Gary Kemp reckons Spandau Ballet could be turned into a great musical... and wants it set in a courtroom.

Mindful no doubt of what Mamma Mia! (and the film of that musical) did for Abba's fortunes, Gary Kemp tells me he is toying with the idea of Spandau Ballet – The Musical.

"It's a great idea," the band's guitarist and chief songwriter told me at the CLIC Sargent Fantasy Ball at the Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair. With a nod to the the occasional legal spats between the band's members, Kemp added that he thought a courtroom would make a good setting."I see it with some touches of Gilbert and Sullivan and all set in a court," he says.

Fellow band member Tony Hadley seemed less enamoured of the notion: "Those sort of musicals seldom work," he said.
