Spandau Ballet

  • 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

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
