Description:

After thirty years of creating some of the finest ska and reggae-pop the world has even heard, Dave Wakeling and THE ENGLISH BEAT finally are making it to Australia in August 2012.

Fuelled by the anger of punk and the English winter of discontent Wakeling’s THE ENGLISH BEAT alongside contemporaries such as The Specials and Madness were at the forefront of the British Ska movement.

Dave Wakeling explained “I liked the exhilaration of punk and the hypnotic quality of reggae, and I was sure you could combine them into something … hypnotic, but rhythmic and danceable too”. What followed was a string of classic hits – “Mirror in the Bathroom”, “Save It for Later”, and “Too Nice to Talk To”.

The English Beat’s sound is a driving blend of ska, punk, rock and reggae that’s made for dancing, so whatever else you do as you head into spring, make sure you don’t miss out on the fun when The English Beat let loose with a solid show of good times!
