The Specials Confirm 2010 North American Mini-Tour Dates

It would appear that tickets for The Specials show at Terminal 5 in New York City on Wednesday April 21, 2010 will finally go on sale this Friday February 5, 2010 at Noon. Click here to buy tickets from the venue.

There was significant confusion about the date after the show was first announced almost 2 weeks ago on the Terminal 5 Web site and then suddenly disappeared. Speculation and innuendo ensued and there has not been an explanation from either the club or the band about what happened. Nevertheless, the good news is that the show appears to be on. The question now is how fast will it sell out, if it does will any additional New York dates be added and who is the support act?

Bryan at Read Junk posted the band's itinerary for the Spring including live and TV dates in North America:

Tuesday 13th April: Appearance On NBC`S Late Night With Jimmy Fallon 12:35/11:35c

Thursday 15th April: Concert At Club Nokia Los Angeles California

Friday 16th April: Performance At Coachella Festival Indio California

Monday 19th April: Concert At Sound Academy Toronto Ontario Canada

Wednesday 21st April: Terminal 5 New York NY

In the meantime, to whet your appetite for what to expect, below is video taken from the forthcoming Live DVD recorded last fall in Wolverhampton that is set for release later this month.

I'm hoping to organize an after party the night of the show at a bar in Manahattan for all fans of the band. More details to be posted in the next few weeks.

Great news MicroChip. I scored my tix in the AMEX pre-sale too!

As my mother always says "From your mouth to God's ears!'. Stay tuned for some potential Bigger Thomas/Specials news.

Any update on this? It would be great to see you guys play. You were kind of on a re-roll a few years ago. I feel like I saw you guys at like Bowery Poetry, and then a couple 3-Floors in a row, but not since.

Hey Microchip! The big news is that we are playing a few shows opening for Roddy Radiation of The Specials. Hope you can come by the NY Beat reunion on 4/10 at Dusk Lounge. We also have after parties following The Specials shows on 4/20 and 4/21 at Dusk Lounge.
