THE SPECIALS head out on their first UK tour in two years in October/November 2016 which culminates with two shows at the Troxy in London, and sees them play Scunthorpe, Llandudno, York, Exeter, Reading and Cambridge for the very first time. 35 years since the band split, they are still going strong with phenomenal live shows since they reformed and toured in 2009.
These will be the first shows since the sad loss of drummer John (Brad) Bradbury in December. Vocalist Terry Hall says on behalf of the band - "We started working on these dates last October. Everyone was really looking forward to them & then just after Christmas Brad passed away. It was devastating but in our heart of hearts we know he would want us to continue with the plan he helped to put together"
