Popular Brit band Spandau Ballet are all set to make a comeback after they disbanded in 1989.

The band, which is made up of Tony Hadley, brothers Martin and Gary Kemp, Steve Norman and John Keeble, will be performing on board HMS Belfast.

The venue is on the River Thames, where they first played in 1979.

The reunion has been orchestrated by their manager Steve Dagger.

“It’s true,” the Telegraph quoted him as telling the Sunday Express.

“We''re not making announcements yet, but yes, basically the boys are back in town.

“Not just a nostalgic re-run of the old, but a fresh slant on what Spandau Ballet are all about,” he added.
Relations between the band members had been strained since 1999, when Hadley, Norman and Keeble sued Gary Kemp claiming that he owed them royalties.

“Every band on the way down is a band on the way up. But I never thought I''d see this one,” Roy Eldridge, former boss of their old label Chrysalis Record, said.

“Once, they couldn''t stand to be in the same room together, let alone play.

But now they are older, fatter, poorer, there''s every reason to see if the magic still works,” he stated.
