TONY Hadley has announced a big UK tour to celebrate 40 years in the music business.

The 61-year-old former Spandau Ballet star is celebrating four decades since he first released music with his former band Spandau Ballet.

Tony will perform 36 gigs across the country in 2022 with his band The Fabulous TH Band.

Tony’s unmistakeable voice still brims with passion and urgency as it first did all those years ago.

One of the biggest voices in pop, Tony will perform tracks from across his career both as the voice of Spandau Ballet, and as a solo artist.

From his beginnings at the forefront of the new romantic movement, Tony earned himself the accolade of being one of pop’s greatest vocalists.

Spandau Ballet had numerous chart-topping singles and albums all over the world, including the epic Through the Barricades, the international number one True, and the unofficial London Olympics theme Gold.

As a solo artist Tony 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; whilst 2007 saw him win a new legion of fans when he appeared as Billy Flynn in Chicago on the West End stage.

Tony Hadley celebrating 40 years in the music business

In 2018 Tony released his highly anticipated solo album Talking To The Moon, The album was incredibly well received and became BBC Radio 2’s Album Of The Week and the 1st single Tonight Belongs To Us was single of the week.

Last year Tony released the brand new single Obvious, co-written with Talking To The Moon Mick Lister, which was again playlisted on BBC Radio 2.

Alongside his music career, not to mention his work in broadcasting on both radio and TV, Tony 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.

Tony presents a live Sunday morning radio show on BBC 3 Counties Radio, and started a podcast and Youtube channel in July 2020 called Stars Cars Guitars with award-winning rock guitarist, songwriter and producer Jim Cregan and veteran British broadcaster Alex Dyke.

The podcast features the trio talking about rock and roll adventures, their favourite cars and tales of the stars and friends they met on the way and touches upon the themes of success, fame, family, laughter, memories and dreams.
