80's music fans, sad news today with Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley splitting away from the band.
In a statement on social media, he didn't explain the sudden exit except for this statement.
However, the band have replied with a very simple statement that puts the blame on Hadley.
Much to our frustration, Tony had made it clear in September 2016 that he didn’t want to work with the band anymore. This has not changed and 2015 was the last time we were able to perform or work with him. So we have now made the decision to move on as a band.
