The star also overcame the personal challenge of dealing with a benign brain tumour.

Martin said. “I am really excited about 'An Audience With', I will be getting close to people who have followed me on my journey through Spandau Ballet, The Krays, EastEnders and all my ups and downs. See you there.”

There will be an opportunity to ask Martin a question and there is a limited number of ‘Meet and Greet' tickets due to demand.

Promoter Maria Philippou, of M P Promotions, said: "Many people will know Martin from varies aspects of his long and successful career...maybe you were one of the wave of New Romantics with an over-sized scarf and knock ‘em dead eye liner, who lived for the next big hit from Spandau Ballet.

"This iconic band had major hits all around the globe including America and multiple UK Top 10 hits including Gold, Only When You Leave and the number one smash, True.

"Martin’s acting skills were critically acclaimed in the major hit film The Krays, in which he starred with his brother Gary – following this, he appeared in many high profile roles in the States including Highlander: The Series."

"During this intimate evening, Martin will share wonderful stories about the Spandau journey but also his amazing acting career, even as a child he was on BBC1’s Jackanory.
