SPANDAU BALLET has had to cancel three concerts planned in Spain this week (Barcelona, Ibiza and Marbella) due to drummer John Keeble’s ill health.

The band was forced to cancel a concert in Italy after Keeble was taken ill and doctors have decided he is in no fit state to perform this week, leading concerts in Barcelona, Ibiza and Marbella to be cancelled.

Although no details have been given by the group as to the type of illness Keeble is suffering, Spanish daily La Vanguardia has reported that he had a heart attack.

In an official statement the band said: “Cancelling shows is always something that we try to avoid and we are so sorry to let our fans down, but our priority at this time is John’s health and his recovery.”

Tickets will be refunded at points of purchase, the organisers announced.


  1. If you had plans to see a GREAT LIVE CONCERT this FRIDAY and your plans have recently changed then all is not lost! MOTOWN to MARS will be taking place in MIJAS AUDITORIUM, and although it isn’t exactly the Ballet, it does offer the Best of Motown, the Best of Bruno Mars and a whole lot more! So tell Julio to get the stretch and go through the barricades and enjoy MOTOWN to MARS in MIJAS this Friday, we know this much is true – it is now likely to be the best Friday night concert on the Costa del Sol this week. Don’t believe us just watch! Tickets available from or on the door on the night!
