AGMP Presents … THE BEAT "...Still Can't Stop It" 40th Anniversary Tour

Plus Special Guests

Price: £22.50 (+ £3 booking fee*)

Legendary 2-Tone Ska Reggae Group led by vocalist Dave Wakeling celebrate their 40th Anniversary.

The Beat formed in 1979 and released their debut single, an infectious cover of the Smokey Robinson classic ‘Tears of A Clown’ on 2-Tone Records which went straight into the UK national charts at #6. Along with their contemporaries The Specials, Madness and The Selecter, The Beat became an overnight sensation.

Over the course of the next five years The Beat released three studio albums 'I Just Can't Stop It', 'Wha'appen' and 'Special Beat Service'. The Beat toured the world alongside artists such as The Clash, The Police, The Specials, The Pretenders, REM, Talking Heads, and David Bowie.

The Beat enjoyed a series of classic hit singles between 1979-1983 such as 'Mirror in the Bathroom', 'Best Friend', 'Can't Get Used to Losing You', 'Hands Off...She's Mine', 'Too Nice To Talk To', 'Drowning', 'Doors of your Heart', 'Save it for Later', 'I Confess', 'Stand Down Margaret' and 'Twist and Crawl'.  

Get tickets for the 40th anniversary tour for one of the most popular and influential bands of the 2-Tone Ska movement.
