The Specials Reunite For UK Dates

The Specials line up (Ghost Town promotional material)After ‘five years of reservations’, The Specials are ready to return, the original line up will re unite for an Autumn tour, the first time they will have performed in public for 25 years.

Band rehearsals have been going on for some months now, with the band previously saying that they were prepared to perform again if they felt they had something to offer.

“Seven 50-year-old men together in a room is not very pleasant, no matter who you are. But we’re getting on great and that’s all you can hope for, really.” said lead singer Terry Hall.

He added that The Specials will only play small UK venues, as arena’s and sit down theatre’s “would be weird. I think we should carry on where we left off.”
