SOUL BOYS OF THE WESTERN WORLD will be launching in cinemas across the UK & Ireland with a special one-off live satellite premiere screening event on Tuesday 30 September, and will then go on general release from 3 October.
After the European premiere screening of the film, Spandau Ballet will be reunited on stage in the UK for the first time since 2010 and will answer questions with director, George Hencken about the film which will be hosted by Lauren Laverne, before ending the evening performing some of their anthems which were a soundtrack to a generation. This unique event will be beamed by satellite to 100’s of cinemas across the UK and Eire as the band return to the Royal Albert Hall for the first time since the week True was released in April 1983.
SOUL BOYS OF THE WESTERN WORLD is a journey through the 1980s and beyond; the story of a band, an era and how one small gathering of outsiders in London shaped the entire world’s view of music and fashion. The film is not only a fascinating, often hard-hitting social and cultural document of the time, but a brutally honest story of how friendships can be won, lost and ultimately regained.
The film received its World Premiere in Competition at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas in March, where Music-News.com had an exclusive hotel room chat with the boys.
A New album collection including three new songs produced by legendary record producer Trevor Horn “The Story-The Very Best Of Spandau Ballet” is released on 13 October. A soundtrack album to accompany the film will also be released.
