Spandau Ballet first concert with NEW singer tonight: Watch LIVE stream here
After a rather mysterious parting of the ways last year, Spandau Ballet will unveil new frontman Wild at a major London concert tonight.
From 7.45pm fans will be able to tune in and watch a live backstage stream.
Hosted by Pips Taylor this unique event will give global fans a VIP backstage pass to Spandau Ballet’s only UK gig of 2018. The live stream broadcast will include an exclusive interview with the band, a chat with some of Spandau’s superfans (who have flown in from around the world to be in London), and a preview of the soundcheck.
There are even rumours Boy George might be there too..
Spandau Ballet made a rapturous return to the stage introducing their new singer Ross William Wild at a very special club show at London’s Subterania in June.
Now fans worldwide will be able to get a proper look at the new line-up as they prepare for the official relaunch.
Ross William Wild was first introduced to the group when he starred as Elvis Presley alongside Spandau bassist Martin Kemp in The Million Dollar Quartet in 2016. At the time, Martin told the band: “He gave me goosebumps every night he sang.”
Tony Hadley and the band officially separated on July 3 last year, and when the time came to re-group it was clear to the boys after after one rehearsal that Wild’s voice and their music was the perfect fit.
The band can’t praise the former musical theatre star highly enough.
Gary Kemp says: “Ross’s great talent and passion has given us the confidence to continue playing the music we love. To quote one of our own songs, ‘There’s power in his voice and it makes us feel so sure.'”
Steve Norman adds: “Ross not only has the technical ability to cover Spandau’s songs but he’s already introducing his artistic creativity to the fold. On top of that he’s a right nice bloke. We struck lucky.”
Drummer John Keeble chips in: “I bonded with Ross over our mutual love of rock music, he may have come up through the theatres but he loves bands like Tool.’
Martin Kemp was Wild’s original champion and says: “He is an incredible talent, I’m so pleased he is now part of Spandau Ballet! Ross is a perfect fit for Spandau, and brings a new younger energy to the band that we are all enjoying!”
As for the man, himself, Wild can’t quite believe his luck.
He told Express Online: “Spandau’s music is so current. Having listened to it from a young age and then getting back into it recently, this stuff is still so valid. That’s why it’s important that they keep going.
“Spandau Ballet isn’t about one person. It isn’t just about the boys that are there now. It’s not about me. It was a movement. If it wasn’t for Spandau so much stuff wouldn’t have happened. They are pioneers. To be at the helm now with pioneers like Spandau feels just ridiculous!”
