    Spandau Ballet confirm reunion plans

    Spandau Ballet have confirmed that they are reuniting.

    The group have scheduled a press conference this week on board the HMS Belfast in London to reveal details of their comeback.

    "The boys are back in town and we can't wait. It's going to be brilliant, we're very excited. But it will be very different to how we used to be," Tony Hadley told The Sunday People.

    "Obviously there'll be all the hits, the nostalgia, but there will also be a new take on what Spandau Ballet are about."

    The group, who scored hits with 'Gold' and 'True', hinted at plans for a comeback earlier in the year after patching up their differences.

    In 1999, band members Hadley, Steve Norman and John Keeble lost a court case with Gary Kemp for a £1 million share of songwriting royalties.

    Lead singer Tony Hadley said: "As you can see, we're back together again and we're very happy boys.
    "We're embarking on a British tour in October and then on to the rest of the world and we're all very excited. We've had a rehearsal which sounded a million dollars."
    He said the tour would kick off in Dublin on October 13 and end in Manchester on October 28.
    The five-piece - Hadley, percussionist Steve Norman, drummer John Keeble and brothers Gary and Martin Kemp, on guitar and bass - scored a string of top ten hits during the 80s including Gold and True.
    However, the band split in 1989 over a feud about royalties that ended up in the High Court in 1999. Judges rejected a claim by Hadley, Keeble and Norman to hundreds of thousands of dollars in royalties from Gary Kemp for songs he had written.
    Meanwhile, the Kemps went into acting, starring as East End gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray in the 1990 film The Krays. Martin Kemp also starred as villain Steve Owen in ]EastEnders in the late 1990s.
    Spandau Ballet are the latest in a series of groups to reunite - Take That and the Police have both staged successful comeback tours in recent years and Blur are reforming for a series of gigs this summer.
    Michael Jackson also recently announced a marathon series of concerts at London's O2 arena, which sold out within hours
