The Specials have announced plans to appear at the annual Live at the Marquee festivities in Cork. The ska legends will perform in the tent on 11th June next summer and you can get your hands on tickets for the modest sum of €49.50 - 33.

The Specials are best known for the massive success of 'Ghost Town', 'A Message To You, Rudy', 'Gangsters', 'Too Much, Too Young', Stereotype' and 'Free Nelson Mandela'.

The band celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2009 and kicked off a tour which has essentially continued to the present day and cemented their position as one of the most fun an energetic live acts around nowadays.
