Spandau Ballet first came to the forefront of the music business back in 1979. After a break from 1990 onwards they’re now back on tour and making music again. That means you have a great chance of getting tickets to see them – if you know how to find them.
If you grew up in the Eighties you may well remember Spandau Ballet when they first burst onto the music scene. There are five members of the band, fronted by Tony Hadley the lead singer. The two Kemp brothers, Martin and Gary, are also joined by Steve Norman and John Keeble. They had great success with the very first single they released, which was called “To Cut a Long Story Short”. This came out all the way back in 1980, and it began a career that has lasted the test of time.
Of course the band did have some time out of the music business, between 1990 and 2009. This was when they got back together and started touring again. This news was greeted very well by fans, who got to hear some of their classic material alongside brand new songs. The band has seven studio albums to its name, with 26 single releases and a further ten compilation albums. The most recent album they released was in 2014, when The Very Best of Spandau Ballet hit the shelves. This reached number eight in the charts.
For some people the best part about the fact the band got back together was the new opportunity to see them perform live. Indeed, many of the initial dates that were announced sold out very quickly indeed. Clearly, anyone searching to buy Spandau Ballet tickets would need to be lucky or fast to get them.
However there might be an opportunity to increase the odds in your favour if you are considering seeing them live. The best thing to do is to keep abreast of when the tour dates are announced. The more information you have at your fingertips the more likely it is you could get tickets when they are released. In addition you should consider where you’d like to go to see them live. Most tours will be formed of a selection of dates in different cities and locations, so it makes sense to know which locations would best suit you. Think about whether you’re prepared to travel and how far you might go to find the tickets you want.
Look too at how much the tickets are sold for when you go online to find them. Different positions might cost different sums of money depending on where you are in the audience. Bear this in mind because you might be able to get a good bargain if you weigh up the options.
In the end though speed is of the essence, and booking online means you are in the right place at the right time when it comes to getting the tickets for the Spandau Ballet gig you want to see.
