Electro, funk and dance music pioneers Spandau Ballet will return to the United States to perform for the first time in 28 years this March as part of the 2014 SXSW Film and Music Festival at the reopening of the legendary Vulcan Gas Company.
The five original members - Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp and Steve Norman - recently announced the world premiere of their documentary Soul Boys of the Western World at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas in competition in the 24 Beats section. The feature-length film was directed by George Hencken and includes rare original footage and a side of the band many fans will never have seen before.
Soul Boys of the Western World will be screened at 2PM on Wednesday, March 12 at the Paramount Theatre (713 Congress Ave). Later that night Spandau Ballet will also stage their first performance in America in nearly three decades in Austin's famed Vulcan Gas Company (The Vulcan), 418 E 6th St which has been closed for 44 years and is reopening, re-built and re-born, with this performance by one of the 80's iconic super groups.
