THE SPECIALS have announced dates for a full U.K. tour this Autumn.
The dates during October and November show the Coventry ska legends' redoubtable spirit, as their line-up is reduced to three original members - Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Horace Panter - following the departure of Neville Staple and Roddy Radiation and, most recently, the tragic death of long-serving drummer John 'Brad' Bradbury.
The tour climaxes with two nights at London's Troxy venue, and also sees the band returning to Cambridge, scene of their infamous gig on the city's Midsummer Common in 1981, following which Hall and Jerry Dammers were convicted for public order offences, for allegedly inciting a riot.
