A Few Good Reasons to Buy Spandau Ballet Tickets on TicketIQ.com
Its “true”, Britain’s biggest pop band of yesterday are back and making a return to the stage. Gary Kemp, Steve Norman, Tony Hadley, John Keeble, and Martin Kemp were five high school friends that would become an intrinsic part to Britain’s new wave scene. The comrades sifted through a number of styles and band names until 1978 when they settled on their power pop style and dubbed themselves the “Spandau Ballet”. Spandau ballet tickets were sold around London and gained the group promising local exposure. Positive reception led to a bidding war for the young group, won by Chrysalis Records. Their first record “To Cut a Long Story Short” immediately became a top 5 hit in Britain, one of ten in the group’s successful run. This led to the release of their first album Journeys to Glory in 1981. The album was certified gold and mesmerized listeners with their unique but catchy synth-pop style of play. Spandau’s follow up Diamond would also attain gold certification but failed to reach the success of the group’s first album. The funk-infused single “Chant No.1” however, managed to chart at 17 on the dance charts in the US. Finely tuning their sound, the group released their third effort, True in March, 1983. The album and notable title track quickly became No.1 across the world. Compelling piano over pop-synths, hypnotic vocals, and empowering lyrics solidified Spandau Ballet as one of the most popular bands out of the UK. The group rose to new heights as their hit “True” stayed at number one on the UK Singles Chart for over four weeks, and charting in over 20 countries. The recognizable ballad has been sampled numerous times and commonly spotted in movies and television to this day. Shows were in high demand as Spandau Ballet tickets sold out for five consecutive dates at the historic Wembley Arena in London, 1986. That year, the group went platinum with the release of The Singles Collection, A compilation of the bands classics. The Spandau Ballet signed with CBS records that year in an effort to stray from pop and shift the focus to rock and roll. The album Fight For Ourselves was a hit in Europe and Australia but failed to entice American listeners. Group differences led to the boys disbanding leaving Spandau Ballet fans hungry for more. Gary Kemp, guitarist and songwriter of the band went on to appear in films and release solo music of his own. In the 90s, the group found itself in court battling over royalties. Putting differences aside, Spandau Ballet tickets went on sale nearly twenty years later as the band reunited for a eight date UK tour. The overwhelming interest of fans led to more tour dates and the comeback album, Once More. Their impressive return to music won them Virgin Media’s “Best Comeback of 2009” award. Recently, the band has returned to promote their documentary following the group and the 80s culture they grew up in. Spandau Ballet tickets go on sale this year as they embark on what could be their final world tour.
