Newport Centre gig.

Night ruined by an idiot who threw a whole bottle of lager at Terry Hall ! He was totally pissed off and left the stage. When he finally came back on his choice of words................................, well I have never seen him that angry.

Things could've turned very nasty at one point. So glad they carried on though.

I definately missed Neville Staples, with his jolly banter and dancing etc.

The whole band seemed different, and not enjoying it like on previous tours.

Personally this is the first Specials gig where I haven't felt the want to dance or even be there. Perhaps this will be my last Specials gig as I left before the encore.

Do the dog, does'nt make it, message, etc were great as always but the spark for me was'nt there for the whole gig. Normally I'd be bouncing around like TIGGER for the whole time.

I wish the The Specials including all past members best wishes in all they do and a VERY BIG THANKYOU for being a BRILLIANT part of my life. However I MAY leave the memories to the vinyl collection from now on, but still play FULL BLAST and Love every moment. Cheers guys it was a BLAST!

I did that from the word go (or the word reunion). And franky I'm glad I did.

The whole thing is way past it's sell by date. People getting excited because a few additional tracks from 30 years ago were added to a set list that has basically remained unchanged since the end of 2008??? Really???

Shame that. Colleague at work said this had happened and they still enjoyed the night.

Especially sad as I saw them in Brum on Tuesday night and they were absolutely bouncing! Terry never shut up and some bloke proposed to his girlfriend on stage in the middle of the oncores! Loved it.

I wouldn't say way past it's sell-by-date or anything like this. I'm still as excited about The Specials now as a 47 year old in 2013 who has lost his hair as I was as a 13 year old in 1979 who had closely cropped hair. Some bands who have been around for years do simply go through the motions but The Specials are still a fantastic live band. Having seen them on this tour - they are still brilliant, even without Neville. They are brilliant musicians in their own right and Terry has been on great form. As a band they are still unique. Here's to the next tour.

Everything has it's place including nostalgia....i don't wear Sta Press trousers but some people do.
The fact they can still sell out a month long UK tour speaks volumes to me.

I'd be pissed off as well if someone threw a bottle of beer at me, might have contributed to the atmosphere or band morale on the night?

Freedom to choose is a fantastic thing and if people decide not to go see this band that's their choice and good luck to them. Personally I've seen only one below par performance in the 15 or so times I've seen the Specials and that aint a bad ratio.

I saw them in Liverpool and thought the opposite,they all looked like they were really enjoying themselves. The sound quality was the best I've heard on any of their previous shows.
The initial thrill felt of seeing them on the first 'reunion' tour has dissipated,but I guess that was to be expected.
Still a great band playing great songs and giving the vast majority of gig goers what they want.

It ain't rocket science. Smile

hmmm, I'm romantic but definitely not sentimental which is why I liked the Specials in the first place with their biting music and critical commentary. I can't help but think the static playlist is a sign of a lacking of coherence between the members who just play their individual repetitive input. If I were a musician myself, I would find it tedious as I'm not driven by money and merchandise.

i take some of the points on board but you cant expect them to be the same without nev they r so different without him but ive seen a lot of young bands that could not lace there boots. ive been a bit dissapointed but probably because we expect the same as before.but im in all the way and will always go and see them live.

They're still the best for me by far !!
5 out of the 7 original members 30 years on - brilliant

Hope Terry is ok. I would have been pi@@ed off too. I hope the bottle thrower got what he deserved !!!

Thirteen high energy gigs since 3 May must takes its toll.

They're not as young as they were.
