I remember the fire too in 1980 at Ally Pally as lived at Enfield then.
Also the awful,idea that someone seriously thought Spurs and Arsenal would share a ground there.
I also put my arm around Mrs Teflon there and looked out over the fabulous view knowing I had met my soulmate... shame she is an Arsenal fan otherwise perfect.
Now the Cov boys that I had the immense pleasure of meeting and good fortune to work with over 30 years ago will be at Ally Pally... a fitting finale.

The Specials are a special band... and so are its special fans.

No mention in the opening post of the connection with freds perry?

I don't have tickets for any of the tour and i see no mention of a ticket required to get into this razzamatazz prior to the main event other than being a forum member - for which i tick that box.

Clarification?

I hope Aunty Shan hasn't been pushed aside by the big boys? Evil or Very Mad

robbo-

its got nothing to do with shan being pushed anywhere and it upsets me that you think that way. Im gobsmacked to be honest,I have devoted my life to promoting this band and it goes on EVERY DAY- we worked our arses off for this, (YES ME AND MIKE) end of. just thought the band and fans might wanna share the event. well fuck me, makes you wonder why we bother. you have to be a forum member yes,and have a gig ticket

Fred Perry have worked closely with the band since the reformation and are wanting to be in on the act.Fuckin result in my eyes.

What happens to the Nanker Ally Pally Pre gig... I know its now the Ally Pally BREAKFAST & LUNCH Pre Gig... yeah bring it on.


We'll be doing our regular event at The Canterbury Arms before the Brixton show......so no fear. It free, from 4pm, get there early because once we're full there's no more entry, and we're only 2mins walk from the venue.

This actually gives me the chance to go and enjoy Ally Pally, because to be fair, I'm gonna be knackered by then anyway after Brighton, Brixton and Time Tunnel on the Friday before Brixton.

I need to get in training for all the dancing.

Well done Willo and Mike and anyone else involved in setting this up.

I wasn't going to be going to the Ally Pally gig but it sounds like it's going to be beg, borrow or steal to get a ticket now.

Much appreciated for all your hard work.

That's the news I was dreading, with all the work we have already done on the pre gig but I guess we just shelve that now.

On the plus side, as Nanks said, we (the Ally Pally Pre gig team) can concentrate on enjoying ourselves on the day without any of the pressures of organising - the only sad bit for me is that we had planned a after party with a Special DJ and now, it seems, that might not happen.

I Know there is going to be an after party at the Horatia Pub with the Estimators playing live.
