40 years is worth celebrating! Tony Hadley is preparing to celebrate his entire career with a European tour event. It includes a unique date in Paris, scheduled at La Maroquinerie on December 11. Places are available.

Founding member of Spandau Ballet, a leading British group in the new wave movement, Tony Hadley puts his voice on real hits like “True”, “Gold” or “Through the Barricades”. Founded in 1979, the group broke up in 1990. The singer was thus able to stand on his own two feet by starting a solo career. He notably released the ballad “Lost In Your Love” as a single from his first album, The State Of Play, released in 1992.

He then branched out, playing with jazz groups and classical orchestras. Recognized, his talent earned him an award from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters in 2005.

A complete artist with a rich career, he will take advantage of this 40th anniversary to perform his greatest classics. Find a plethora of pieces, released under the Spandau Ballet label and under his own name. The unique concert planned in Paris will be an opportunity to appreciate the unique timbre of this artist, whose appearances are rare in France.
