Veteran ska-punk band The Specials formed in Coventry in 1977, the trend-starting ska revival band that hit the British music scene hard. In the UK, their debut single “Gangsters” shot to Number 6 and every subsequent single was a Top 10 hit, including two Number 1 hits - “Too Much Too Young” and the much-loved “Ghost Town” - which won ‘Single of the Year 1981’ in NME, Melody Maker and Sounds.

Following the release of their eighth studio album Encore in 2019 to critical acclaim, the band comprised of Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Horace Panter hit the road again, cementing their legendary status in the music scene and continuing to inspire the next generation of politically motivated acts.
