If you grew up in the 1980s like I did, you remember when Spandau Ballet ruled the world.  Smash hits like “True,” “Communication” and “Gold” dominated MTV and were played on the radio constantly – and for good reason – they sound just as great now as they did then.  Spandau Ballet front man Tony Hadley has continued making music, both with and without the group, has appeared on the West End stage as crooked lawyer Billy Flynn in “Chicago” and has spent a lot of time working with charitable causes.  He even has his own brand of beer!  This week, Tony Hadley is embarking on a new adventure – his first ever solo tour of the United States!  (Tour dates are below).

Last week, I had the great privilege of speaking with Tony Hadley while he was in Mallorca, Spain, as he got a little rest and relaxation in while in preparation for the tour.  During our conversation, he opened up about everything from an upcoming collaboration with another musical icon to the status of Spandau Ballet.  It was absolutely delightful to speak with Tony.  I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to talk with one of my musical heroes and to find out some of the answers to the questions that both myself and my readers have been burning to find out.  Thanks to everyone who sent in questions via Facebook and Twitter and extra special thanks to Tony Hadley for his sincerity and for all the great music he’s given the world – past, present and future.
