The Specials Reunite For 30th Anniversairy

The Specials have announced they are to reunite in 2009 to celebrate their 30th Anniversairy.

In an interview with NME, frontman Terry Hall explained:
"It's the right time to do it [reunite] - we talked about it at 25 but we weren't together enough. Now we're all getting on and it feels comfortable again."

Original members of the band including Hall, Neville Staple, Sir Horace Gentleman, Roddy Radiation, Lynval Golding and John Bradbury are all confirmed to play the shows. However, founding member Jerry Dammers will not be participating though Hall is not ruling it out. The shows will be the first time the bulk of the band members have worked together since 1981.
