Dubai, UAE: Spandau Ballet, one of Britain’s great iconic bands will bring their Soul Boys of the Western World tour to Dubai World Trade Centre on Thursday 17th September, organisers Done Events have announced today.
The band have sold over 25 million records, scored numerous multi-platinum albums and amassed 23 hit singles across the globe since their humble beginnings as a group of friends with dreams of stardom in the late 1970’s. Being a part of the iconic Blitz Club scene in London’s Soho saw the band establish themselves as one of the super-groups of the 80s. After an acrimonious split and two decades apart, the band reformed in 2009, embarking on a sold-out tour – which included a date at Dubai’s Seven’s Stadium.
Late last year the band released the critically lauded ‘Soulboys of the Western World’ a film marking documenting their story. The band also released ‘The Story’ a greatest hits collection that included three new songs produced by legendary record producer Trevor Horn including ‘This Is The Love’ and the forthcoming single ‘Steal’.
Thomas Ovesen, Chief Operating Officer of Done Events said “Spandau Ballet are one of the great iconic bands of the 1980’s, yet these guys still retain their youthful swagger when on stage. People still talk about their amazing 2010 Dubai show, where together with Rod Stewart they sold out the 20,000 capacity Sevens Stadium. With strictly limited venue capacity this time around, we urge fans not to miss out and to guarantee their tickets by registering for the pre-sale”
Tickets are priced from AED 350 will be available from Sunday 12th April. To guarantee tickets to this intimate gig, fan can pre-register for tickets from today at www.doneevents.com
