To begin with, he was raised in Hampstead, North London with two siblings, and was educated at Dame Alice Owen’s Grammar School. Thinking about landing a career in medicine, while still at school he and school friends decided to form a band, called The Cut, in 1976.
The band debuted publicly as Spandau Ballet in 1980 with the hit song “To Cut a Long Story Short”. The first album of “Journeys to Glory” (1981) was released shortly after, which proved to be a great success, but their next album “Diamond” (1982) did not find an audience, except for the hit “Chant No.1”. Then Spandau Ballet started working with producer Trevor Horn, and thanks to him the song “Instinction” became a huge hit across the UK. The third album “True” (1983), which put the group on the charts not only in the UK but also in the US, turned out to be the real breakthrough. In 1984, the release of the fourth album “Parade”, however, did not repeat the success of the predecessor, so two years later the band presented the album “Through the Barricades”, in which the band’s sound evolved into rock. The title track was a hit only in the hometown. In 1989, Spandau Ballet’s last album “Heart Like a Sky” was released, before a lengthy hiatus.
In 2009, the Spandau Ballet musicians reunited in their original line up to give a series of concerts, and their seventh studio album, “Once More” was released.
After the dissolution of Spandau Ballet in 1990, Hadley embarked on a solo career, and in 1992 his debut album “The State of Play” was released, from which three moderately successful singles were decoupled. Together with the British House Band Tin Tin Out, the single “Dance With Me” was created in 1997, and Hadley once again took the plunge into the charts. In the same year, he released his second, self-titled album, which mainly contained cover versions. In 1999, he toured Europe as a singer with Alan Parsons on The Time Machine Tour, then appeared in the reality television series “Reborn”, before in 2007 playing the lawyer Billy Flynn in the musical “Chicago” at the Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End.
Hadley worked as a radio host too, on Virgin Radio, taking up the show “Friday Night Virgin Party Classics” in 2007. In 2011, he sang along with the Italian rapper Caparezza on the single “Goodbye Melancholy”, so all his ventures add to Tony’s net worth.
Finally, in the personal life of the singer, he married Leonie Lawson in 1983, and they have three children, but divorced in 2003. In 2009 Tony married Alison Evers, and they have two children; they currently live in Buckinghamshire, England.
