We proudly present an exceptional evening headline concert with the incredible Tony Hadley, at the 2024 Sidmouth International Jazz and Blues festival.
Tony will perform some of the greatest swing songs from a classic era of music, alongside some stylish reworkings of his own classic hits. He will be performing songs by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, and Frank Sinatra; alongside solo songs as well as Spandau hits like ‘True’ and ‘Gold’ that introduced the world to his iconic voice.
Tony will be joined as ever by his fabulous band and, alongside a swinging brass section.
“My love of swing music began when I was young. The preparation for Sunday lunch was never without the classic sounds of Sinatra, Bennett and many more… Then years later, when we formed our first band at school which eventually would become Spandau Ballet, I was reminded by my parents that although I loved punk rock, if I were serious about pursuing a career as a professional singer, never to forget the classic jazz vocalists.
I want audiences to enjoy a night of amazing songs from an incredible era of music alongside some great songs from my own repertoire.”
