Tony Hadley lascia gli Spandau Ballet. In un comunicato del cantante si legge:
Due to circumstances beyond my control, it is with deep regret that I am required to state that I am no longer a member of the band Spandau Ballet and as such I will not be performing with the band in the future.
Subito dopo è arrivato quello della band:
Much to our frustration, Tony had made it clear in September 2016 that he didn’t want to work with the band anymore. This has not changed and 2015 was the last time we were able to perform or work with him. So we have now made the decision to move on as a band.
La formazione inglese si era riformata con successo nel 2009 dopo lo split di inizio anni ’90. Tour, raccolta antologica, documentario, celebrazioni. L’ultimo show di Hadley rimane datato 2015.
