Issue:- 13 March 2015

Review:- "Spandau Ballet - Live in Liverpool"
Photographs by Jo Forrest.

 

ON Saturday, 7 March 2015, live at the Liverpool Echo Arena, in Liverpool, was 1 of Britain's great iconic bands, who have sold over 25 million records. 'Spandau Ballet' who band formed in London in the late 1970s still draw a crowd, and still can perform!

The night opened with DJ Rusty Egan supporting set list packed with retro and techno romanticism, the musical blend of past and present. Before long, the lights went down, and the arena was cast in blue as the curtain dropped and Hadley's iconic voice burst into life. And so began a nostalgic journey down a road paved with hits such as:- 'Through The Barricades', 'Instinction', and many more.

They performed to a packed arena and the hits of old were interspersed with new material as well as rear screen projections showing videos of the band from years ago. An acoustic set was performed half way through from the centre of the arena with just Tony Hadley and Gary Kemp before returning to the main stage.

It is hard to believe that it has been 35 years since Spandau Ballet debuted with:- 'To Cut A Long Story Short'. They did not disappoint the crowd, from Tony Hadley's crowd pleasing, the other band members certainly worked the stage, with Martin and Gary brothers grooving along to their guitar playing, to Steve Norman constantly swapping from one instrument to another and impressing the audience with his iconic saxophone solos and relentlessly intense bongo playing.
