See The Specials Live On Tour @ Brighton Centre, September 4th 2021

“The Specials are so much more than relevant. In times like these, they might just be essential” – The Big Issue

We all know this band, for hits like “A Message To You Rudy” (below) – but have you checked out their latest work yet? If not, you’ve got it to look forward to!

The Big Issue said of this band: “The Specials are so much more than relevant. In times like these, they might just be essential” – and you have to agree. First rearing their heads in the late 1970s as the multiracial flagship of the 2 Tone movement, they addressed racism, unemployment and injustice  – with every live appearance they made a clear political statement, and these days not much has changed!

Now back on the tour circuit in 2021, a period fraught with social, racial and political unrest, their latest work follows a triumphant return in 2019, when they dropped their first ever number 1 album, critically acclaimed release “Encore”. 
 
Now back with a brand new collection of tracks on their new album “Protest Songs – 1924 -2012”, due out at the end of September (24th) on their new label Island Records, the release contains 12 hand-picked protest songs from across nearly 100 years, and makes a clear statement that the band are still active, and still protesting.
