THE SELECTER + THE BEAT
The Selecter and The Beat have announced a co-headline London concert on Friday 6th October 2017 at Camden's Roundhouse after selling out o2 Shepherds Bush Empire in record time.
The 2 Tone legends are teaming up to give fans a rare treat. Life-long friends, they are two of the main bands to come out of 2 Tone – a crucial musical and cultural movement which is still as relevant today as it was over 30 years ago.
The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black, alongside an incredible talented band of musicians, and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the 2 Tone era is still there. Their confidence is sky-high and they’re also writing the best songs of their career, which is saying something given the enduring popularity of hits like "Three Minute Hero", "Missing Words" and "On My Radio".
The Beat fronted by Ranking Roger released their spectacular fourth album "Bounce" (the first in over 30 years) in 2016. The album shows off every gleaming aspect of one of the most musically diverse bands to come out of the multiracial, multicultural explosion that remade British pop from 1979 onwards. The same energy that drove the hit singles of the 80s; "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Stand Down Margaret" and "Too Nice To Talk To" – reggae looseness plus razor-sharp song-writing meets the paranoid pace of punk – is here again.
Renowned for their energetic live shows, longevity has not diminished either band’s ability to put in a performance and get everyone in a room, or field, dancing. Don’t miss arguably two of the best live bands around playing full sets of their many hits, and more.
