The Specials

Plus special guest The Rifles, The Skints & Offworld

Pioneers in UK Ska, and one of the most influential and seminal acts in British history, The Specials will be coming to The Piece Hall on Sunday 29 August 2021.

Founded in 1977 The Specials were at the forefront of the 2 Tone movement, changing the face of UK music in the 1980s with 7 successive top 10 singles between 1979 & 1981 including number one hits like ‘Too Much Too Young’ & ‘Ghost Town’. The band reformed in 1993 and have wowed fans across the world on the live circuit since, including a huge sold out show at Leeds’ Millennium Square in May 2017. In 2019 the band released ‘Encore’ their first album in 18 years, which gave the band their first ever number one album, 40 years after the release of their self-titled debut.

The Specials bring with them a very special supporting bill that includes mod rockers The Rifles, ska-reggae upstarts The Skints and OffWorld, with more to be announced. There’s sure to be plenty of skanking as it becomes the native dance of Halifax for one night in summer.

From 1 June until 31 August The Piece Hall will be opening at the earlier time of 9am, seven days a week.

We’re hosting 35 shows and events over the next three months, but while things look a bit different in the courtyard all our independent shops are all open as usual.

The Piece Hall will close a little earlier at 4pm on show days so we can make final preparations for the evening gigs.
