This time the first song of the set turned out to be Stepping Out. The sound wasn't okay, the vocals were sung as if Joe was taking a shower, but the audience loved it already. After this Joe relaxed, started to talk, made funny faces, laughted and was interacting with the people.
With a new album out it was obvious that Joe, accompanied again by Graham Maby and Dave Houghton, would play a lot of the album. The audience wasn't disappointed with a setlist that included eight of the ten tracks. Although there were people in the audience unaware that he had released a new album recently.
For me it was a bit disappointed that opener "Invisible Man" wasn't played, although I could understand it, since the track was on the setlist in the 2006 and 2007 tour.

It starts off as a paean to True"as the best song of 1983, then proceeds in another post to talk about the rest of the year:
The great NYFD firefighter and actor Steve Buscemi immortalizes this song in the otherwise forgettable Adam Sandler vehicle The Wedding Singer: he winces, he exhales extra H's, he emotes. Spandau Ballet's lead singer, Tony Hadley, would never have done that; dressed in all his Bryan Ferry finery and sporting his New Romantic do, he stood with the mike pinched in the fingers of his hand... and emoted. "Oh I want the truth to be SAIIIIID .
Yes, "True." Performed by a band with one of the most stupid band names imaginable, "True" invaded Philippine airwaves, spawned a silly Spandau Ballet - Duran Duran showdown on DWLS 97.1*, and jumpstarted the dead-end careers of a million amateur singers. …
