The Specials frontman Terry Hall teased his estranged bandmate Jerry Dammers during the last scheduled London show of the band's 30th anniversary tour last night (November 27).

Dammers has famously not taken part in the comeback shows after a series of disagreements with the group. Before playing 'Stereotype' from 1980's 'More Specials', Hall told the capacity crowd at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo: "It's a shame Jerry can't be here. But you can see him at in panto as Scrooge at Bridlington Spa."

The band, playing their third Hammersmith show of the week, played their usual hit-packed set before a devotional crowd.

Kicking off the show with 'Do The Dog' from 1979's debut album 'Specials', the band went on to play classics including 'A Message To You Rudy', 'Gangsters', 'Rat Race' and their two UK Number One singles - 'Too Much Too Young' and 'Ghost Town'.
