The Specials Announce 2011 Tour
The Specials have announced a full European and UK tour for Autumn 2011.

The Coventry band, who were pivotal to the late 70s/early 80s ska revival movement, reformed in recent years for live dates including an appearance at the Bestival festival.

Controversially, key member Jerry Dammers has been missing from the recent activity. Clash spoke to both sides about the split, you read our interviews with Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall on ClashMusic HERE.
