British band Spandau Ballet, best known in America for their top 10 single “True”, have announced their Soul Boys of the Western World Tour. The tour, in support of their recently released greatest hits collection titled The Story, The Very Best of Spandau Ballet, marks the first time the band will tour North America in nearly 30 years.
All five original members – Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp and Steve Norman – will once again captivate fans on this long-awaited and long overdue return. The Soul Boys of the Western World tour will kick off in San Francisco, CA at the famed Warfield Theatre and traverse the continent before winding down in Red Bank, NY at the Count Basie Theatre.
“We are over the moon at rediscovering our friendship and are really looking forward to playing live in the US again,” said Tony Hadley. “Playing live is what we do best! The shows will have all the hits and more.”
Spandau Ballet made their U.S. late night television debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. Their performance on the show marked the first time the band has performed on television in the United States since 1985 when they made an appearance on Soul Train.
