The English Beat Announce Australian Tour!

29 Nov

Charging onto the scene as ‘the hottest thing since the Pennsylvania meltdown’ in 1979, Birmingham’s Ska Kings sustained an equally explosive career, spearheading the British Ska movement alongside influential acts like The Specials, Madness, Bad Manners and The Selecter. Their sound is a cosmic blend of ska, punk and reggae. Hypnotic, rhythmic and danceable while remaining politically aware and socially active.

The current US-based incarnation boasts a setlist jam packed with fan favourites – Mirror In the Bathroom, Save It For Later, Too Nice to Talk To, Stand Down Margaret, Hands Off She’s Mine, I Confess and their 2Tone Records debut, a skankin’ cover of Smokey Robinson’s classic, Tears Of A Clown to name a few!

If last visit’s Sold Out shows in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney are anything to go by, there is no need to think twice – tickets will go fast, because The English Beat is very much alive, kicking and more infectious than ever!!
