When The Specials kicked off the first night of their 30th Anniversary tour in April 2009 nobody could have realised just how incredible these live shows would be, and the utterly amazing reaction of fans around the world.
The audiences were packed with music lovers who had waited since 1981 to revisit this stunning band alongside Specials ‘virgins’ who had never had the chance to see them live. When the curtains dropped and Terry Hall, Lynval Golding, Neville Staple, Roddy Byers, Horace Panter and John Badbury exploded on stage to ‘Do The Dog’ dancehalls up and down the country erupted with young and old stomping as if their lives depended on it.
The Specials will be the first touring band to bring their own recyclable plastic cups on tour. They are commemorative tour cups exclusive to the UK tour.
Here is the deal, you can buy your cup with your first drink at a cost of £3, keep your cup all night and if you don’t want it at the end of the night return it and get your £3 back. If you want to keep it just take it away. They are dish washable and last as long as you want to keep them!
