Event Information

Doors will open at 7pm, and entry to the Outdoor Theatre will be via the Cannon Hill Park entrance.

Neville Staple, legendary front man of The Specials, Fun Boy Three and Special Beat, also known as The Original Rude Boy, is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once, but twice. 

His 2-Tone legacy is huge. 2-Tone fused traditional ska music with punk rock attitude, energy and musical elements. The movement helped to transcend and defuse racial tensions in Thatcher-era Britain. The actual black and white chequered imagery of 2 Tone has become almost as famous as the music itself.

Neville's 40-year career in the music business started out from the early days with Ray King, Pete Waterman, The Coventry Automatics and his Jah Baddis Sound System, before taking to the stage with The Specials during the famous ‘Clash’ tour.

Dig out your pork-pie hats and get ready for a great night of live music in MAC's freshly spruced up Outdoor Theatre!
