The Beat & The Selecter teamed up in 2017 for a select number of shows

around the world. Originally a six-date tour, due to phenomenal demand they are playing nearly 40 dates including a night at London’s iconic Roundhouse in October which sold out months in advance.

The tour is now continuing into 2018 with tours of Australia, New Zealand Scandinavia and now Frome. With the bands selling out major venues the world over this is a rare chance to catch one of the most in demand tours in such an intimate setting!

THE SELECTER

The Selecter, the riotous skank machine who exploded out of Coventry in the game-changing, multi-cultural 2 Tone explosion of 1979 release their brand new album ‘Daylight’ on October 6th. Now reunited around the nucleus of original members Pauline Black and Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson, The Selecter are firing on all righteous cylinders in 2017 and ‘Daylight’ is their most urgent, politically engaged and purely uplifting music since the days of ‘Too Much Pressure’ and ‘Celebrate The Bullet’.

Many faces have moved through The Selecter’s line-up since their early days in Coventry. Now a mix of musicians – “four white and four black, very 2-Tone” – work with Pauline, Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson and producer-writer-arranger Neil Pyzer in a tight-knit family team. They will launch ‘Daylight’ at the (now sold out) London Roundhouse on October 6 with a special double-header with fellow 2 Tone veterans The Beat featuring Ranking Roger. Fans can expect classics from “On My Radio” and ‘Missing Words” plus the new tracks too.

THE BEAT FEAT RANKING ROGER

The Beat fronted by Ranking Roger released their spectacular fourth album Bounce (the first in over 30 years) in September 2016. The album shows off every gleaming aspect of one of the most musically diverse bands to come out of the multiracial, multicultural explosion that remade British pop from 1979 onwards. Joining Roger in the revitalised band is his son Ranking Junior AKA Matthew Murphy a powerhouse MC who brings to the band an update on the toasting that made Ranking Roger such a pivotal part of the original Beat. The same energy that drove the hit singles of the 80s; Mirror In The Bathroom, Stand Down Margaret and Too Nice To Talk To – is here again on the new album.
