Spandau Ballet will headline a night at this summer's Eden Sessions, held in the surroundings of the Eden Project, Cornwall.
John Keeble, Steve Norman, Tony Hadley, Martin Kemp and Gary Kemp are all taking to the stage on Thursday 9 July 2015 as part of their Soulboys of the Western World Tour.
The group achieved international success in the 1980s with timeless classics such as 'True' and 'Gold' and became fully-fledged members of the iconic Blitz Club scene.
After a 20-year break, they reunited in 2009, embarking on a sold-out tour. The latest tour is the first for the platinum award-winning band since then.
Their appearance at the Eden Sessions with ASUS Transformer Book Chi will unite them with Rusty Egan, the legendary DJ from the Blitz Club and friend, who has been confirmed as the special guest for the evening set.
Rita Broe, Eden's marketing director, said:"We are thrilled that they will be playing Eden, in a tour they describe as being ‘back for one more dance’. Their addition to the Sessions 2015 makes this summer without doubt our strongest-ever bill."
Spandau Ballet will join Paolo Nutini (June 12 - sold out), Elton John (16 and 17 June - sold out), Paloma Faith (June 24), The Stranglers & Motorhead (27 June), and Ben Howard (17 July) on the bill for the 2015 Eden Sessions.
