Tony Hadley Gives Australia A 40th Anniversary Party

This is Tony Hadley’s 40th Anniversary Tour but it covers a lot more than the last 40 years. The oldest song in the set, Frank Sinatra’s ‘One For My Baby’ goes back nearly 80 years. Chuck Berry’s ‘Carol’ is over 60 years old. Yes, it has been 41 years since that first Spandau Ballet album but Tony Hadley is putting this show in context. He is taking it back to where it all started for him.
