Ex-Spandau Ballet frontman Tony Hadley will bring his 40th anniversary tour to Carlisle next year.
Hadley will perform tracks from across his career, both as the voice of Spandau Ballet and as a solo artist.
Performing with The Fabulous TH Band, Hadley’s 36-date tour will call in at the Sands Centre on Thursday, May 26.
The tour was originally planned for 2020 and had to be postponed due to coronavirus.
Spandau Ballet had several chart-topping singles and albums all over the world in the 1980s, including Through the Barricades, the international number one True, and the unofficial London Olympics theme Gold.
As a solo artist, he has performed across the world both with his band, swing bands, and orchestras.
In 2005 he was awarded a Gold Badge from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters and in 2007 he appeared as Billy Flynn in Chicago on the West End stage.
In 2018 Tony released solo album Talking To The Moon, which became BBC Radio 2’s Album Of The Week and the first single Tonight Belongs To Us was Single Of The Week.
He received an MBE in December 2019 in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for his charitable work for the Shooting Star Children’s Hospice.
Hadley presents a radio show on BBC 3 Counties Radio and started a podcast and YouTube channel with Jim Cregan, rock guitarist, songwriter and producer and Alex Dyke, veteran British broadcaster.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 11.
