Club 85, Hitchin, Saturday 2nd November

Special Kinda Madness are coming back to Club 85 for the third time on Saturday 2nd November with their classic take on Madness and The Specials.

No strangers to venue or Hitchin the band have sold out the venue twice previously.

Here's the lowdown; Special Kinda Madness perform a truly authentic set from each band, combining the phenomenally energetic stage presence of The Specials with the wonderful iconic tunes of the Madness ‘Nutty Boys’. Playing a set from each band and producing a show that will have the audience up and dancing from the off, Special Kinda Madness will have everyone hankering after that exciting era of 2-Tone and ska.

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 probably never will happen now … but you can get the next best thing with Special Kinda Madness!

2 Bands … 2-Tone … 1 Fantastic Night!

There is no support on the night as the band play 2 sets with the running order of Specials or Madness to be decided on the night. Doors open at 7.45pm with the band taking to the stage for their first set at 8.30pm.

Entry £12 in advance, more on the door.
Doors 7.45pm

Advance tickets are available now from Bar 85 from the 2nd March and all the usual outlets from the 9th March
