Coventry ska-punk legends The Specials have announced a homecoming gig at Coventry Building Society Arena.

The band - comprised of Terry Hall, Lynval Golding, and Horace Panter - will be performing at the Indoor Arena - Coventry on Saturday 11th September 2021, after releasing a new studio album, Encore, for the first time in more than 38 years.

Formed in Coventry in 1977, the trend-starting ska revival band hit the British music scene hard. In the UK their debut single Gangsters shot to number six and every subsequent single was a top 10 hit, including two number ones - Too Much Too Young and the much-loved Ghost Town, which won ‘Single of the Year 1981’ in NME, Melody Maker and Sounds.
