2 Tone legends The Selecter and The Beat are teaming up to give fans a rare treat, hitting the road together for a number of dates around the UK and Ireland. Originally a six-date tour, due to demand they have now added eight more dates.
Life-long friends, they are two of the main bands to come out of 2 Tone – a crucial musical and cultural movement which is still as relevant today as it was over 30 years ago. Renowned for their energetic live shows, longevity has not diminished either band’s ability to put in a performance and get everyone in a room, or field, dancing. Don’t miss arguably two of the best live bands around playing full sets of their many hits, and more each night.
The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black, alongside an incredible talented band of musicians, and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. Their latest album, Subculture, was mixed by UK dub-master Prince Fatty and released to critical acclaim in June 2015. The Beat fronted by Ranking Roger released their spectacular fourth album Bounce (the first in over 30 years) in September 2016.
