We are delighted to welcome Steve back to Holborn for 2 shows in 2018: a special "Charity Show " on December 8 with his band and some surprise guests. All profits will go to Breast Cancer charity. Due to popular demand Steve will return to Holborn the day after on December 9 for a regular show with his band. This will be the final show in 2018 of his ‘Pop Up UK’ tour and will feature tracks not performed on previous shows along with some of the Spandau Ballet favorites and some brand-new tracks. Steve Norman is a founder member of Spandau Ballet. The band had ten UK top 10 hits, including 'True', 'Gold', 'Chant No. 1' and 'Only When You Leave'.

'Soundcheck Experience' package (£55) include early entrance at 5.45pm on Saturday (5:15pm on Sunday),  premium front seats - Enjoy the last few tracks of the soundcheck with Steve and his band – Meet & Greet and photograph opportunity are also included.

By the third Spandau Ballet album not only did Steve bring his love of percussion to the mix but also introduced the saxophone which has since become his signature instrument. Steve wrote and played one of the most iconic and recognizable saxophone solos in history of pop music on the band’s No. 1 smash hit “True”.

Over the years Steve toured the globe with Spandau Ballet and in 1985 he appeared at Live Aid at Wembley Stadium.

In 2014 the band released a documentary about themselves and 1980s culture more broadly, Soul Boys of the Western World, followed by a Top 10 “The Story – The Very Best of Spandau Ballet” album and another sold-out world tour in 2015.

Besides his activities with Spandau Ballet, Steve is also a singer and songwriter. In 2017 he started playing solo shows across Europe accompanied by his 5-piece band. His set includes brand-new solo material, Spandau Ballet classics and songs that influenced his musical career. His so-called “Pop Up Tour” is hugely popular, rewarded him with sold-out shows and solidified his standing as a singer and solo performer.

As a multi-instrumentalist and passionate music lover Steve is highly respected by fellow musicians. His vita shows an impressive selection of legendary artists he played for and sang with: Iggy Pop, Tony Visconti, Marc Almond, Steve Harley, The Alarm, Glen Matlock, Kim & Marty Wilde, Martin Fry, Bruce Foxton and Glenn Gregory to name a few, as well as with former David Bowie musicians such as Earl Slick, Mike Garson, Gail Anne Dorsey and Woody Woodmansey.
