The SpecialsExpect a sea of pork pie hats and mod-style suits as the legendary ska band The Specials reform for a 10 date tour around the UK. The band, who are best known for their hits 'Too Much Too Young' and 'Ghost Town', have been stacking up hits for over 30 years and they land in London for one night at the O2 Brixton Academy.

 

About Brixton Academy

This former cinema with its art deco interior, proscenium arch and 140ft dome is London's most celebrated venue for live music, winning Best Live Venue at the NME awards for 7 years in a row. The famous sloping floor means there are great views wherever you're standing, though keeping your feet can be a problem at the more raucous rock gigs. More about Brixton Academy
