The Specials continue their 30th Anniversary celebrations with the announcement of the final dates of their tour. The band kick off another set of shows on 1st November in Cardiff and continue around the country for the month.

Their earlier dates in April and May of this year sold out in record time, and received spectacular reactions and reviews, with every venue on the tour packed to the rafters and the band’s classic tracks sounding ‘eerily relevant’ to the current times according to The Independent On Sunday. With The Daily Telegraph praising ‘one of the greatest live bands this country has ever produced’ and The Evening Standard acclaiming a band ’spectacularly and life affirmingly reborn’, the second leg of the tour sees the band visit those concert halls that missed out on the first leg before a return to London for two massive nights at the Hammersmith Apollo to follow their five sold out night’s at Brixton.
