Two-tone pioneers The Specials have announced that they are to embark on a UK tour in 2013.
Having recently played a big part in the Hyde Park closing show for the London 2012 Olympics, the band will play gigs across the UK, ideal for fans on city breaks wanting to catch a performance.
The group, who reformed in 2009 to celebrate their 30th anniversary, will play dates around the country, with the tour getting underway on Friday, May 10th in Glasgow.
They will then go on to play venues in Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Leicester, Birmingham, Newport, Margate and Portsmouth before finishing off at the O2 Academy in Brixton on Tuesday, May 28th.
Also on the band's schedule is a small, intimate show for BBC 6 Music on Sunday, December 12th at the famous Maida Vale studios.
However, the May tour will be the best chance for fans of the group to see them in action, with tickets going on sale at 09:00 GMT on Friday, December 7th.
