Tony created Spandau Ballet along with his classmates and they achieved international success, with Hadley as the lead singer, showcasing his astonishing vocal range. They had numerous chart-topping singles including ‘Through the Barricades’, ‘True’ and ‘Gold’, which was London’s unofficial Olympic theme song.

His solo career has been equally impressive. He started shortly after the band’s split in the 1990 and has since produced and performed around the world. His solo album ‘Talking to the Moon’ was released in 2018 and was incredibly well received - it became BBC Radio 2’s Album of the Week. His latest single ‘Obvious’ was released in June, 2020, and his daughter Zara helped to shoot and direct it. His work over the years has led to numerous awards: in 2005, the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters awarded him a Gold Badge.

He has also performed as Billy Flynn in Chicago on the West End stage in 2007 and currently presents a live Sunday morning radio show on BBC 3 Counties Radio. During lockdown, he utilised his time to create a podcast and Youtube channel called ‘Stars Cars Guitars’ with Jim Cregan (award-winning rock guitarist, songwriter and producer) and Alex Dyke (veteran, British broadcaster on the tv and radio). The podcast features the trio talking about their rock and roll adventures, favourite cars and tales of the stars and friends they met on the way.

Tony Hadley has a legendary, melodious and romantic style voice. His 40th Anniversary tour next year is not to be missed for fans and new listeners alike, so be sure to get tickets here.
