Specials’ London show tonight (May 7) is on

Band set to return after Terry Hall's throat infection

The Specials are set to play their gig tonight (May 7) at the O2 Academy Brixton in London following frontman Terry Hall‘s recovery from a throat infection.

The newly-reformed band had to cancel the first show of a five-night sold-out run at the venue last night (May 6) after Hall was struck down with throat problems.

However, the band’s spokesperson has told NME.COM that the singer is now fine and “the looking forward to tonight’s gig”.


Fans with tickets for last night’s cancelled show can gain entry to the rescheduled gig on May 16 using the same ticket.
