Great news and very unexpected. Biggest surprise of all though is the fact that they will be playing in Scunthorpe.

Can't find any ticket prices. Hopefully these will be reflected now there's only 3 original members. Should be £20-25 max.

I think there is more chance of my arse playing the banjo than the tickets being that price.

The new issue of Mojo (with Iggy Pop on the cover) has a small feature with Terry talking to his old friend Ian Harrison.
Terry says he had a civil chat with Jerry at Brad's funeral. It had been their first face to face meeting in 8 years.
He says Brad had a home studio and they recorded a few things before he died. Brad also sent him some tracks which he hasn't been able to listen to as it's so soon after his death.
Terry, Horace and Lynval all agree the tour is the right thing to do and that it's what Brad would have wanted. However they don't know what they'll do after this tour.

Very interesting but will we ever get to hear any of those recordings? The Specials should record a new album and dedicate it to the memory of John Bradbury and Rico? they could even ask Jerry, Neville, Roddy and Dick Cuthell if they wanted to contribute something to the album, a song a guest appearance or production work?

Personally I would prefer something like this to happen than another tour?

Terry made a comment in Mojo about how Pete Townshend & Roger still tour under the banner of "The Who" and therefore he, Horace and Lynval can be "The Specials".
I think it's possible that Dick and Nev will appear with Jerry either on stage or on record.
I think Roddy is enjoying being in his new band.
Who knows though? A new album by any of The Specials would be great. We'll have to wait and see

When's the last time The Who released a decent record?

This whole thing is now reaching into Spinal Tap territory.
