Reunited band's tour expands

The Specials have added a further live show to their reunion tour.

The band, who announced they were reuniting last December, will play a 7,000-capacity open air gig on May 24 at LeedsMillennium Square this May.

Tickets for the gig go on sale at 9am (GMT) on Thursday (February 26).

All 12 of the other dates on the band’s previously announced tour have now sold out, although they have just confirmed a UK festival date, at T In The Park in July.

Last week, The Specials‘ singer Terry Hall spoke about the reasons main songwriter Jerry Dammers won’t be joining the band on tour.

He denied that Dammers had been “kicked out” of the group’s reunion plans.
