Our Jett was going to do a spell on the decks at our after party so it would be nice if that could be transfered over.

Also John was bringing his this art 2Tone exhibition, it would be nice if space could be found for that too.

What a lucky bunch!

Tearing it up pre gig @ Alexandra Palace with "3 Specials" in Terry, John & Lynval plus the mighty Mark Lamarr. Not forgetting the added bonus of meeting the forum Admin team.

I wouldn't fancy being a rickshaw rider trying to get up Ally Pally hill Laughing

No inspiration was needed for this believe me ,this pre- gig was set in motion many moons ago even before the actual tour was announced and I recall sending out messages (they are still in my outbox) to actually say we were gonna doing something specials2 official.Its taken awhile to sort out because of the red tape etc..meetings etc.,awaiting responses from busy people but its here and its gonna be a beauty. Teflon hasnt mentioned the exhibition although he has declared that himself and Yvonne are coming along - Be a nice touch if he was still interested.

Hi all
Well done to everyone for all there hard work for organising this pre-gig party. I was wondering how this event is going to work, by what I mean is, will there be a list of peoples names on the door, so they know who to let in.
Many thanks

Will that mean a lot of jonny come lately's at the event ? Does that mean the admin team have done a lot of work for the members of the forum, for occasional fans to benefit from? I would have difficulty accepting that any joe public could log onto either Fred Perry or The Specials.com and get access to an event essentially designed for die hard fans ... most of whom have spent thousands of pounds following this reunion...

Is there a fan hierarchy?

Are some fans better and more deserving than others?

Lots of people who are not forum members have spent lots supporting these tours. I know numerous people who have been to many of the reunion shows who are not members here. Am I a better fan than them or of they than me?

Is a person who has only been able to afford one gig less deserving than someone who can afford to go 5, 6,7,8 times.

What is die hard?

Who decides how much love is enough?

Who decides who cares more?

Sometimes there's a little too much purism on here.

What does The Specials old school tie look like cos I don't think I got one that matches everyone elses.

Celebration is inclusive.
