- The sound of Spandau Ballet: new wave steeped in the escapist synths and colorful fashion of the UK New Romanticism movement
- How frontman Tony Hadley makes the crowd swoon: with suave blue-eyed soul vocals
- How multi-instrumentalist Steve Norman makes the crowd swoon: with suave sax solos
- When the UK had their first dance with Spandau Ballet: in 1980 with the debut single “To Cut a Long Story Short”
- When the US finally cut in on that dance: in 1983 with the breakthrough album True, featuring the zestful hit “Gold” and the timeless title track
- Where you’ve heard “True”: on non-stop MTV rotation in the early ’80s, the prom dance in Sixteen Candles, and warbled by Steve Buscemi in The Wedding Singer
- What’s happened since the ’80s: the band took a 20-year hiatus to explore solo projects, but reunited in 2009
- The fitting name of this tour: Soulboys of the Western World, which is also the title of a new documentary about their career
- What you’ll hear at the show: all of the band’s new-wave classics, plus tracks from their upcoming album, which features production from ’80s studio legend Trevor Horn
NYCB Theatre at Westbury
More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts and musical theater.
