THE BEAT FEAT. RANKING JNR ANNOUNCE 2023 SHOWS - TICKETS ON SALE NOW
Ska and reggae icons - THE BEAT - will be heading out on tour in 2023.
With Ranking Junior now taking centre stage, the band will be heading to Swindon, Exeter, Bournemouth, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Leamington Spa, Frome, Bridport, Southampton and beyond as they look to energise audiences with some of the most famous ska and reggae tracks ever written.
One of the key bands in the UK ska revival of the late ‘70s and ‘80s, The Beat still bring the near-perfect balance of pop melodies and taut rhythms that made them stars and won them worldwide acclaim.
Based in Birmingham, The Beat released their debut single "Tears of a Clown" through The Specials' 2-Tone label in 1979. The single went Top Ten in the UK and they soon struck a deal with Arista to distribute on their own Go Feet label.
Their debut studio album ‘Just Can't Stop' went Gold in England, and included the now-cult single "Mirror In The Bathroom". The band's ferocious live performances and clever blend of personal and political lyrics continue to make them stars to this day, and they'll be diving into their back catalogue at these new year shows.
