Showing at the Eden Cinemas on Tuesday, 30th September at 21:00 is the European premiere of the movie ‘Soul Boys of the Western World’. Broadcast live via satellite from the Royal Albert Hall in London, the film will be followed by Q&A hosted by Lauren Laverne.
Spandau Ballet, one of Britain’s most iconic bands, will be answering questions about the film, together with movie director George Hencken. Reunited on stage for the first time in years, the band will end the evening with a special live show where they will performance some of their most popular anthems.
‘Soul Boys of the Western World’ is a landmark documentary on the greatest band of the 80s, Spandau Ballet. The movie captures 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. Having received rave reviews at the World Premier at the SXSW Film festival in Austin, Texas last March, the movie is said to be an honest and uplifting archive-only feature documentary which combines newsreel footage together with never-before-seen videos from the band’s personal archives and also candid interviews with all five band members.
Spandau Ballet have 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.
Tickets for the show are priced at €10 and can be purchased from www.edencinemas.com.mt
