I saw these two gigs on this tour enjoyed both. Home town Perth was a fest so got to see the pogues and others but shorter set. But Melbourne last night a better venue with longer and an encore of guns of navarone took the biscuit. Back to hotel drenched in sweat a happy man. Very Happy Laughing Surprised

Spud - it was great to see you at the Melbourne gig (again) and meet the lovely Mrs Spud this time!

But for my two cents worth - yes the concert was brilliant, but the downside from my point of view - and I cannot understand why this happened - was seeing Roddy Radiation perform without a microphone - he usually does backing vocals and does his rock 'n' roll moves, but this time he didn't do any backing vocals or sing at all - which is crazy considering he wrote some of the great Specials tunes (or co-wrote).

At times he looked a little lost in my opinion. I don't know who made the decision to take Roddy's microphone away but it was definitely noticed and I think without his backing vocals and singing it did impact the show. He was stuck in the far left side of the stage for most of the show. Sad bring back the Roddy moves, grooves and singing.
