The Selecter & The Beat

Friday 24th November - O2 Academy, Bournemouth

2 Tone legends The Selecter and The Beat are teaming up to give fans a rare treat, hitting the road together for a number of dates around the UK and Ireland. Originally a six-date tour, due to demand they have now added 8 more dates with tickets on sale Wed 14 December. The two bands will also be playing live at Maida Vale on 13 December for Steve Lamacq's Christmas Ska Party on BBC Radio 6 with other guests David Rodigan and MungosHiFi.

Life-long friends, they are two of the main bands to come out of 2 Tone– a crucial musical and cultural movement which is still as relevant today as it was over 30 years ago. Renowned for their energetic live shows, longevity has not diminished either band’s ability to put in a performance and get everyone in a room, or field, dancing. Don’t miss arguably two of the best live bands around playing full sets of their many hits, and more each night.
