Tony Hadley has said he doesn't think his band Spandau Ballet will get back together anytime soon
Tony Hadley doesn't think Spandau Ballet will get back together.
The 56-year-old singer - who formed the band in 1976 with bandmates Gary and Martin Kemp, Steve Norman and John Keeble - feels it is "best" if the group, who had hits with the songs 'Gold', 'True' and 'Through the Barricades', don't reunite especially as they all have their own separate projects now.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Tony admitted: "We are off doing our own things now and I can't see, certainly not for the foreseeable future, Spandau getting back together again. We have done a massive tour and I think it's best left."
Tony is currently preparing for a solo run of shows featuring an orchestra and when asked if he thinks his bandmates will come down and see him perform, he said he doubted it because they are "family based".
He answered: "Probably not. They are very much family based in Spandau Ballet. So I don't think so. Although, the last time I played The Royal Albert Hall Gary and John came down which was really lovely of them so that's great."
The group reunited in 2015 for a world tour and have split up on-and-off over their career spanning more than three decades.
Meanwhile, guitarist Gary, 56, is busy working on a documentary on David Bowie's guitar player Mick Ronson, which is out later this year.
He previously said: "I've got a documentary I'm finishing about Mick Ronson, David's guitar player, about the glam rock era, which comes out on Sky Arts at the end of the year."
