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.

Next year sees them tour extensively. Make sure you catch them when they play O2 Academy Bournemouth, Portsmouth Guildhall, Brighton Dome, Plymouth Pavilions, Exeter University Great Hall, Cardiff University Great Hall, Manchester Academy and O2 Academy Leeds in May. Then Carlisle Sands Centre, O2 Academy Newcastle, Grand Hall Scarborough Spa, Cambridge Corn Exchange, Winter Gardens at Margate and O2 Academy Brixton in London during May 2019.

Due to massive demand, The Specials have also added a second London date. See them play O2 Forum on Saturday 18th of May 2019.

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!
