The mystery project has already caught the imagination of the band’s loyal fanbase, who have stuck by the group since their 80s heyday. They were one of the most successful groups of the New Romantic era of British pop, and, along with acts such as Duran Duran, were part of the Second British Invasion of the United States in the 80s, selling 25 million albums and having 23 hit singles worldwide, among them True, Gold, To Cut A Long Story Short and Only When You Leave. The band have also had eight UK top 10 albums, including three greatest hits compilations and an album of re-recorded material.
This new project seems set to cap off that run with a retrospective look at what led the band from London’s Blitz club to Top Of The Pops and stages all over the world. Plenty of fans were there to witness that journey, but while it’s the sort of tale that would have been finitely documented in the social-media age, the group’s shout-out relies on the foresight of those most dedicated fans for whom Spandau Ballet not only straddled the world – they were the very centre of it.
