The Specials Ltd Tickets
The Flowerpot, Derby.
This event is for 18 and over - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
Due to the severe weather and floods in Derby we have had to take the decision to postpone the Specials Ltd gig due to take place at The Flowerpot, Derby tonight... The new date for the gig is Friday 1st March 2024 and of course all tickets are valid for the new date. Derby is the only place in the whole country currently with severe 'danger to life' flood warnings in place. Nearly all of the routes in to the city are either closed or compromised. We apologise for having to make this decision at such late notice but for the safety of our customers and the band who are travelling from Wales we feel it is the correct decision.
THE SPECIALS LTD... A tribute to 2-Tone Legends The Specials.
When the original line up of The Specials split in 1981 they left behind a legacy which has been unrivaled by a single band since. The group were integral to promoting an anti-racial ethos, created a unique image and combined punk, ska and reggae music while lyrically commentating on the state of Britain in the late 70’s and early 80’s. They formed their own 2-Tone record label which launched the recording careers of Madness and The Selecter while being fundamental to the introduction of The Beat and Bad Manners and created a musical heritage which has lived on for over 40 years. They reformed for a 30th Anniversary Tour in 2009 and created a buzz of excitement for both old and a new wave of fans all around the world.
The Specials Ltd recreate the passion and enthusiasm of the Specials from 1979 to the 30th Anniversary Tour, bringing back memories of those who were there first time around and showing younger fans what they missed. Featuring members of 2Rude, the long established ska group widely known as one of the best tribute acts in the UK and former live collaborators with original Specials guitarist Roddy Radiation, The Specials Ltd are a 9 piece band full of energy, excitement and accuracy, performing Specials favourites such as Gangsters, Too Much Too Young and Ghost Town from the golden era of 1979-1981.
