The Specials have announced plans for a 10-date tour of the UK next year.

The ska legends will play throughout May 2013, kicking off the run of dates at Glasgow Barrowland on May 10. They will visit Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and more, finishing up at London's O2 Academy Brixton on May 28.

The Specials reformed in 2009 and last year changed their mind about splitting up again. Previously, frontman Terry Hall had claimed that he no longer wanted to play live shows with the band, indicating that their 2011 show at London Alexandra Palace would be their final gig.

However, The Specials' guitarist Lynval Golding then told BBC 6 Music after the show that the band were "in a completely different mood" and that they had not decided to part ways.

The Specials performed alongside Blur and New Order in London's Hyde Park back in August as part of a special Olympic Games closing ceremony concert.

The Specials will play:

Glasgow Barrowland (May 10, 2013)
Newcastle O2 Academy (13)
Manchester O2 Apollo (15)
Liverpool Olympia (18)
Leicester De Montford Hall (19)
Birmingham O2 Academy (21)
Newport Centre (23)
Margate Winter Gardens (25)
Portsmouth Guildhall (26)
London O2 Academy Brixton (28)
