«Back in 1979, pop was getting dull again. Everyone said it was time for a new dance. No-one expected it to come from Coventry. The 2-Tone revolution, led by the Specials, took the pop world by surprise with their infectious mix of Ska rhythms and punk attitude. Madness… followed close on their heels. Within a matter of months the 2-Tone bands had stolen our hearts and conquered the charts with a non-stop procession of unforgettable hits: 'Gangsters', 'A Message to you Rudy', 'Too Much Too Young', 'The Prince', 'One Step Beyond', 'My Girl' ...»
An extract from Dance Craze by Garry Bushell

On 21st July 1979 at the Electric Ballroom in London, the Specials played a gig with Madness, Dexy's Midnight Runners and Selecter. That's a gig that all 2-Tone rude boys and rude girls would die to see, and thought would never happen. The Specials and Madness on the same bill!

In truth, it will probably never happen now… but you can get the next best thing!

Special Kinda Madness play a truly authentic set from each band, matching the incredible energy of The Specials with the unforgettable iconic songs of Madness. Producing a show that will have the audience up and dancing from the start, Special Kinda Madness will have everyone hankering back to those exciting days of 2-Tone and Ska.
The Specials and Madness together. Wow! Catch'em now while you can!
