The Specials, one of the most electrifying, influential and important bands of all time have announced a 31-date European and UK tour in support of their just announced brand new album, “Encore” “Encore”, The Specials first new music for 37 years, will be released on February 1st via UMC /Island Records.  2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of The Specials and the legendary Two-Tone label in Coventry in 1979, and also marks 10 years since the band reformed to play some of the most vital and joyous live shows in recent memory.

The 10-song “Encore” was produced by Specials founding members Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Horace Panter alongside Danish musician/producer Torp Larsen and indeed is the first time Hall, Golding & Panter have recorded new material together since the band’s 1981 No.1 single Ghost Town.

The Specials appearing at this event

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.
