Remember Spandau Ballet?News Saturday, March 15th, 2014
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ It’s been nearly three decades since Spandau Ballet played in the United States. After a successful return to America at South By
Southwest, members of the influential British pop group now wonder why they stayed away for so long.
“We’re sorry we left it 28 years,” band member Gary Kemp said.
The recently reunited band played their SXSW show Wednesday at Vulcan Gas Company. It was a sweaty, close affair, and one that left the band _ who in the 1980s had a hit record and single both titled “True”_ excited about its future reunion prospects.
The group, which also includes Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Martin Kemp and Steve Norman, also debuted a new career-spanning documentary “Soul Boys of the Western World” at the festival.
The George Hencken-directed film filters the vibrant London 1980s music scene through the band’s story.
