This summer’s Castle Concerts series includes a fabulous 80s Night featuring Tony Hadley, ABC, and Go West on Friday, 19 July.

As lead singer of New Romantic pioneers Spandau Ballet, Tony Hadley has earned the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists, fronting countless smash hits including Gold, Only When You Leave, Lifeline and the epic Through The Barricades, as well as his prominent vocal contributions to Band Aid and Live Aid.

More than thirty years since their iconic debut album The Lexicon of Love, Martin Fry and ABC will be showcasing hit Tears are not Enough, Poison Arrow, The Look of Love and All of My Heart, while Go West’s Peter Cox and Richard Drummie will get the crowds rocking to their massive 80s hits including Call Me, Don’t Look Down and We Close Our Eyes. Brit Pop rockers The Fortunate will be the supporting act.

This year’s Castle Concerts begin with legendary rockers Status Quo who will kick off the Castle Concerts on Wednesday, 17 July. Tickets are also on sale for top boy band The Wanted on Thursday, 18 July and the Castle Proms on Saturday 20 July, when the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and special guests will perform a rousing selection of flag waving favourites including Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and the 1812 Overture, complete with a stunning fireworks display.

Tickets cost £35 for The Wanted, 80s Night and Status Quo and £30 for the Castle Proms.
