News that will delight fans young and old! Icons of British music, The Specials, have announced UK tour dates for 2014, beginning with gigs in Dublin, Belfast and Glasgow, before stopping off at venues across England, including two nights at London's prestigious Roundhouse, where surprisingly the band have never played before, despite having filmed the promo video for 'A Message To You Rudy' there back in 1979.
Needing little introduction in these pages, The Specials came out of Coventry in the late 1970s to become one of the biggest UK bands of the time. The united voice of an unheard generation, for many they will always represent the epitome of the second wave ska and 2-tone era. Reforming in 2009 The Specials' songs remain as relevant today as they were in the late seventies and early eighties.
UPDATE - NEW DATES ADDED in October and November, including, on 21st November, a one-off event and the last London show, 'FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY MORNING' at The Troxy an evening which will run till the wee hours with very specials guests Graham Coxon and DJ Don Letts.
