The Specials Special Guests Confirmed as Golding Side-Project for Winter 2009 UK Tour

Posted: 23rd October 2009
The Specials

The forthcoming Specials UK tour has been strengthened with the confirmed support band, Pama International on all of their dates. Pama are also playing their own dates in between and after the Specials shindigs in support of a new album, "Pama Outernational" (out on Nov 2nd) and a new single "I Still Love You More" (out on Nov 9th).

It seems only fitting for the 2 bands to play on the same bill since Pama features Lynval Golding (and has done for 17 years). The album will also feature another Specials member, Sir Harold Panter, and boasts John Collins as a co-producer - he produced "Ghost Town". The album is a mash-up of soul and roots reggae and should go down a storm with the headlining Coventry heavyweights.

As well as the confirmed Specials support, Pama International (named after the famous UK rocksteady / reggae label from the 70's) will play the dates in their own right between 30th October and 19th December in Ulverston, Aberdeen, Brighton, Swindon, Watchet, Bristol, Nprwich, Bradford and Newcastle (and most are a tenner or under!).
