The Specials

When The Specials reformed in 2009 for their 30th Anniversary not many would have seen the band still playing four years later having travelled all over the world and sold out hundreds of concerts. The reception to their life-affirming shows has been so incredible however and the band have enjoyed every minute of them so why stop now? Hence ten UK shows have been announced for May 2013.

The band last played in the summer at the Hyde Park (London) closing show for the Olympics alongside Blur, New Order and Bombay Bicycle Club. They will be performing a special show for 6 Music on the 12th December where they will take over the famous Maida Vale studios, but next May will be the first chance for people to come and see what is one of the most celebrated and revered bands the country has ever produced.

This event takes place at O2 Academy Sheffield, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
