Stage set-up in the middle of “Plaza de Callao" by radio station M80... SPANDAU BALLET suddenly appeared and began to sing!!
|Tony Hadley, 55 (Vocals)|
|Gary Kemp, 55 (Guitar)|
|Steve Norman, 55 (Saxophone)|
Not surprising the concert was deserted: by the time the band ended their second song, almost 500 attendees demanded an encore. "We didn't test for acoustic format" Gary apologized, and immediately improvised a funky tune to the delight of the audience.
- "No idea they were going to play. They were my favourite band, I had posters and everything; what a surprise" said an excited woman close to 50. "They're older, but that's adorable: they're growing old with us," her friend added.
- "My parents have all their albums. They're going to freak out when show them" exclaimed a young woman after the concert.
- "They're my idols, but I never thought I would find them here, playing live. It is the best thing that happened in my life!" said an 21-year-old English Erasmus student while waiting to get an autograph from Tony and taking pictures with her mobile.
