Tony Hadley quit Spandau Ballet in 2017, which led to the band temporarily replacing him with singer Ross William Wild, who has since also left the band.

His former bandmate Martin Kemp told Smooth Radio last year that he hoped Tony will return one day, but Tony also told us that it would be very unlikely to happen.
