As front guy for Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley led the acclaimed band through the 1980s with 15 Top 10 singles (including the # 1 smash “True.”) The band took a twenty years hiatus before reforming in 2009, once again striking the U.K. Top 10 with their reunion album, Again. Following a well-known documentary (directed by Julien Temple) and an effective trip, Hadley marched with The Christmas Album, his first holiday offering, revealing the exact same daring spirit, while doing what he does finest– making every tune his own.
