The Specials are back on tour, with many UK dates having already sold out months ago. These include the band's first ever gigs at London's prestigious Roundhouse and the special 'FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY MORNING' gig at Troxy with very specials guests Graham Coxon and DJ Don Letts. See end of post for dates and ticket links.
And, if you need an appetiser, watch our exclusive footage from our Terry Hall and Friends gig at the ICA, in London, earlier in the year. The unique gig saw Terry Hall joined on stage by fellow Specials, Horace Panter and John Bradbury, as well as Ian Broudie and Angie Pollock of The Lighting Seeds. Amongst other great songs, the all star line up performed Specials' favourite 'A Message to you Rudy', Fun Boy Three's 'Our Lips Are Sealed', 'Sense' (co-written by Hall and Broudie) and a cover of The McCoys' 'Sorrow', a song made famous by David Bowie's 1973 version which appeared on the album Pinups.
