Never miss another 'The Specials' show
The Specials + Sleaford Mods
Coventry legends The Specials have announced a UK and Ireland tour for 2014 which sees them celebrate five years since they first reformed.
The dates take them to several legendary venues - including the London Roundhouse - where they have never played before (despite filming the video for ‘A Message to You Rudy’ there), and the shows finish at the iconic Nottingham Rock City.
Since getting back together in 2009 they band have travelled all over the world and played to hundreds of thousands of people, uniting old fans and new at their incredible live gigs.

This event takes place at O2 Academy Leeds, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Coventry's The Specials are without doubt the definitive 2Tone band of their generation. In the late '70s and early '80s they pioneered the new British ska sound and racked up seven Top 10 hits whilst exerting an influence on the fledgling genre that is beyond measure.
The band reformed to celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2009 and have since travelled all over the world and sold out hundreds of concerts.
