The Specials, O2 Academy Brixton, London - 16th May 2019

My first band in concert, Coventry 1979, 40yrs later Brixton twice! 17th & 18th.
The sounded great, the atmosphere was fantastic. I really like that concert hall.
The first night I was upstairs, I could see more. The second night I was downstairs, more enjoyable to dance and sing.
I would see them again, The Specials have a special place in my heart :)

The Specials, Grand Hall, Scarborough Spa, Scarborough - 6th May 2019

Im now 49 I've been a fan of Ska an Northern Soul particularly The Specials since I was about 10. But by the time I was old enough to see them for myself they'd split up. This opportunity was a no brainer and when this amazing band reformed I moved quicker than anyone to get my ticket. It's a dream come true and one that I thought seriously would never materialize. I thank Terry Hall an his band The Specials. It was an outstanding moment in time for me an a great gig. Well worth the journey from Liverpool.

Artist Bio

The Specials are the definitive sound of 2 Tone. Politically aware, they brought the struggles of Black Britain and thrust it into the mainstream with energised songs like Rat Race, A Message To You Rudy and Free Nelson Mandela. Their song Ghost Town came to define a UK crippled by 70’s recessions and left to rot by the callous governing of Thatcher, at war with the working class, minorities and society at large.

From their 80’s heyday to today, The Specials remain vital listening.

It has been one of the most remarkable, triumphant comebacks in pop history. In September 2008, when The Specials came on stage as ‘surprise act’ at the Bestival Festival on the Isle of Wight, it was their first appearance in 27 years. Their original followers, myself included, were both excited and a little apprehensive as to how their return would be received. After all, this was the band that transformed English pop in the late Seventies and early Eighties, with their fresh, brave and infectious blend of black and white styles, mixing Jamaican ska with punk energy, a bravely political stance, humour, and wry, pointed lyrics.

They were that rarity and apparent pop contradiction, a thoughtful band who also created glorious dance music, and created a mass movement of their own. So did they still have that old appeal and relevance, or were they just going through the motions? And could they still do justice to their classic songs?

Over 100 concerts later, and after extensive tours of the UK, Europe, North America and the Far East, such questions no longer need asking. The present-day Specials are still one of the greatest and most distinctive English bands, and as energetic and enthusiastic as they were in the early days, though these days they sound maybe just a little more considered. And they are now playing to bigger audiences than ever before.

The lure of going to see the heroes of your youth is often to bask in the soft fuzzy glow of nostalgia when life seemed much simpler. However, the service The Specials seem to be providing is actually recreating the more visceral political and emotional front line that pop operated in during that period of social change and upheaval, and a wild, physical, sometimes terrifying experience of listening to live music that may be being lost to younger generations.” - The Telegraph

There will only be limited amounts of The Specials concert tickets being made available. Make sure you book yours before they all go!
