Reunited British new wave group Spandau Ballet have added their name to a planned Lou Reed tribute as part of the South-by-Southwest festival in Texas.

The synth-pop pioneers will headline the special gig, which will be co-hosted by Alejandro Escovedo and held at the Paramount Theatre in Austin on 14 March (14).

Spandau Ballet will be at the festival promoting their documentary Soul Boys of The Western World, which chronicles the True hitmakers rise as one of the 1980s most successful acts.

The film will be screened at the Paramount Theatre on 12 March (14), prior to the band's first U.S. performance in almost three decades.
