A new documentary called Soul Boys of the Western World follows the British band Spandau Ballet from its New Romantic beginnings in London in the late 1970s through an appearance at Live Aid in 1985 and a 1999 fight over royalties that landed most of its members in England's high court for a whole month. Blitz Kids, yacht parties, acting gigs, beaches in Ibiza, marriages, divorces, side projects, the promise of a reunion ... it's all in there. So is the music.

A 2010 UK reunion tour (named after a 2002 greatest hits CD, Reformation) gave way to an appearance at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, which was the band's first concert in the US in 28 years. Now, Spandau Ballet is ready to try and conquer America again in 2015.
