Spandau Ballet defined the 80’s in the way that The Who defined the 60’s, Bowie defined the 70’s and Oasisdefined the 90’s. They were not just about music; they were the epicenter of fashion, youth culture and spoke for an audience who previously had no voice.
They became one of the most commercially successful bands of the decade, notching up 23 hit singles and spending a combined total of in excess of 500 weeks in the UK charts, achieving album sales of over 25 million worldwide. Some of their songs, like ‘True’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Through the Barricades’, have become standards.
