Tony Hadley has added the odds to the probability of Spandau Ballet's comeback. He has unveiled his interest to get all the members back together for a reunion. "The next window of opportunity that I see would be our 30th anniversary, in about four years' time," he said.

Before coming to the revival, Hadley has some things to be settled first, especially the unpleasant departure of the band. "There'll have to be an awful lot of things remedied because things did get personal and it went a bit too far," he explained. The band dissolved under a bitter rivalry between 2 sides in late 1980s. Hadley, Steve Norman and John Keeble brought Gary Kemp to High Court in subject of songwriting royalties.
