The Specials - Newport Centre, Newport - May 23 2013 (Photo Gallery)

Tuesday, 28 May 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

The Specials, the most popular 2Tone band of their generation, were in South Wales last week stopping off at the Newport Centre on Thursday 23rd May as part of their current UK tour. Stereoboard were on hand to capture all the action on stage!

Coventry's The Specials pioneered the new British ska sound of the late 1970s and early 1980s. They racked-up 7 consecutive UK Top Ten singles between 1979 and 1981 before breaking up.

Reforming in 2008, original members Terry Hall, Neville Staple, Sir Horace Gentleman, Roddy Radiation, Lynval Golding and John Bradbury reunited to tour in celebration of the band's 30th Anniversary. 

This new tour has seen The Specials perform at venues in Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Leicester, Birmingham, Newport, Margate and Portsmouth. They close the tomorrow night with a two-night return to London's Brixton Academy.

The Specials UK & Ireland Tour Dates are as follows

Tue May 28th 2013 - LONDON O2 Academy Brixton
Wed May 29th 2013 - LONDON O2 Academy Brixton
