Man of the people, 80s icon Tony Hadley is coming to Leeds! The hugely popular solo artist, songwriter and radio presenter will be bringing his inimitable style and fantastic stage presence along with his full live band and arsenal of hits to Millennium Square in Leeds on Saturday 21 July 2018. Tony Hadley fronted the 80s Romantics global superstars Spandau Ballet, earning himself the accolade of being ‘one of pop’s greatest vocalists’. The band enjoyed huge success across the world with many chart-topping singles and albums, including Through the Barricades, True and Gold.

Tony Hadley will be joined by multi award winning singer and songwriter, Gabrielle who will be performing her many classic hits as well as tracks from her new album 'Under My Skin'. The release of ‘Under My Skin’ will mark 25 years since the release of her debut #1 single, Dreams.

Opening the evening will be local Yorkshire soulful groove and funk band Ten Millennia who have recently been performing live with The Corrs and Jools Holland as well extensively touring the UK on their own touring schedule.
