➢ Oh the irony! At the ultimate Duran Duran fansite, Rhonda reviews Spandau Ballet live in Los Angeles 2015
“ I have to give Spandau credit: they are the real deal. They PLAY… and any backing used is incredibly minimal compared to many other bands. Tony Hadley has a better voice live than nearly any vocalist I’ve ever heard, and I’m sure the Jack he used for toasting the audience does nothing to hurt him, either. I can’t really say enough about Tony’s vocal talent OR the rest of the band. Steve Norman is a sax GOD, not to mention a world-class percussionist, of course Gary and Martin Kemp are the backbone of the band along with John Keeble on drums.
“ There was something really heartwarming as I watched fans scream with glee as Tony broke into Chant No 1 (I Don’t Need This Pressure On) or the way the entire audience sang True with the band. . . As we waited in line outside, I halfway listened as the people in back of us talked about the trek they were making to follow the band on their tour across the country, and how they talked about members of the band as though they were old friends. It reminded me so much of the “relationship” Duran fans have with the band. As much as we might be different – Spandau fans and Duran fans – we’re really the same. . .” / Continued online at the Daily Duranie
Thankful that I have Shapers of the eighties to get me Spandau fix in the morning before I have to deal with my work emails … great insight as always guys … Duran Duran and Spandau would make an incredible world tour together!
I absolutely agree, just imagine: two greatest bands from the 80s share a stage, wow!!
I think it could be a possibility some time… both bands respect each other and like each other… it would be something amazing… cheers
