In the absence of a new aesthetic (NA), it’s good to see Spandau Ballet with no identity crisis. Fantastic really. Helen Mirren is beautiful to look at and Tony Hadley moves like an actor playing a mafioso. No?
Well maintained, well mannered, beautiful to look at are Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl, aside from Tony Hadley, at age 54 no clown on stage.
