Motorpoint Arena Nottingham

Friday 17 September 2021

Tickets from £49.53

Following the release of their eighth studio album Encore last year to critical acclaim, The Specials hit the road again! They'll play the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Friday 17 September 2021. Influential, important and exhilarating live, The Specials are a band embedded in this country's DNA. It is impossible to envisage the musical landscape without them, from the startling, angular Gangsters in 1979 to their swan song, the epoch-making Ghost Town in 1981.

The genius of the Specials is that they are still observers, not commentators. The genius of the Specials is that they know what pop music is.
