As front male for Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley led the well-known band through the 1980s with 15 Top 10 songs (including the # 1 smash “True.”) The band took a 20 year hiatus before reforming in 2009, again striking the U.K. Top 10 with their reunion album, When More. Following a well-known documentary (directed by Julien Temple) and an effective trip, Hadley marched with The Christmas Album, his very first holiday offering, revealing the very same adventurous spirit, while doing what he does best– making every song his own.
