The Londoner was originally on course for a career in medicine, before winning a holiday singing competition inspired him to pursue a career in music. From then on, everything fell into place.
Hadley went on to front the celebrated New Romantic band Spandau Ballet, becoming one of pop's most recognisable voices. The band had numerous No.1 albums and singles across the world, including ‘Through the Barricades’ ‘True’ and the unofficial London Olympics theme ‘Gold’.
Following the band’s split in 1990, Hadley has enjoyed a successful solo career. In 2005 he was awarded a Gold Badge from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters.
He reached new audiences with his contribution to the soundtrack for the 2016 Hugh Jackman film ‘Eddie the Eagle’. In 2018 he released his solo album Talking To The Moon, which was followed by his single ‘Obvious’ in 2020.
Last year Hadley embarked on his 40th Anniversary Tour, performing 40 shows across the UK as well as concerts in Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Japan and Italy.
Tickets (excluding booking fee) are €45 for standing and €55 for reserved balcony seating. They are available from Ticketmaster.ie on Thursday, July 6 at 10AM.
