Defunct new romantic group Spandau Ballet may be set for a revival after singer Tony Hadley said the group's very public disagreements were in the past.

Hadley told Virgin Radio's Shane Ritchie that he was prepared to let bygones be bygones with his former bandmates and earmarked the group's 30th anniversary in 2011 as a potential comeback date.

Spandau Ballet, best known for their hits True and Gold, broke up in 1989; two years after their last top 40 single How Many Lies.

In 1999 however Hadley, along with group members Steve Norman and John Keeble unsuccessfully tried to sue singer Gary Kemp at the high court for £1 million in songwriting royalties.

Although Hadley, recently seen in the West End version of Chicago, admitted things "went a bit too far", he insists that a reunion remains possible.

"The next window of opportunity that I see would be our 30th anniversary, in about four years' time," he said.

Brothers Gary and Martin Kemp have gone on to become actors since the group disbanded, with the latter becoming a household name thanks to his turn in EastEnders as nightclub owner Steve Owen.
