Spandau Ballet - This Is The Love
Tony, Gary, Martin, Steve and John had their first top 10 in 1981 with ‘To Cut A Long Story Short’. In 1983 the band enjoyed their only Number 1 single with ‘True’ as the album of the same name also went to the top of the chart. Their last top 40 hit was in 1987. Three years later the band split acrimoniously with the Kemp brothers playing lead roles in the film ‘The Krays’ before Martin Kemp joined the cast of Eastenders. Tony Hadley won the reality TV show ‘Reborn In The USA’ in 2003. In 2009 the band announced they were re-forming after a press call on HMS Belfast on the River Thames and later released their 7th studio album ‘Once More’. ‘This Is Love’ is one of 3 new tracks from their new Greatest Hits album all produced by Trevor Horn. They also have a new documentary film titled ‘Soul Boys Of The Western World’ which was shown earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival.
