He said: “I made a promise to my grandmother when I was 16 or 17.

“I’ve never done any of that stuff, and I thank her for that. It was a promise well made.”
