Tony Hadley + The Rainband
As lead singer of Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley had, over the years, earned the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists. He has continued to write and record, and to date has released five solo studio albums.
Pioneers of the 80s Romantic movement, Spandau Ballet formed in 1978 and had numerous chart topping singles and albums all over the world, some of the most memorable being the singles “Gold”, “Only When You Leave”, “Lifeline”, the epic “Through the Barricades” and of course the international number one “True”
By the mid-80s they were world-wide superstars, however, relationships cracked and the band split in 1990. However they reformed in 2009 for the “Reformation Tour”, a worldwide tour that included three sell-out nights at London’s O2 and their first festival date at The Isle of Wight Festival.
Support comes from : The Rainband
Founded in 2011 by frontman Martin Finnigan and guitarist Phil Rainey (former band mate of Peter Hook in Monaco), the band became a four piece when drummer Steve Irlam and multi-instrumentalist Joe Wilson joined the ranks, recently growing into a five piece with new addition bassist Sam Wilson.
The band have earned rave reviews from the likes of Liam Gallagher and Jim Kerr and are an established name on Manchester’s music scene. Following tours and support slots with legendary acts such as Simple Minds, Ocean Colour Scene and The Kaiser Chiefs, the Rainband received an invitation to the British Music Awards as Rising Stars handpicked by O2.
