When the original line up of The Specials split in 1981 they left behind a legacy which has been
unrivalled by a single band since. Aside from combining musical and racial cultures their clothing,
musical movement and their own 2-Tone record label (which started the musical careers of the likes
of Madness and The Selecter) created a legacy 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 new fans all
around the world. 10 years later they are still going strong, now celebrating 40 years of 2-Tone and
The Specials Ltd recreate the passion and enthusiasm of the original Specials line up, bringing back
memories for those who were there first time around and showing younger fans what they missed.
Featuring members of 2 Rude, the long-established band widely known as one of the best ska
tribute acts in the UK, The Specials Ltd are a 9-piece band full of energy, excitement and accuracy,
performing Specials tracks from the golden era of 1979-1981… ‘Too Much Too Young’, ‘Gangsters’,
‘Ghost Town’, ‘Rat Race’ and many more.
They have quickly begun to wow audiences with their performances and their sold out shows to
date include their debut at London’s iconic 100 Club in December 2018.
