The Specials are hitting up the States this Spring. BrooklynVegan announced this morning that The Specials have two confirmed dates at SXSW.
Official tour dates and venues have not been announced yet. However, according the band’s website, they’ll be kicking off the tour in Chicago. The band will then head to Austin for their two SXSW dates. The West Coast can anticipate the band to do gigs in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver.
Unfortunately, Neville Staple will not be joining the band on their North American tour, due to health reasons.
Keep an eye on the band’s blog for more tour date and venue announcements.
