Martin would love for Spandau Ballet to reunite

Back in 2020, Martin revealed that he’s still hoping for Spandau Ballet to have a reunion.

He told Smooth Radio: “I’m always up for it. It’s a really weird thing. Sometimes— it’s about ego a lot of the time. You know, it’s people getting over arguments.

“Because I’ve grown up acting, I think I’ve worked with a lot of people that I don’t quite get on with over the years. But you have to. So I think my look on it is different.”

Martin added: “But the way things are at the moment – Spandau, you know, we’re very volatile. We’re best friends when we’re together, and we’re not when we’re apart.

“Trying to get us together is so difficult. Too many things have happened, and too many things have been said over the years that makes it so difficult nowadays.”
