SOUL BOYS OF THE WESTERN WORLD will be launching in cinemas across the UK & Ireland with a special 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, to rave reviews. Long-time Julien Temple collaborator Hencken won acclaim for her honest and uplifting archive-only feature documentary, which combines newsreel footage with never-before-seen video from the band's personal archives, as well as candid interviews with all five band members.

Spandau Ballet are one of Britain’s great iconic bands having sold over 25 million records, scored numerous multi-platinum albums and amassed 23 hit singles across the globe since their humble beginnings as a group of friends with dreams of stardom in the late 1970s. It wasn’t long before they became fully fledged members of the iconic Blitz Club scene and established themselves as one of the super-groups of the 80s. After two decades apart, the band reformed in 2009, embarking on a sold-out tour. SOUL BOYS OF THE WESTERN WORLD marks the first time their story has been documented on film.

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.
