Returning to touring for the first time since their 2009 Reformation tour which saw the band finally reunited, Spandau Ballet will be coming to Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena next March.

The tour, comes hot on the heels of the The Story – The Very Best of Spandau Ballet.

The album features all of the greatest hits plus three new songs produced by legendary record producer Trevor Horn including the radio smash This Is The Love and the band’s latest single, Steal.

Spandau Ballet are one of Britain’s great iconic bands having sold over 25 million records, scored numerous multi-platinum albums and amassed 23 hit singles across the globe since their humble beginnings as a group of friends with dreams of stardom in the late 1970s.

It wasn’t long before they became fully-fledged members of the iconic Blitz Club scene and established themselves as one of the super-groups of the 80s.

Tony Hadley, Steve Norman, Martin Kemp, John Keeble and Gary Kemp hit the ground running when their first single, To Cut A Long Story Short, was a top-five hit in the UK in 1980.

They went on to enjoy several more huge hits with songs like Gold, Through The Barricades and the number one True.

After two decades apart, the band reformed in 2009, embarking on a sold-out tour.

The recently-released film Soul Boys of the Western World, charted this return and has been the subject of critical acclaim.

Now, they are embarking on a 12-date arena tour and will be in Nottingham on 10th March.

Tickets priced £44.80, £58.50 and £72.80 are available now at the box office on 0843 3733000 or online at www.capitalfmarena.com/online/spandauballet
