Tony Hadley, who left to pursue a solo career, has been replaced by West End star Ross William Wild
The band were one of the biggest groups of the 1980s, with 10 of their singles crashing the top 10 of the UK charts, songs still enjoyed now like 'True' and 'Through The Barricades'. Their biggest hit, 'True', spent four weeks at number 1 on 1983.
The band's original lineup of Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp, Steve Norman, John Keeble and Tony Hadley split in the 90s, with a high profile court battle focusing on money taking up more column inches than the music.
Reforming in 2009 the band performed across the whole world, but singer Hadley left to pursue to solo career last year. It's now been announced that he's been replaced by Ross William Wild, a 30-year-old singer and actor who's enjoyed a successful career on the West End,
The band's newest member first met Martin Kemp when both appeared in the stage show of Million Dollar Quartet, in which Wild played Elvis Presley.
With their new frontman in tow, Spandau Ballet will perform at London's Eventim Apollo on Mon 29 Oct. Tickets for the show are on sale now.
