Bet you're not repeating the same work each day though!

You are right though, no one is forced to see them if they don't want to

My job is completely different everyday,the point I am making is the price they are charging, and the same set..

That's all,I love The Specials, but enough is enough!!!

There is a touch of irony that the band who were vocal against Thatchers tories have taken a slight twist on the current tory cutbacks....

I mean, in many industries people are doing more work for the same pay (or less) due to cutbacks in workforce, but The Specials are still charging the same rate for less members Very Happy I think the tories would argue case proven that cuts can work.

They are currently an embarrassment charging the prices for tickets..

Don't think I've ever compared music and art to wage labour or commercial pop.

I try and support The Lads whenever possible whether as The Specials or solo projects,Skabilly Rebels,Nevs band etc so I have no problem paying the prices for the up coming tour however I am off to see The Selecter in Brum next week and 2 tickets for that gig are cheaper than 1 for The Specials at Wolverhampton.

I am also watching the Selecter with my wife on Sat 8th March at the Wedgewood Rooms Portsmouth. I saw the Specials play Portsmouth Guildhall on June 19th 1980 and again at the same venue last year. Numerous times in between as well. I said that gig would be the last time as I had gone full circle. This time with Roddy gone as well I admit I did think twice, but the love of the music from a very young skinhead to now is still there and always will be. I could not really say no. Cool
