The English Beat Australian and New Zealand Tour 2014

“Dave Wakeling and his posse doled out the sweetness and ska everyone had come for” – Tone Deaf

The English Beat’s first ever tour of Australia in 2012 was a runaway success with Sold Out shows in Sydney (2 nights!), Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. The Ska Legends return this year for a repeat session of skankin’ good times!

Charging onto the scene as ‘the hottest thing since the Pennsylvania meltdown’ in 1979, Birmingham’s Ska Kings sustained an equally explosive career, spearheading the British Ska movement alongside influential acts like The Specials, Madness, Bad Manners and The Selecter. Their sound is a cosmic blend of ska, punk and reggae. Hypnotic, rhythmic and danceable while remaining politically aware and socially active.

"the energy of punk and the groove of dub in a three minute single"

The current US-based incarnation boasts a setlist jam packed with fan favourites ‐ Mirror In the Bathroom, Save It For Later, Too Nice to Talk To, Stand Down Margaret, Hands Off She’s Mine, I Confess and their 2Tone Records debut, a skankin’ cover of Smokey Robinson’s classic, Tears Of A Clown to name a few!

There’s something ageless about songs that make you dance ... get your tickets to The English Beat and skank the night away!
