    Spandau Ballet and Tears for Fears Tour.

    I'm seeing Spandau Ballet supported by Tears for Fears tonight here in Brisbane, Australia. While not a huge fan of Spandau in the 80's I can't wait to see them, moreso TFF. Actually I think the lineup should be the other way around.
    I've been digging up the old TFF back catalogue and it is impressive. I think TFF and The Fixx are pretty similar, still playing and sounding as good as ever and underated in the history of music.

    I'm the same, never a huge Spandau Ballet fan but to be honest they blew me away. I've always thought of them as studio band but they rocked so hard, Tony Hadley's voice was so strong it was amazing. The guys seemed to be having a great time together too which was great to see.
    Tears for Fears were awesome too and the crowd really got into it, hard to believe it was an 80's concert really.

    Great to see so many TFF fans on here. Got to see them here in LA right before they left for their Austrailian tour. Used an HD flip camera up near the front and shot a lot of video.

    Double bill with The Fixx & TFF would be the ultimate!

    I may have said this elsewhere, but they rarely ever tour, so it's a real pleasure to see them. Going Sep. 4th in VA. Music ICONS!
